Year-End Giving
As December 31st approaches, many of you are looking at your charitable giving in terms of tax benefits.  Although York Catholic is a school, it is also a non-profit organization that depends on donations to meet its budgetary needs.  We ask you to consider YC as a charity of choice for your year-end gifts.  We depend on you and your generosity to support the tradition of faith, mind, heart, and family at YC.
The York Catholic Fund supports every student by enriching extra-curricular programs, music and the arts, professional development for teachers, academic program support, athletic programs, technology, special projects, and operating expenditures.
This year, we have a fundraising goal of $300,000 for the York Catholic Fund by June 30, 2018.  Every gift, whatever the amount, counts and is truly valued.
Please use the return envelope that was included in your December issue of Greensleeves or click on the We Believe button below to use our secure online donation page.  Thank you for caring and giving!

Parent Referral Benefits
If you know a friend, family member or anyone looking for a high-quality, Christ-centered education for their children who do not already attend a Catholic school, you could receive a $50 credit toward your child's tuition at York Catholic, with a chance to win a $500 credit.
York Catholic's Parent Referral Program is a win-win for everyone involved. Referred students receive an outstanding education from York Catholic, while parents of the referred families get peace of mind knowing their child is gaining so much more than just a top-notch education.  Families who refer someone who registers at York Catholic receive a $50 credit towards their child's tuition.
You, as parents, are our best ambassadors.   In order for the Parent Referral Program to be a success, we need information about individuals who may be interested in joining the York Catholic family. All you need to do is click here to fill out the form. During the registration process, if you are listed as the referring individual for a friend or other enrolling individual, we will credit your child 's account with $50.  In May, one family who referred someone who enrolled at YC will be randomly selected to win a $500 tuition credit.
It really is that simple. So go ahead. Please click on the link above and allow us the opportunity to do what we love - help to develop, nurture and encourage children so they may grow in faith, mind, and heart. Mail or email the form to us and we will take it from there!
Thank you for all you do for our school!
