#Giving Tuesday


Since its inception in 2008, our Endowment has been supported by the BLAST event, the annual Golf Outing, and various donations that have come in. In the absence of the BLAST event we need your help! We are challenged to earn $40,000 in fundraising for the school. Can we do it? Yes, with your help we can! Rather than an event, I suggest a non-event event, starting with Giving Tuesday.

This year, we ask that you help us to attain our goal of $40,000 through the use of #GivingTuesday so that we may continue to secure and protect quality education here at Saint Agnes School for the long term. Your #GivingTuesday contribution will help provide program improvements, teacher incentives, tuition assistance, and the general school fund. For every donation, 60% will be put toward the Saint Agnes School Education Endowment Fund and 40% will be put toward a general school fund. This is the first non-event event will use this school year.

In the past your donations have helped us to bring programs like Beautiful Me and Behold, The Man to Saint Agnes School as well as FAME (Foundation to Achieve Mathematical Excellence). Your past donations have allowed faculty members to attend many and various professional development opportunities; helped us to provide a safe and secure learning environment; allowed us to purchase iPads for the classrooms; provided tuition assistance for families and so much more!

In the spirit of #GivingTuesday, we ask that you give to a school that has touched you so that you can support Saint Agnes School for many generations to come! So, get comfy and start giving anytime between now and the end of the year – #GivingTuesday.

As an added incentive, every $100 donation will be eligible for a chance to win a one week stay at a gorgeous vacation home in Key Largo, Florida. Click here to learn more about this beautiful bay front two-floor condo that sleeps eight.

Thanks for your support in helping me reach this goal of $40,000 along with your friends and family. Please forward this to anyone who might be willing to make a difference.
