The Spirit of Giving...
Saint John the Baptist Middle School provides a quality education rooted in Catholic values. We rely on donations to help us bridge the gap between tuition and the true cost of educating each child who attends our school. That generosity sustains us in countless ways. Donations are tax deductible and help the school keep tuition affordable.
A campus-wide, year-long effort to raise funds for the operating costs of the Skaggs Catholic Center Schools. Annual Appeal donations help Saint John the Baptist Middle School sustain and strengthen programs, provide teachers with technology in the classroom, and support tuition assistance to families facing hardship.

Our largest fundraiser is the annual ball, featuring Dinner, Silent and Live Auctions and Entertainment. This event is a open to adults in the SJB and greater Skaggs Catholic Center community as well as corporate and community partners. The Ball offers multiple areas for parent involvement from party planning to auction item procurement and the preparation of individual class auction baskets.
Many businesses match employee giving. Ask your employer for the forms. We also apply to corporations and foundations for grants and in-kind goods, and partner businesses with academic programs. We offer a co-branding opportunity with the Skaggs Catholic Center schools through the Booster Banner campaign which markets sponsors with outdoor banners, and print advertising.
Donations may be made in lieu of flowers for a loved one who has passed, celebrate a birthday, or honor someone special with a gift to the school. A card will be sent to the family by the school. Give on-line, noting to whom the honor is given.
Endowments may be permanently restricted (with earnings rolled over each year to allow them to grow) or temporarily restricted (affording the school the option to draw down on earnings as well as the original principal). Families can build an endowment in their name for a specific purpose over the period in which their children were enrolled, leaving a legacy upon their graduation. Contact 801-984-7665 to learn more.
Donations of goods help cut costs. Contact us for current wish list and needs. Students also conduct periodic canned food and clothing drives for charity for Christmas and during Catholic Schools Week.
Replacement/repair, capital equipment, technology, and property improvements are primarily funded by the Skaggs Catholic Center Capital Projects budget. In addition to net revenue from the cafeteria, Saint Paul’s Place Store, busing, daycare, outside rents/events, and other cost centers, the SCC receives corporate and foundation grants specifically designated for capital projects.
Donors may designate Saint John the Baptist Middle School for part of their annual United Way pledge. Note our number 374686 on the pledge form.
