The Annual Fund is used to enhance the operational budget of the school. This fund helps pay teachers’ salaries and utility bills, and it also provides for building management and everyday expenses of the school. With the rising costs of running today’s educational institution, the gap between tuition income and expenditures has widened. The Annual Fund is needed to fill that gap and assist Brother Rice High School in meeting all of its financial obligations. The Annual Fund is the backbone of the Development Office, and the strength of the school is significantly impacted by its success each year.
