Giving Back

Giving back at St. Joseph is more that just how you can help support the school. It is also how our students support and give back to the community.

Saint Joseph Mountain View appreciates your gifts!

At SJMV we strive to foster spiritual development, high student achievement, responsibility to self and service to others, ultimately leading students to THRIVE in the world beyond our school doors.

The Development Program is here to support this mission by uniting all of SJMV – our students, faculty, staff, parents, and alumni – to build a community of do-ers and donors who keep us moving forward.

About the Development Program

The Development Program at St. Joseph School was established in 1999. Its primary goal has been to tell the success story of Catholic schools and to raise the awareness of the enormous contributions our school has made to the Mountain View community.

Development is more than raising money for the future of our school. It is about building relationships with people who will share the good news of St. Joseph Mountain View. Based on that definition, every parent, friend, alumni and donor at SJMV is involved in Development.

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational institution.  As a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization; donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Memorial / Tribute Program

A contribution may be made at any time to honor a friend, remember a special occasion, or commemorate the death of a loved one. Donations of $2500.00 or more are recognized with an established and an engraved plaque that is displayed at SJMV.

Matching Gifts

Many companies offer a Matching Gift program to their employees. This program doubles the amount of your donation at no cost to you. Your employer’s Human Resource department can provide you with a Matching Gift form.

St. Joseph Scholarship Fund

Once annually, mission money will be donated to the St. Joseph Scholarship Fund. This money will help many students receive the education they deserve.

Wine Tasting for Tuition Scholarships

Each Spring SJMV hosts a Wine Auction with more than 200 community supporters. The evening is full of wine tasting, food, and live/silent auction. The entire community is given the opportunity to participate in this annual Development event. Monies received from the evening go to the SJMV Tuition Assistance program. You can make a difference by “Giving the gift of a Catholic Education”.
