Pride In Our Past…Faith In Our Future Capital Campaign
Help us raise $10,540.70 by March 31!
As you have heard over the past year, Pacelli Catholic Schools has undertaken the momentous endeavor of a capital campaign. The goals of our Pride In Our Past…Faith In Our Future Capital Campaign were twofold – to upgrade our facilities to allow for greater enrollment and increasing our efficiencies and, most importantly, to significantly increase teacher salaries as a matter of both economics and justice.
The time has come for us to conclude our formal, yearlong solicitation process. We are reaching out to you one last time to provide you with an opportunity to truly make a difference in our community by joining us and so many others in supporting this historic campaign.
Thanks to the sacrifices of our nearly 700 donors, we are happy to announce that we have surpassed our initial $2 million Celebration Goal and our second $2.5 million Challenge Goal with a current total of over $2.84 million. But we need your continued help as we look to hit yet another milestone.
Thanks to the generosity of one of our donors, we are able to offer a matching gift challenge in which the donor will match 50 cents on every dollar up to $1 million raised. As you can see on the thermometer to the right, you’ve helped us raised $989,459.30 towards that challenge – a great feat!
We’re looking to wrap up our solicitation process by March 31, but we can’t leave any money on the table. That means we need your help to raise $10,540.70 in the next 15 days or we won’t get a single penny of this matching gift challenge.
Making your gift now will not only help us meet this tremendous challenge, but it will ensure the maximum, lasting impact of your gift as it will be increased by 50%! Will you join us by making a gift to help us raise $10,540.70 by March 31?
To those who have made a multi-year pledge, thank you for leading the way. To those who have made a one-time gift, would you consider a second donation today? To those who have yet to make a gift, would you prayerfully consider supporting our campaign? Every dollar matters as we try to meet this incredible challenge opportunity.
Your sacrificial gift, in any amount, will truly become part of the lasting legacy that is Pacelli Catholic Schools by ensuring that Catholic schools will be strong for years to come, educating our children to be leaders in our world and in our church.
