Empower Girls With Dreams to Become Women of Vision
As the only private Catholic college-preparatory school for young women in Bucks County, Villa takes seriously its Mission to encourage and celebrate the dignity, potential, and uniqueness of each young woman. Like diamonds, our Jems are empowered to become the best version of themselves. It is only with your help that this mission is realized.
Every dollar given to Villa Joseph Marie builds the foundation of another young woman’s future, celebrates the accomplishments of the women who have come before her, and secures continued opportunities for those who will follow her. The Annual Fund enables the school to create an educational culture of excellence, provide access to students of all socioeconomic circumstances, maintain the school’s facility and campus, and support the professional development and growth of our faculty.
We need you and your families to get involved: recommend Villa to others, participate in a fundraising activity, attend an event, give a monetary gift, or volunteer your time. Contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law. In many cases, your generous donation can be doubled (or even tripled!) through your employer’s matching gift. Whatever your contribution, your active stewardship of Villa Joseph Marie demonstrates your shared commitment to Mother Maria’s vision… “Always more, Always better, Always with love.”
Annual Campaign Kickoff 2016-2017
On Thursday, October 20, the Villa faculty and staff helped launch the 2016-2017 Annual Fund with a sneak-peek into their morning commutes. In recognition of Villa's Principal, Lauren Carr, the video is aptly named "CarrPool Karaoke." This presentation is available online at https://vimeo.com/188185454/d3d4e605da.
Where Does Your Gift Go?
Gifts from the 2015-2016 Annual Fund supported the purchase of outdoor driveway lighting, a new boiler, an air conditioner for our Computer Lab, technology equipment, and a new sound system for the gym. As tuition covers only 85% of the costs of operating and maintaining our school, we are dependent on the generous support of donors to our Annual Fund and other fundraising activities to cover the 15% deficit. Won't you consider a gift to our Annual Fund this year?
Volunteer Incentives and Matching Gifts
Many companies participate in Volunteer Incentive and/or Matching Gift programs. These are easy ways to contribute to Villa's Annual Fund. To inquire about these programs at your place of employment, contact your company's Human Resources/Personnel Office. If they have a program and you qualify, simply obtain the appropriate form, complete the donor sections, and submit the form to the school.
