  Mission Statement: The goal of the St. Coleman Education Foundation is to enhance the quality of education at our school. Our primary focus is to raise monies for an endowment which will generate interest annually. The goal is to use the interest to reward quality teachers. This will enhance our ability to attract and retain the best teachers and staff. Any contributions earmarked by a donor for a specific purpose must and will be honored. We are striving for excellence in Catholic Education.  
 
Why Should I donate?
Teaching is a crucial vocation, especially in Catholic Schools. Teachers spend more time with our children than most parents do today. Here in the Archdiocese of Miami, Pastors strive to pay the Catholic School Teachers roughly three-quarters of the public school salaries. Consequently, our goal is to reward teachers for their dedicated service.
 
 
Why don't they just raise tuition?
St. Coleman School's goal is to keep tuition affordable so as to not exclude any child desiring a Catholic Education.
 
 
What is an endowment?
An endowment is a permanent investment. The principal is never spent; thereby, ensuring the continued availability of the interest generated. Interest earned from the endowment principal is returned to the school to reward teachers unless specifically requested by the donor to be used in a different manner.
 
 
Who will manage the St. Coleman Education funds?
The endowment will be managed by the Archdiocese of Miami Education Foundation, Inc. (AEF), an autonomous but related agency of the Archdiocese of Miami. AEF is a non-profit organization incorporated in Florida since 1982, which manages approximately $31 Million in assets from 85 different area Catholic Schools. Professional consultants, overseen by a board of directors, manage the assets of the Foundation. This entity is audited annually by independent Certified Public Accountants. While AEF is under the umbrella of the Archdiocese, it is legally independent.
 
 
Is St. Coleman on the leading edge?
NO! Most schools in our area have established foundations, including St. Anthony, St. Gregory, St. Joan of Arc, Cardinal Gibbons, St. Thomas Aquinas, Pope John Paul II, and others. Teacher compensation at some of these schools is already equivalent to public school levels.
 
 
Is my donation tax deductible?
Yes.
 
 
How Can I Help?
You can help by identifying potential donors, hosting a fundraising event, helping at Grandparents' Day and assisting with marketing and advertising.
