Technology Fund: Saint Patrick's participation as part of one of the Drexel System schools requires that students have the newer technology in order to have access to the apps necessary for blended learning. Each year a significant amount of money is budgeted. Gifts to help offset the cost of this technology are greatly appreciated.

Capital Needs/Building Fund: While significant remodeling was done to both the Main and Shea buildings in the summer of 2016 there were several capital needs that were not addressed These needs include: an HVAC System for Shea Building, Water Heater for Shea Building, new lighting in classrooms in Main Building, new window coverings in Main Building and new roof in Main Building.
