$50,000 Matching Fund Campaign Launches to Support St. Ignatius Catholic School Annual Appeal
September 29, 2022
St. Ignatius Catholic School diligently works to prepare students for lifelong excellence by helping them identify, develop, and share their God-given talents and gifts. By focusing on the values of our Catholic faith, we empower our students to discover their vocation, have success in their future education, be faithful Catholic citizens of our society and world, and live out their highest calling—union with God.
As in most Catholic schools, tuition and parish support cover only a portion of the overall cost of educating each student in Catholic classical curriculum. The St. Ignatius Catholic School Annual Appeal helps decrease the gap between the actual cost of education per student and the amount covered by tuition and the Kaukauna Catholic Parishes subsidy. The generosity of many will help the school reach the 2022-23 school year’s $500,000 goal.
$50,000 Matching Fund Campaign
Many people believe in the value of a Catholic classical education. Don “Bert” Tennessen is one of those people, and he recently proved that by pledging $50,000 of matching funds to St. Ignatius Catholic School, in his wife’s memory. Bert and his wife, Mary, were married for 52 years until she passed away in 2015.
In support of Catholic classical education in the Fox Valley, Bert will match donations to St. Ignatius, dollar-for-dollar, until the end of October 2022, up to $50,000. Donations will go toward the Needs Fund. Unrestricted gifts to the Needs Fund go to work immediately to enhance the learning experience for students and staff, help keep tuition affordable, and advance our mission. As in most Catholic schools, tuition and parish support cover only a portion of the overall cost of educating each student in Catholic classical curriculum.
