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!
Our alumni led the charge, making up 139 of the 219 event donors, 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 for the second year in a row. Donors from the winning decade received a green, soft-cotton SC alumni t-shirt.
In addition to the alumni challenges and matching gift incentives, there was a promotional giveaway. 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, held on February 1, 2022.
Save the date for the next SC Day of Giving scheduled for January 31, 2023 and look for details and incentives in upcoming communications. Contact Steve Schumacher at email@example.com with any questions.
