Donor Societies

Donor Societies

Our donor recognition societies celebrate the impact that giving has on the Padua Franciscan High School’s ability to support our students, meet the need for financial aid, enhance academics, and sustain a culture of Holiness and Learning.

The President’s Club recognizes donors whose annual giving is $1,000 or more. Donors at each level are recognized by category in the donor listing in the Fall issue of Paduan Magazine. President’s Club members are also invited to a reception with the President at the start of the school year.
