Dear Corpus Christi Catholic School parents and friends,
The Archdiocese of Mobile has joined with arch/dioceses throughout the country to participate in the fourth-annual #iGiveCatholic Giving Day.
We will celebrate this day of Catholic giving on Tuesday, November 27, 2018, also known as #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, #GivingTuesday is a day when individuals around the world come together with the goal to celebrate generosity and to give to the charities of their choice.
Corpus Christi Catholic School believes in the generosity of Catholics in our archdiocese, and we are excited to be participating in this event.
In 2017, the third year of the campaign raised more than $3.6 million for 600+ participating parishes, schools, and nonprofits representing 17 arch/dioceses across the country.
We wish to do our part to raise money for our school while joining Catholics throughout the country in the call to share our blessings with the Church and those the Church helps and supports in our communities.
For many years, we maintained our tuition rates at the lowest level we could, while still providing a quality education for our students. We are blessed to have an enrollment of nearly 500 students and facilities that can accommodate our students. Furthermore, we work to provide and to utilize current technology in everything that we do. However, the costs associated with educating our students, investing in technology, and maintaining our facilities are substantial.
The purpose of this campaign is to allow us to continue to provide high quality education and create a buffer in the school’s coffers
The money raised during the #iGiveCatholic campaign will be used to support the school’s annual fund.
Specific allocations for the funds raised during #GivingTuesday, include purchasing additional iPads and facility upgrades for the school.
How does this all work?
#iGiveCatholic is an online platform for all participating parishes, schools, and ministries who are part of the campaign. All donations will be processed through the website
. Anyone can donate on Tuesday, November 27th, from midnight until 11:59 pm. We have established gift categories for anyone making a donation tomorrow. Please see below for more information.
Thank you in advance for your generosity!
