2016-2017 Annual Fund
The mission and religious values that have always been intrinsic to Villa remain worthy of your continued support through your generosity specifically by supporting our Annual Fund. The St. John Villa Academy Annual Fund is a major fundraiser for the school and we need the support of our Alumni, parents, and friends to make it a success this year! A strong Annual Fund will support the Academy’s operating budget as we continue to restore the Chapel.
After the significant damages from Hurricane Irene and Sandy, the classrooms in the Chapel Building had to be removed and renovated to provide offices for the Academy’s Administrator; President; Development Staff and Conference area. This was an unplanned but major project that had to be undertaken. Phase 2 of our Building restoration was now underway. The Chapel roof was replaced, the bricks on the East side were re-pointed and window frames were repaired.
We need your help. Our Chapel Building and its surroundings still are in need of major repairs and restorations, beginning with the re-pointing of the remaining 3 sides of the Chapel. Additionally, restorative work is needed around Our Lady’s Grotto, the Chapel Porch, and the outside Stairway.
Every gift to our Annual Fund makes a difference. Your participation is very important - even more important than the amount of the gift. Why? Because every gift is a statement that you support Villa and believe in what we do here. Every gift makes a difference in the lives of our students and your gift will enable our students to create their own Villa memories.
In this year in which our holy Founder was elevated as a Saint, will you help us restore God’s house?
