Fundraising is an important part of our annual revenue stream and it helps keep tuition affordable. Meeting our 2021-22 fundraising goal of $225,000 will save approximately 15% per student in tuition this year.
We operate in good faith that our goals will be met and we set our tuition with that savings already applied. Therefore, your help and participation becomes essential in order for us to succeed. Lending a hand by leading or working at fundraising events is needed and so is your enthusiastic participation! We will communicate our target goal for each event and keep you informed of our progress throughout the year.
Three key events that help us meet our fundraising goal are the annual Marathon (October), the Catholic Schools Raffle (winter), and Bids for Kids (spring), along with additional fun events. Our marathon is the first fundraising event of the year and comes quickly. Please see the reminder regarding the minimum requirement for every family.
Our Catholic school marathon has been a tradition for over 40 years! It is a fun community event and is one of our simplest fundraisers. As noted on your registration, families are required to meet a monetary goal for our annual Marathon. Many do this with a spirit of friendly competition and work to exceed this requirement.
- The monetary commitment per family is $375 in marathon pledges and is expected to be met by the end of November 2021.
- Most families meet this goal through pledges, some use a company match and others pay it directly with a tax deductible donation.
- Unmet commitments will be invoiced and due upon receipt.
We are in need of a few more members of our leadership team. Please email Danise Dembouski today if you can help in this capacity! It will meet your event requirements! Watch for more marathon details coming your way soon!
