Saint Columbkille Partnership School is mission-driven and committed to ensuring that a high-quality Catholic education is available to all who seek it. Each year we fundraise close to $700,000 to uphold this mission. Your support is essential. 


The BC Race to Educate is a Boston College-sponsored 5K Run/Walk and Kids Fun Run to benefit Saint Columbkille Partnership School.
BC Race to Educate
The race is held on campus at Boston College, beginning and ending in Alumni Stadium, and features entertainment, food and prizes in all age categories. Join the BC athletes, BC Pep Band and Baldwin the Eagle as we lace up our sneakers to celebrate Saint Cols!

The Annual Fund at Saint Columbkille Partnership School is our top giving priority, because it directly supports our school’s greatest asset - the students. Your support allows our students to receive a transformative education. The Annual Fund makes a difference by:

  • Providing essential funding for nearly half of our students who receive financial aid, which provides transformative opportunities for students of all backgrounds
  • Keeping the cost of tuition reasonable 
  • Strengthening the curriculum, including the STEM, art and music programs
  • Maintaining a bright facility and school grounds
  • Supporting professional development for our teachers
The Peter McLaughlin Endowment Fund for Financial Aid was established in 2018 in honor of Peter McLaughlin, a long-time member and past chair of the STCPS Board of Trustees. This endowment mirrors Peter’s unwavering commitment to making Catholic education accessible to all.
The Parent/Grandparent Fund
Parents and grandparents play an integral role in supporting our school and your financial support is greatly appreciated. Over the years, parents/grandparents have helped to fund capital expenses, programs, and financial aid. Join us in supporting the next generation.

Most companies will provide you with a short form for you to fill out and send to us with your donation. We will do the rest. It's that easy!
