Nativity Prep’s Annual Appeal is a large piece of our Annual Fund Drive which supports everything that we do at Nativity.  Each and every year, our Annual Fund begins at zero.  We have no regular source of funding year to year.  Our goal for 2015 is to raise $950,000.  The major source of our funding comes from community members like you, who continue to believe in our mission of “breaking the cycle of crime and poverty through education”.  Other sources of support include corporations and foundations.  It is because of your generosity that we are able to continue the successful mission that was started here at Nativity 10 years ago.  We hope that we can count on that support once again.  Please consider making an annual gift to Nativity.

Annual Fund Targets

Income from our Annual Appeal helps underwrite the following areas of our program.  Please help us reach our Annual Fund goal.


Because we are a tuition-free school, every student at Nativity needs scholarship funding.  The levels of scholarship support range from a Partner Scholarship ($5,000) to a Panorama Scholarship ($18,000).  Donations under $5,000 can also be applied to the scholarship fund.   Raymundo Escobar
