“But you shall freely open your hand to him, and shall generously lend him sufficient for his need in whatever he lacks.” -Deuteronomy 15:8
Dear Friends of St. Joseph,
At St. Joseph Catholic School, our students have been very busy growing and learning academically, and more importantly, growing in their religious faith through the love and generosity of Jesus Christ.
Our 2016-2017 Annual Fund Drive is in full swing, and we are making great progress toward our goals- not only our fundraising goal, but our goal of 100% faculty, parent, alumni and parishioner support. Some of the funds raised have already been utilized to supplement tuition for current families who need assistance in providing their children with a quality Catholic Education. In exchange, these families have pledged their time and talents to the school in many ways.
Your donation to the 2016-2017 Annual Fund will help St. Joseph Catholic School make needed improvements in some of the following areas:
- Technology upgrades and newer educational programs
- Plans for our Kindergarten Village
- Replacing our marquee sign with a digital marquee
- Upgrades to our gym, such as ceiling mounted goals and retractable bleachers
- Additional tuition support for school families
These projects cannot be made possible without your donation to the 2016-2017 Annual Fund. Every donation is 100% tax deductible, and every donation, no matter how large or small, is another step towards our goal- each year, we strive for 100% faculty, parent, alumni and parishioner involvement to achieve our fundraising goal.
At St. Joseph Catholic School, we are thankful for your generosity- Over the past 65 years, each and every student has been the beneficiary of donations from our alumni, school and church parish families. It is through such donations that we have a Middle School Science Lab, newly painted and updated library, newly built gardens, and many other educational materials that benefit our students.
Prayerfully consider a gift to the St. Joseph Catholic School 2016-2017 Annual Fund. Donations can be made by returning this letter to the school office with your donation or by going to e-giving.org/sjs to make a donation online. Please call the school office at 318-865-3585 or e-mail Greg Beauclair, Director of Marketing at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to discuss your donation or Planned Giving.
Thank you for your continued support of St. Joseph Catholic School!
Dr. Judith McGimsey
