Annual Fund

Every Gift, Every Family, Every Year

The Annual Fund plays a vital role in our success, and allows us to maintain affordable and accessible tuition.  Donating to the Annual Fund is the best way to directly support ASB, and funds enrichment programs, specialty classes such as art, music, drama, technology, and service learning… all of which make ASB unique. It also allows us to offer competitive salaries to our phenomenal teachers. Every contribution we receive has a huge impact on a student’s education.

Werner Family“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.” – Albert Einstein

 

As parents, we have so much hope for our children. We hope they are happy. Hope they are safe. Hope they can live their best life. This year more than any other year we have a lot to hope for.  We hope that tomorrow is better than yesterday and continues to be better every day.

What we learned from yesterday is the norm keeps changing and we are creating it every day for ourselves and for our children.  We live each day to have hope that one day we can get back to our best life. And the hope for tomorrow is that our children stay safe and develop the skills and confidence to be leaders in this ever-changing world. Because of this, we could not be more grateful for ASB and its role in helping to shape this for our children. 

We have seen our son Greyson who is in the third grade, given all the challenges of this past year still be able to grow and thrive.  And that is in large part because of the ASB community. It is the dedication, commitment, and passion of our wonderful teachers and staff at ASB that make it all possible. In a year where we did not know what tomorrow would bring, ASB stepped up to the challenges and met them head on and gave our children the opportunity to thrive and still feel connected. It is that dedication to our children, that made us appreciate what we have in ASB so much more. We have hope again…ASB has given that back to us.

Without your generous contributions to the Annual Fund, none of this would be possible and we THANK YOU for your continued support. Every donation matters, it provides the hope of what is possible. With your donations, the idea of hope that we have for our children becomes a reality.  It is with that intent and purpose that we are so honored to be this year’s Annual Fund Chairs.  Please consider your contribution this year and we encourage you to reflect on why you chose ASB for your children and what it will continue to help do.  Your generosity is greatly appreciated and makes everything possible today and for many more tomorrows!

Thank you so much for your kind support!

Johnson FamilyWe’ve been blessed to be a part of the ASB community for the past 4 years. After spending a couple of years out-of-state for Allen’s career, we moved back to Seattle seeking a remarkable school and supportive community for our two daughters. We’ve found that and more in Assumption St. Bridget School.

From the moment we took a tour, we knew we had found the type of environment in which our daughters could thrive. Knowing their unique personalities and needs, we knew that the smaller class size and a faith-based curriculum was a must. What we didn’t know was how much we would we come to value the mission of the school, the superb faculty and the incredible community we’ve met.

We’ve made Annual Fund contributions a priority in our annual charitable giving as we know first-hand the value that these funds add to our school. Without your support, it might not be possible for ASB to continue to fund a full-time school psychologist, dedicated art, music and drama teachers, and retain our loving and experienced staff.

Mrs. Conklin and the rest of the faculty exhibit the type of forward-thinking leadership needed to be successful in today’s changing environment. The other day, we overheard our youngest daughter correcting her big sister as she commented about her not knowing how to read. Adelyn very articulately and clearly replied, “No, sissy, I don’t know how to read YET!” These types of interactions are a direct reflection of incorporating the growth mindset in the curriculum. It’s an amazing thing to witness!

We’re honored to be the 2020-2021 Annual Fund Chairs. We know how much ASB means to our family and the importance of being able to keep tuition affordable, retain our talented teachers and provide exceptional and diverse curriculum for our children.

As you consider your contribution to the Annual Fund, we encourage you to reflect upon your children’s experiences at ASB and the growth you’ve witnessed. Your generosity makes many of the unique offerings at ASB a possibility.

Thank you so much for your support!

Allen & Carleigh Johnson, 2020-21 Annual Fund Chairs
