    December 5, 2017 A.D. 

    Dear St. Peter School Community,

    We would like to offer a heartfelt thanks to all who donated to St. Peter School for #GivingTuesday. We raised over $5,000 this year, thanks to the contributions of school families toward our family goal ($30/family) and also the generous support of various alumni, businesses, and benefactors of the St. Peter School community. We are very grateful. As indicated in our appeal, these funds will go towards the school’s Annual Fund, which is used to supplement our tuition revenue to account for the operating costs of the school. The funds we raised for #GivingTuesday are important step towards attaining our annual fundraising goal.

    Thank you again for all how helped to support us in this endeavor! Please be assured of our continual prayers.

    Dear St. Peter School Community,

    Since 2012, Americans have been celebrating #Giving Tuesday, a day to take a step back from the frenzy of holiday shopping and refocus our resources on charitable giving. Last year alone, Americans gave over $168 million to charities on #Giving Tuesday.

    Given that you might be considering a donation to a charity this year, why not consider a donation to support St. Peter School? While tuition costs to our school can be a real sacrifice for our families, many do not realize that tuition does not cover the full cost of our operating expenses. St. Peter School relies on the support of its local parish (St. Peter) and Diocesan aid, along with critical fundraising efforts, to balance our operating costs. We are asking each family at St. Peter School to consider a small donation of $30/family; but we are also asking members of the wider parish community, and people of goodwill in general to consider any donation that might be deemed appropriate.

    There are many advantages to choosing St. Peter School for your gift this year:

    1. Donations support a local cause; all monies donated stay at St. Peter School and are used exclusively for the operation of the school.
    2. Supporting Catholic education is an absolutely wonderful cause; a tremendous opportunity to give back and support the faith formation of a rising generation.
    3. Donations are tax deductible
    4. You can be part of a national movement in charitable giving

    We are truly grateful for any gift that you might consider making to support our school’s fundraising efforts for the 2017-2018 school year.
