This is an exciting time at Pacelli Catholic Schools as we celebrate our strong past and look forward to our even brighter future. Last summer, we launched a study to gather thoughts and feedback from our parents, alumni, and other community members on the best path for ensuring a successful future for Pacelli Catholic Schools. To those of you that participated, thank you for your thoughtful and meaningful responses. Through that study, we learned of two key areas of importance: 1) the need to enhance our teacher and staff salaries and 2) the importance of renovating and restoring the infrastructure of our schools.
This fall, we launched the silent phase of our Pride in Our Past…Faith in Our Future capital campaign to achieve those two key goals. Through the sacrifices and generosity of many, I’m happy to report that we’ve currently raised over $1.8 million towards our overall goal of $3.2 million.
In the coming weeks, you’ll be receiving more information about our projects and goals, but most importantly, you’ll have the opportunity to make your own sacrificial and meaningful gift to Pacelli Catholic Schools.
We are excited to announce that we have a tremendous challenge opportunity from a very generous donor who will match 50 cents on every dollar up to $1 million. If we’re successful in meeting this challenge, we will have added $1.5 million to our campaign total. This is a great time to make a gift with maximum, lasting impact as it will be increased by 50%.
If you’re looking for additional information before it arrives in the mail, click here to review our campaign case statement or call the central office at 715.341.2445 and we’re happy to answer any questions you might have about the projects or making a gift.
I encourage you to take some time reading through the materials that you’ll receive, and prayerfully consider supporting this crucial campaign to ensure that Pacelli Catholic Schools will continue to remain strong for generations of students to come. Your sacrificial gift, in any amount, will make an important difference in this campaign and will leave a lasting legacy.
Thank you for your consideration of our gift request and may God continue to bless you and your family.
Director of Education
