THANK YOU TO OUR 2021-2022 PREMIER SPONSORS
YEARLY EVENT SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM
Every year SPA Parish and School achieves excellence in fostering spiritual, intellectual, social, physical and faith growth for our students and community members. Our school and parish community needs to meet certain funding goals to be able to support our mission of providing a God-centered education to our students and evangelizing to our whole community. We wouldn’t be able to support our students on their educational journeys or provide many services to our faith community without sponsors supporting our multiple fundraisers.
The chart below shows the numerous options for yearly event sponsorship with SPA. Our Premier Level Sponsors are limited to 8/year and are filled on a first come, first serve basis. The Sponsorship levels Platinum, Gold and Silver are event specific and allow you to pick & choose to create your own unique sponsorship package. Businesses and Families are welcome to sponsor.
All sponsorship’s support expenses for hosting fundraising events that help offset the cost of putting on the events that support both Parish & School funding needs.

St. Paul the Apostle Church & School is one organization. Parishioners get tuition discounts for attending school because the Parish provides around 30% of all Sunday giving and fundraising directly to the school, every year! So all Sunday donations to offertory and attending and donating at fundraisers directly benefit the school!
