Day of Giving

 

What is the Day of Giving?
Twenty years ago, Saint Pope John Paul II said to an audience of Catholic educators in New Orleans: “Yours is a great gift to the Church, a great gift to your nation.”

Countless people in our country have been blessed by the many gifts of Catholic schools. However, many adults have lost touch with their local Catholic school community. It is time for those people who have been impacted by your school to reconnect with the community that gave them so much, and give back.

With this recognition in mind, the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) is pleased to present the online giving campaign: Many Gifts, One Nation: A Day of Giving to Catholic Schools.

This is a time for individuals to give back to their local Catholic school. By leveraging social media, this national day of philanthropy and camaraderie will invite all people, across the country, who have been impacted by Catholic school education in ways big and small to financially donate at a local level.

This day is made possible with the generous support of FACTS Management.

The Day of Giving is a 24 hour period beginning on January 30th at 9:00am Eastern, and lasting until January 31st at 9:00am Eastern.  The donation page for Saint Leo the Great School is https://saintleothegreatschoolva.giving.factsmgt.com. Please share this link with family and friends!

BINGO registration is underway!
