The Saint George Fund
Saint George School was established in 1944 under the leadership of Monsignor W. Lawrence Franklin, with support from the Sisters of Mercy. Saint George is a preeminent elementary school based in traditional values and dedication to educating children in the faith of Jesus Christ. For the past sixty-five years, and more than ever today, Saint George School has been a trusted educational institution within our Diocese and the entire Erie community.
Saint George School shares a special relationship with Saint George Church. We have always been grateful for our faithful parishioners and their continuing generosity and support. We also are blessed with an exceptionally effectual and dedicated faculty who inspire and help develop our children in mind and spirit.
Our current success would not be possible without our countless supporters. Moreover, we recognize and thank all those who have given of their time, talents, and treasure to Saint George. Together, we have established an institution that develops and prepares students to become tomorrow’s leaders and to grow and flourish to their highest potential; we are partners in mission.
To continue our mission and tradition of educating children in the Catholic faith to the highest educational standards, we respectfully request financial support from our alumni, parents, grandparents, parents of alumni, and friends. Your support ensures that children will continue to have the opportunity to experience a Saint George School education for generations to come.
Please consider making a gift to Saint George through The Saint George Fund, the Endowment Fund, a Bequest, or a Planned Gift, each of which is explained further on our website. Additional information about supporting Saint George School can be obtained by contacting Elizabeth Fehr, Director of Advancement, at 814-864-4821 x 277.
Every gift makes a lasting impact on the lives of our students and the communities in which they live. On behalf of our students, we thank you for your support. Your support will make a difference.
