DONATE TO OUR ANNUAL FUND
JB's life-changing programs and services would not be possible without the financial support of our donors. In addition to supporting our educational programming, the Annual Fund also allows JB to ensure that every child who needs our services can attend; the Annual Fund provides approximately $300,000 annually in financial aid to our students.

Our Board of Directors provides strategic planning and governance for Julie Billiart School and their input and advocacy is invaluable.
Commitment: Board of Directors meetings occur quarterly; preparation time is required. Members of the Board of Directors are expected to support the Annual Fund and to attend JB events whenever possible. In addition, most members of the Board are also members of at least one Board Sub-Committee (see time requirement below).
