The Salesian Call

What is the Salesian Call?

The Salesian Call is an organized campaign appeal for general operating funds for the Bosco Catholic School System. It is comprised of gifts from alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty and staff, friends and area businesses. The name comes from the followers of St. John Bosco, known as the Salesians. The Call is our call to action to support Catholic Education in our parishes.

Why is it needed?

There is always a gap between the amount of tuition received and what it costs to actually educate a student.  For this reason, nearly every independent school in the country, from elementary to universities, relies on an annual fund to make up the difference not covered by tuition payments.  The goal of the campaign is to supplement the general operating budget of the school, thus keeping tuition affordable and accessible, while providing the opportunity for continually enhanced programs and quality faculty . 

Why make a gift?

Only with generous and consistent support can the Bosco Catholic School System provide and maintain the highest quality educational experience possible for our students today and in the future, thus helping them become the best they can be, both intellectually and spiritually.  Additionally, a gift made to the Salesian Call provides those who support the Bosco Catholic System the opportunity to make a tax deductible gift for any amount. 

Can I give other types of gifts?

We will gladly accept gifts of all kinds. If you are interested in giving gifts of stock, from retirement accounts, or making a bequest to Bosco Catholic School System, please contact the Development Office.
