We are happy to report the fourth annual SC Day of Giving was a huge success! This 24-hour fundraising event brought donors, volunteers, and the Skutt Catholic community together around a common cause.
$35,874 was raised from 219 supporters, unlocking two matching gifts – for $25,000 and $2,500 – bringing in $63,374!
Gifts to the day of giving will benefit the SkyHawk Fund, established to provide support for school enhancements and to assist in meeting operating expenses, while keeping tuition costs at a minimum.
This year, the first 100 donors contributing $100 or more received a limited edition SkyHawk Spirit Scarf, created especially for the fourth annual SC Day of Giving.
When we reached $25,000 in donations on the day, an additional $25,000 was unlocked due to an amazing challenge match from one of our supporters. All gifts, all sizes, all day, counted to help us reach this goal!
When 100 alumni donated during the event, a $2,500 gift was unlocked. Reaching 200 alumni gifts, allowed for another $2,500 to be unlocked!
For the second year, our alumni led the charge and inspired their former classmates to join in. Teams were created for each decade of alumni and the graduates from the 2000s came out on top AGAIN.
THE PRIZE FOR THE WINNING DECADE IS…
Alumni donors from the 2000s will each receive a new, GREEN soft-cotton SC alumni t-shirt. The winning decade was determined by the percentage of alumni who give in the decade you graduated Skutt Catholic. The following are examples of this:
