Why Give

St. John Vianney High School has been forming young men for more than 60 years. Those young men become the next generation of husbands, fathers, community and church leaders. They impact the local, regional and global world. Catholic education has become a financial challenge, therefore, schools like Vianney need the support of those that have benefited from and believe in our mission.

In the last 5 years, Vianney has invested significantly in our students:

  • $6.2 million in tuition assistance
  • $3 million for campus and facility upgrades
  • $800,000 for additional educators and technology

Much of the assistance provided and updates to campus would not be possible without the support of our community.

How does your investment impact Vianney?

It depends upon where you designate your gift.

Vianney's Griffin Fund is an annual campaign with proceeds used for campus improvements and regular operating costs. Essentially, it's the school's checking account and requires replenishing to pay for the bills. Alumni, parents, faculty, staff, board members, and students are asked to support the Griffin Fund each year.

The Night of the Griffin Auction is our annual fundraising event to help support the operations of the school and provide additional tuition assistance for students.

You can choose to establish a new scholarship or, you can designate your investment for a current Scholarship to help families in need.

No matter which area you choose to support, you are helping to form young men for spiritual, academic and personal excellence in the Catholic, Marianist tradition.
