The St. Anne Knights’ Fund is our primary annual giving program. See below for details.

The St. Anne Knights’ Fund is our primary philanthropic program each year. This year we celebrate our 30th anniversary as an Independent Roman Catholic School. St. Anne School was founded on philanthropy by a group of parents who saw a need in our community for a higher level of education, values, faith, and excellence for their children. Today we are grateful for the gift of St. Anne School and look forward to continuing to educate the next generation of Knights.  The Knights’ Fund forever impacts each and every student. Whether it is to provide financial aid, technology enhancements, or extracurricular activities, your gift is an investment in our children. By donating to the Knights’ Fund, you signify your support in the mission and future of St. Anne School.

St. Anne employs the independent school financial model, like most of our private school counterparts. Unlike other Catholic schools, we receive no financial support from the Diocese of Orange. This model understands that tuition dollars alone cannot support the cost of providing the depth and breadth of programs and quality and excellence that we all want for our students. Unrestricted, flexible support enables St. Anne School to retain and attract outstanding faculty and provide the very best programs and resources for our students. The difference between the cost of educating a student and tuition can only be bridged by philanthropic support.

Every gift of any size has a direct impact on all of our students.
