Gift of a Lifetime Campaign 2018

The Gift of a Lifetime is OLR’s annual tuition assistance campaign. Two weeks ago, you heard student and/or parent speakers at each of the Masses, sharing their appreciation for your past support.

 

The cumulative annual request each year is approx. $75,000. As you may have seen from the guest speakers, the need varies greatly. We have had students who have suffered traumatic losses in their lives due to death, illness, and/or parental incarceration. We also heard from student speakers who have 3, 5, and 7 siblings attending Catholic schools, making the cost of a Catholic education more than their parents can afford. All of our speakers were greatly appreciative of being able to attend Our Lady of Refuge Catholic School.

 

Your support is truly making a difference in their individual and family life, but it makes us a better community. This year, once again, our annual goal is $100,000. Thank you for your support.

 

Here are the annual parish support numbers:

2012: $71,200 (within 5 months)

2013: $68,640

2014: $102,762

2015: $52,830

2016: $93,868

2017: $41,523
