Saint Bridget Catholic School 

Annual Appeal 2019-2020

 

2 Corinthians 9:6-8 6Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 7Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

 

Dear Community Members,

I look at all the children coming into this school every morning and I feel so blessed to be a part of Saint Bridget Catholic School in a Christ-centered environment.  I am proud that we are able to offer a rigorous curriculum while simultaneously offering unending opportunities for individual and spiritual growth.  We are also active stewards of our faith throughout our greater community.  Finally, I am proud that we have continued to offer it at a cost much lower than nearby schools.

However, the cost of educating each child continues to rise each year.   Expenses such as teacher salaries, healthcare for employees and building maintenance continue to rise each year.  So, we have two choices; either raise tuition to cover the cost of educating each child or keep tuition low and have faith in our families, community and parish to help us raise enough money to cover the leftover gap between tuition and the cost of each child’s education.

We have faith in our community, so we rely on an Annual Appeal.  If we can continue to cover the costs of educating your children, then we may be able to use additional funding to: replace parts of an aging technological infrastructure, send our teachers to continuing education opportunities to learn new teaching methodologies and techniques, add more advanced safety measures, and enhance the athletic and arts opportunities we are able to offer.

As you can see, our Annual Appeal is nothing short of a necessity.  Our goal for the Annual Appeal is $100,000 this year.  We need EVERY FAMILY to participate at some level and hope you will prayerfully consider what you are able to give.  We understand every family is different, yet we would consider it a great success if all of our families gave something at the level they are comfortable. Your participation can be $5, or $10 or $5,000 or $10,000.

Please see the chart below which represents the breakout of our annual revenue resources.  If we can exceed our goal, and not have any emergency building related costs this year, we can put additional funds in investments. This will provide us a more reliable funding stream we can depend on in the future.

Please take a moment and fill out the enclosed reply card and mail it in to give today or use the enclosed envelope and send it in with your child to give to their teacher.  Or you are welcome to give online at https://saintbridgetschool.factsmgtadmin.com/give/ .  Just input the amount you are giving and select Annual Appeal 2019-2020 in the drop-down menu.

Thank you for your kindness and generosity and know you are one of the reasons our school is able to live up to its full potential for your children.  Your contribution to our Annual Appeal will enable us to carry on our traditions and continue a legacy for generations to come.  May God Bless you and those you love.

George F. Sadler, Principal
