#iGiveCatholic Deemed a Success for St. Patrick
St. Patrick Catholic High School participated in Giving Tuesday with the #iGiveCatholic initiative. The annual philanthropic day provided donors the opportunity to forward the cause of Catholic education. The one day campaign gained over $4500 in needs-based tuition assistance as part of the Guardian Angel fund.
Principal, Dr. Matt Buckley, was pleased with the money raised and the 53 individual donors.
“We are incredibly grateful for the support of this year’s #iGiveCatholic day of giving! These monies will assist families in need with tuition assistance for the upcoming school year. I sincerely appreciate the generosity and support of our benefactors and stakeholders as we continue to be good stewards of all gifts to our school.” said Buckley.
Leading the charge for the campaign this year, Director of Advancement, Patrick Miller, was also excited about the day’s results.
Miller said, “We are thrilled to see so much support from our faculty, families, and alumni. They are our champions, and we are grateful for their dedication to St. Patrick. It is because of their love and support that we can continue our long tradition of excellence in Catholic education.”
