Inspire Fund

The Inspire Fund has been spearheaded by a group of grateful parents who would like to recognize our teachers and staff for the amazing job they have done in keeping our students connected and educated during the extraordinary circumstances this year with the on-going Covid-19 pandemic. Teachers and staff have all worked together to ensure the highest measures of safety and care were in place to make certain our schools could remain open for in-person learning the entire year, while also providing an option of synchronous online learning for many of our families.

This is an anonymous and voluntary way for families to give a monetary gift that will be shared among all Regina Catholic Education Center teachers and staff as one-time end of year bonus. Any amount is greatly appreciated and will help to make our staff feel all of our appreciation for their hard work and efforts to go above and beyond.

It is a truly thoughtful opportunity to spread a message of gratitude, support and hope to Regina teachers and staff who continue to Inspire as they educate and support our children. You can give to the Inspire Fund in the following ways:
  • Option 1: Mail your gift to: Regina Foundation/Inspire Fund, 2140 Rochester Avenue, Iowa City IA 52245 - Please make checks payable to the Regina. Foundation and put "Inspire" on the memo line.
  • Option 2: Contribute online by clicking HERE to go to the Regina Foundation website secure online giving page. Fill out the form and select Inspire Fund.
Please make your donation by May 14, 2021.

To finish this school year, the Regina National Honor Society has decided to start a new service project! This is a fundraiser for an organization called Soles4Souls.  It helps people in the US and all around the world have a more stable source to get shoes. Shoes are a necessary need for school, for work, to fight off diseases, etc. There will be a collection box outside of the main office doors where you can drop off gently used or new shoes! We will be collecting until May 21st. If you are able, please take into consideration bringing shoes that are no longer needed so all of us can help those who are less fortunate. Questions can be directed to lynne.zoulek@regina.org.  
Check out their YouTube Channel here!
Thank you for your generosity!
