In 1933, St. Henry High School opened our doors, welcoming the very first members to the Crusader family. Today, 85 years later, we are thankful to count more than 6,000 Crusader alumni as family members. The Crusader spirit is stronger than ever and our future has never looked brighter.
If you’ve visited our campus recently, you’ve certainly noticed that the school’s $7.8 million “Building on Excellence, Guided by Faith” building project is well underway. In fact, you can view progress to date in the timelapse video found at the bottom of this post.
Having reached 85% of our funding goal, we were given permission to break ground on this pivotal project in July of this year. With every scoop of dirt moved, every footer poured, and every block laid, our campus is transformed and our excitement grows. Now, we are working hard to meet our full funding goal so that the full scope of this project can be completed by the start of the 2019-2020 school year. Thanks to a very generous gift from one of our donors, that goal is now well within site…but we need your support.
Between now and December 31, 2018, every gift received, up to $500,000, will be MATCHED DOLLAR-FOR-DOLLAR!
Would you and your family prayerfully consider taking advantage of this generous matching gift opportunity by making a financial commitment to our campaign? With your help, and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we know that we can fully match this donation, reaching our campaign goal during this final push!
While we’d love to meet with each and every family individually, we understand that trying to do so is feasibly impossible. We also know that every family’s giving ability is different. Therefore, we ask that your family, immediate and extended, prayerfully consider supporting this important project at the highest level at which you are comfortable.
Earlier this week, families received information on a $1,000 Seat Naming Opportunity, which included a remittance envelope. When completing the envelope, you can choose to pledge your gift over a period of up to two years. You can also make a one-time online donation via credit card by going to www.shdhs.org/ccgift.
For those looking to give at a higher level, please note that the our Gift Form, available by clicking here, provides you the option of spreading your pledge out over a period of up to five years. With a gift of $10,000 or more, your family or business becomes eligible for recognition within a custom designed mural that will appear in the lobby of our new auditorium. For a complete list of remaining recognition opportunities, please visit www.shdhs.org/giftlevels.
If you have questions that we can help answer or would like to meet in person, we are more than happy to do so. Our Advancement Director, Beckie D. Middendorf, can be reached via email at [email protected] and our Principal, Mr. David M. Otte, can be reached via email at [email protected].
We are deeply grateful for your consideration. St. Henry District High School is, and always will be, a very special place thanks to our loyal Crusader family. #GoCru #CRUstruction #ComingFall2019
