Donations are accepted all year to support the Mission of St. Michael’s Catholic School – “To shape disciples of Jesus by igniting the spiritual, academic, and social growth within each child.”
We are excited to announce that we have received a matching grant of $10,000 from the Richard Schulze Family Foundation to help us meet some of the challenges posed by the COVID 19 pandemic. This will include the hiring of a classroom aide to help us keep groups small to support our students’ learning and help with social distancing; increasing enrollment marketing and communications to ensure sustainability through uncertain economic times; and we will dedicate $10,000 to tuition assistance for members of the St. Michael family who have been adversely affected by the economic downturn. This is an all or nothing matching grant, so we need to raise $10,000 in our own community in order to receive the grant.
But wait… there is more!… The Harper Family Foundation has come forward to offer another challenge. They will also match what we raise up to $10,000! So now any amount you give will be TRIPLED! This is such a great opportunity for St. Michael and it comes at a time when we are incurring extra expenses as we prepare to return in the fall.
Please make a donation if you are able, every little bit helps us meet our goal. The deadline to reach our $10,000 goal is August 31, 2020.
Gifts to the school’s general fund support the purchase of academic materials for our students, ensure that we offer competitive salaries to our staff, and enable us to keep tuition at an affordable cost to our families. Thank you for considering a gift to the School’s General Fund.
Preserve the legacy of St. Michael Catholic School by donating to the Endowment Fund. Donations to the Endowment grow annually. Typically, a small percentage of the income from the Endowment Fund is used annually to support the general mission of the school, depending on each year’s need. We presently have over $300,000 in our Endowment Fund and look to grow this to $500,000 over the next five years.
Each year the request for tuition support increase. Your gift of tuition assistance allow us to support the needs of St. Michael’s families directly. Typically, we give more than $40,000 in financial assistance, annually. Thank you for supporting a family in need.
