Skutt Catholic’s SC Day of Giving 2023 is set for Tuesday, January 31. Held each year during Catholic Schools Week, the SC Day of Giving is a 24-hour fundraising event that brings donors, alumni, volunteers, and the Skutt Catholic community together around a common cause, with proceeds benefiting the SkyHawk Fund.
Skutt Catholic established the SkyHawk Fund to provide support for school enhancements and to assist in meeting operating expenses while keeping tuition costs at a minimum. In addition, the SkyHawk Fund contributes to the school’s ability to offer financial assistance to families who would not otherwise be able to choose a Skutt Catholic education for their children.
Last year, $35,874 was raised from 219 supporters, unlocking two matching gifts – for $25,000 and $2,500 – bringing in $63,374!
POWERED BY BURGER DETOUR
If we reach $25,000 in donations on the day, an additional $25,000 will be unlocked due to an amazing challenge match from Burger Detour, coming soon to the Omaha area. All gifts, all sizes, all day – will count!
The first 100 donors contributing $100 or more will receive a limited edition SkyHawk Lunch Cooler, created especially for the fourth annual SC Day of Giving.
Last year, our alumni led the charge, making up 139 of the 219 event donors, and inspired their former classmates to join in. Teams are created for each decade of alumni and the graduates from the 2000s came out on top for the second year in a row.
All alumni from the winning decade who give $35 or more will receive a white Skutt Catholic alumni t-shirt to wear with pride! Just remember, EVERYONE WINS when you support Skutt Catholic! The winning decade will be determined by the percentage of alumni who give in the decade you graduated Skutt Catholic. The following are examples of this:
THE PRIZE FOR THE WINNING DECADE IS A WHITE ALUMNI T-SHIRT!
CHOOSE A ONE-TIME GIFT OR EXPAND YOUR GIVING BY SETTING UP A MONTHLY OR QUARTERLY DONATION.

SC Day of Giving is a 24-hour giving event to support Skutt Catholic High School.This event is open to all SkyHawk supporters – current parents, faculty and staff, parents of alumni, alumni and all friends and fans of Skutt Catholic. SC Day of Giving is run on our love for Skutt Catholic, social media and YOU. Please take this opportunity to support Skutt Catholic and share what Skutt Catholic means to you.
The SC Day of Giving will take place from midnight to midnight on January 31, 2023. The SC Day of Giving is held during Catholic Schools Week because it’s a great way to celebrate our amazing Catholic school! We can’t wait to “see you” on our Givebutter page on January 31!
So glad you asked! YES! If we reach $25,000 in donations on the day, an additional $25,000 will be unlocked due to an amazing challenge match from Burger Detour, coming soon to the Omaha area. All gifts, all sizes, all day – will count!
We think a little competition makes things more fun. The Decades Challenge is a contest between each decade of SkyHawk alumni. Donations will be tallied, and the decade with the highest percentage of alumni donors (not the highest dollar amount) will win new Skutt Catholic alumni t-shirts and bragging rights!
We ask all Skutt Catholic alumni, near and far, to participate in the event. We understand that our SkyHawk alumni are at different stages in life with varying financial commitments. We would just love to see your support. If you can only make a gift of $10 – that’s OK. Just show up and show your love for Skutt Catholic!
