The generosity from parents, grandparents, staff, alumni and friends of St. Leo Catholic School help the school continue to grow each year. Though the many donations to the school, we have been able to offer tuition assistance, purchase new student laptops, update technology and security and improve the school grounds. As St. Leo Catholic School enters it's 70th year in 2023, we hope to continue to grow and evolve as a leading pre-k through 8th grade school in the area.
Below are some of the different areas to donate.
- The Lion's Share Campaign
- The St. Leo Catholic School Parent / Teacher Organization
- The Sister Emma Yondura Endowment Fund
The Sister Emma Yondura Endowment Fund
For over twenty-five years, Sister Emma Yondura, S.S.J., has been an integral part of the fabric of St. Leo Catholic School -- as a beloved first grade teacher, as the school's facilitator of Catholic identity, and as our after school care leader. First-graders have been Sister’s love since she began as a teacher in the Diocese of Charlotte in 1970, and her students have learned from her how to do their very best, as God has called them to do.
The Sister Emma Yondura Endowment Fund is being established to honor and commemorate Sister Emma’s inspiring legacy at St. Leo Catholic School. The endowment will enable St. Leo to award a full scholarship annually to a rising first-grader whose family would not be able to afford a St. Leo education otherwise.
Please prayerfully consider a gift to the Sister Emma Yondura Endowment Fund, and help us ensure that Sister Emma’s legacy will endure at St. Leo for generations to come.
