St. Junipero Serra Catholic School
Thrives on the Generosity of Our Donors

The Advancement Program works to advance the vision, mission and charism of St. Junipero Serra Catholic School as well as secure St. Serra’s financial future through areas of constituent relations, volunteerism and fundraising.
