Giving

The St. Augustine Society

The St. Augustine Society recognizes those individuals who make annual, leadership gifts of $1,000 or more thus enabling Austin to offer the highest quality educational programs to the young people in our care. Gifts at this level are a testament to the deep commitment YOU have to the school’s mission and to its future.

Membership in the St. Augustine Society is offered to anyone who makes a gift of $1,000 or more to the Austin Fund. Gifts from Society members are used to fund Austin’s need-based, tuition assistance program, athletics, STEAM, along with many other school enhancements. Matching gifts combine with an individual’s personal contribution to determine a donor’s level of gift club recognition.

We are deeply grateful to those individuals who are particularly committed to advancing the school’s long-term viability, and we are honored to recognize them for their generous support.

The St. Augustine Society recognizes eight levels of leadership giving:

Leadership Circle ($50,000+)
1951 Circle of Pride ($25,000 – $49,999)
Friar’s Circle ($10,000 – $24,999)
