2020 Annual Fundraising Campaign
There is no doubt that the affects of COVID-19 have hit our school and families large and wide. Currently, our enrollment is down about 10%. We are no longer able to host our in-person Gala which not only raises vital funds for our school but brings about a sense of community and fun for all those who attend and volunteer.
We have had to put on a different lens and re-imagine what fundraising will look like for us going forward, and we hope you will support us in making a difference in the lives of these students and families at St. Mary Cathedral School.
Typically, our annual fundraiser, The Gala, raises an average of $90,000 in restricted and unrestricted gifts. Because we are not able to have this very important in-person fundraiser, there is a significant void in our annual budget. The unrestricted funds help pay for things like utilities, computers, library supplies, maintenance needs and much more, which are essential to the operations of our school. The restricted funds are raised for the greatest area of needs for our school each year. This year, our goal relates to three major focus areas: Cafeteria Project, Attracting and Maintaining Quality Staff, and Maintaining Operations. Check out the Case for Support below to dive deeper into our needs!
Thank you to our generous supporters!
We are SO thankful for all of our generous donors who have already committed to supporting St. Mary Cathedral School for 2020-2021. You too can join in and help us close out our fundraising campaign!
We are hopeful that we can have a celebratory evening in the spring with games, raffles, prizes, auction items and much more!
