Visitation Catholic
STEM ACADEMY

A Diverse & Vibrant Community of Young Learners

Auction

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Visitation Catholic STEM Academy has been a vital part of South Tacoma’s community for the past 94 years.  The diverse student body at Visitation will become our future scholars, engineers, scientists, mathematicians, artists, teachers, and leaders of tomorrow.  We are asking for your support in order to provide expert teaching, excellence in learning, and enriching faith formation.  The funds from our annual auction allow us to offer generous tuition assistance and strengthen our academic programs. 

Our auction builds our community, and to make the auction successful we ask for support from parishioners and the generous Tacoma community, but especially from each school family to support in planning, donating, and attending our Gala.  We are grateful for the generosity and selfless commitment of our chairs past and present.
