Building Our FutureRegis St. Mary Foundation Capital Campaign
The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic is teaching our society to care for each other more so than any other single event in our lifetimes. At the same time, it has disrupted our lives and communities like no other and challenged us to respond to adversity as we pivot to what is becoming a new normal.
Clearly, the entire Regis St. Mary Catholic School community has felt the impact from complete closure of facilities last spring. We have gone without teaching in the classrooms. Sports and performing arts shut down. New teaching and learning strategies were implemented. Even the Building Our Future Capital Campaign went from the preparation phase to a temporary suspension.
After a four-month postponement, leadership has decided that it is in the best interest of the school, both short-term and long-term, to re-launch the campaign. Our needs are too great not to act now.
We believe the case for your support is strong. What we do now will position Regis St. Mary for immediate success as well as long-term sustainability. We need to:
- Replace aging infrastructure that cannot be further delayed
- Add support for our educational programs
- Secure funding for added tuition assistance
For this effort to succeed, we need the help of many. We need support at all giving levels. We are appealing to current and past families, alumni, grandparents, businesses, foundations, and friends throughout the local Catholic community. Like benefactors of the past, we ask that you join us and make a commitment commensurate with the importance of this campaign. Our hope is that we will exceed our goals if our community responds with a sacrificial commitment over a three-year pledge period.
“This campaign must be successful because it will provide for many critical needs. It is time for each of us to step up like those before us to ensure a strong learning environment for the next generation.”
Troy Gaul, Campaign Co-chair
“The entire faculty and staff are so proud of the Class of 2020. Their tremendous discipline and creativity resulted in one hundred percent of them being accepted by the college of their choice. Congratulations!”
Candi Hedrick, Principal / Campaign Co-chair
“A Regis St. Mary education is a great value. Unlike most private schools, no extra fees are charged for Chromebooks or activities, including athletics. And with college credit courses offered at no cost, families can save at least $5,000 in future college tuition.”
Amy Vetter, Campaign Co-chair
“The young men and women who graduate from Regis today are the business and community leaders of tomorrow. Investing in their future makes a stronger future for all of us.”
Juli Bochsler, Campaign Co-chair
