We are excited to share some with you some wonderful news regarding our Building on Excellence, Guided by Faith Capital Campaign.
Last week, we received our largest single donation to date – a $750,000 commitment from Ralph and Irma Drees. We are honored that St. Henry’s new auditorium will be named in recognition of Drees Homes. May God bless Mr. and Mrs. Drees for their generous hearts!
With this gift, we are on the cusp of hitting our original $6 million funding goal to build the new Fine Arts addition. And while we’re very excited about all that this new addition will add to our campus, there is still more work to do.
To truly complete our campaign and reach all of our funding objectives, including enhancements to our STEM and Technology programs, we are now working towards raising an additional $1.5 to $2 million in funds above our original goal.
We would love to add you to the growing list of supporters who have so generously given to this transformational project. Please click here for more information or to give your support today. Gifts can be made as one time payments or pledged across as many as five years. There are also a variety of recognition opportunities available for gifts ranging from $1,000 up to $1,000,000.
It is still our goal to break ground on this transformational project by late spring of 2018 and, with the prayers and support of many, we can make this dream a reality.
Please keep all of our Steering Committee members, Building Committee members, and potential donors in your prayers. We pray that God continues to guide us as we strive to make our school a model environment where His love is the driving force of our Catholic education program. May His Holy Spirit inspire us now and for many years to come and may we remain rooted in the mission and purpose of St. Henry District High School.
