Why Give?

Thank you for considering a gift to St. Theresa of the Child Jesus School. St. Theresa’s relies on annual gifts of all sizes from our parents, grandparents, alumni, Board of Directors, faculty, staff, and community members to bridge the gap between what tuition covers and the cost of a quality independent Catholic education.

Your gift demonstrates your belief in the value of a Catholic elementary education focused on academic excellence, diversity, and community. Many of our programs would not be possible without the contributions of donors like you. We thank you for your continued support.
