Securing Your Child's Future

Endowment Letter 2016-2017




Text Box: Dear Parent Name:                                       

Faith in the Future is more than just Good Shepherd Catholic School’s motto; it is the cornerstone of our mission statement, our philosophy, and our spirit. We have always had a charitable culture of paying it forward. The Endowment was created to ensure that we are able to continue to educate and nurture children for years to come. 
We know that you give so much in so many ways, but we prayerfully ask you to consider making a financial contribution to the Endowment. Through the generosity of donors like you, we were able to meet our previous ten-year goal of raising $500,000. During the next ten years, we are dedicated to raising another $500,000 to reach $1,000,000.
Your gift to the Endowment is everlasting, as it builds for the future. Each year the Endowment    interest earned is spent on immediate needs of the school including schoolwide improvements,  special projects, and tuition assistance.  The most recent improvements include:
The Good Shepherd statue, which welcomes our families each day.
The much needed shade structure for the picnic tables.
The exciting and very popular intermediate playground.
Future Endowment monies are earmarked to offer tuition assistance, and upgrades to our         technology resources and infrastructure.
We have such Faith in the Future! Please be a part of the Good Shepherd future by giving to the Endowment on November 29, 2016, also known as #GivingTuesday, a global movement dedicated to the power of giving instead of consumerism during the holiday season! You can conveniently   enclose your tax-deductible gift in the envelope provided, or you can make a contribution online through the school website, Please join us as we build toward the future of Good Shepherd!
