Board of Directors

The Saint Francis High School Board of Directors ensures that the school stays true to its mission and philosophy. Board members make sure that the school is managed effectively, legally, ethically and efficiently, while developing policies that are mission based, visionary and consistent with Catholic teachings in the tradition of Holy Cross.

Board members are committed leaders who are dedicated and supportive of the school’s programs and policies. They understand that Catholic, value-based education helps form the hearts of students, enabling them to be successful members of society.

Advisory Boards

Growth Fund Advisory Board

In 1990, former President Kevin Makley, then serving as Saint Francis’ director of development, was faced with limited resources with which to meet the demands of a growing school. He was reluctant to rely solely on tuition increases to fulfill these needs, and recognizing this position, two parents and longtime SFHS supporters, venture capitalists BJ Cassin and Sam Colella, approached Kevin with an idea to leverage the school’s unique Silicon Valley location to raise additional money for the school. Soon after, Kevin worked with BJ, Sam and additional key parents to create a venture fund--the SF Growth Fund--as a way to generate additional revenue for the school. The founding members personally provided the initial seed money, and subsequent gifts to the fund have come from individual donors.

The purpose of the SF Growth Fund is to provide an alternative method for donors to contribute assets to SFHS and to invest in venture capital-backed companies and manage such investments, thus helping to satisfy the long-term needs of the school. During the course of its history, the SF Growth Fund has benefited from several investments that have yielded positive returns. One notable early success story, which occurred in 1996, was a $2.1 million return on a $25,000 investment in a company called Advanced Fiber. The SF Growth Fund is separate from the school’s primary endowment, and the returns are not used to offset the school’s annual operating expenses.

Endowment Fundraising Committee

The objective of the Endowment Fundraising Committee is to raise money for the school’s endowment which funds financial aid. The endowment funds are professionally managed, and growth is tracked. Only income generated from the endowed principal is used. As the principal grows, the amount of income generated for financial aid grows as well.
