To all our donors, THANK YOU! 

This year, thanks to the generosity of our parents, alumni, and friends, Saint Francis surpassed our goal of $100,000 raised on GivingTuesday, providing a significant boost to our tuition assistance program. 

Our GivingTuesday hashtag, #LancersGive, was proven true time and time again as donors joined the effort to ensure that Saint Francis remains the most affordable opportunity among its peer institutions in the Bay Area. 

The school’s historic commitment to the values of Holy Cross and belief that students and families should not be prevented from coming to Saint Francis due to cost would not be possible without the generosity of donors who enable Saint Francis to provide significant tuition assistance to families each and every year.

Again, to all our donors on GivingTuesday and throughout the year, THANK YOU!


"GivingTuesday is a remarkable platform to educate people about the positive impact of philanthropy and to motivate people to give. At Saint Francis High School we rely on the generosity of donors to provide tuition assistance so that cost is not a barrier for families seeking the Holy Cross education that Saint Francis provides"

Paul Lanning,
Executive Director of Institutional Advancement

Every dollar raised on #GivingTuesday supports the school's tuition assistance programs

It's Not too Late to Give

If you were not able to contribute on #GivingTuesday, please know you can always give to the Annual Fund which supports a multitude of programs on campus including: tuition assistance, scholarships, service learning experiences, academic and co-curricular programs, and many other opportunities that help make up the Saint Francis experience.

Your Contributions Make a Difference

The school distributed more than $3.5 million in tuition assistance last year, and we hope to continue to increase the amount of aid we can offer annually to students and families who otherwise might not be able to come to Saint Francis. Every dollar raised through this event will support our tuition assistance programs.
