Saint Philip Neri Catholic School is blessed to have the support of a charitable and generous community. Tuition fees alone do not cover all operating expenses and we look to this community throughout the year for additional financial assistance. While our mission is to keep our tuition low, our challenge is to provide financial funding for all of our academic programs and raise unrestricted funds to improve our school and enhance the student experience. Fundraising also provides discretionary resources to the principal and teachers to respond to unforeseen opportunities and needs. It is because of the generous participation of the SPN community in the giving programs below that we are able to continue to offer the distinctive educational experiences and help to make our school accessible to a broad range of students.

Saint Philip Neri Catholic School qualifies as a charitable organization and meets the requirements of Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3). Saint Philip Neri Catholic School’s tax ID# is 94-1535363.

Please contact our Principal at (510) 521-0787 if you have any questions about supporting SPN.

Annual Fund

The Annual Fund is the cornerstone of philanthropic support at Saint Philip Neri School and directly supports our students, academic programs, and faculty. It is the most direct way to make a positive impact on the educational experience for our students. Your gift goes to work immediately to help provide purchases for our science and math departments, resources for language arts and library studies, physical education and music classes, and more.

Annual Auction

Our Annual Auction, formerly known as The Crab Feed, typically takes place in February or March and is the main fundraiser of the year. Proceeds go to reducing the gap between tuition fees and actual costs for educating a student. Special projects, such as The Makers’ Space, are funded with a Raise-the-Paddle bid. Equally important to the funds raised, the parents, staff and friends of SPN have a lot of fun celebrating while enjoying great food, drinks and dancing. This event is not to be missed.
