WHAT IS MANY GIFTS, ONE NATION?
Twenty years ago, Saint Pope John Paul II said to an audience of Catholic educators in New Orleans: “Yours is a great gift to the Church, a great gift to your nation.” Countless people in our country have been blessed by the many gifts of Catholic schools. However, many adults have lost touch with their local Catholic school community. It is time for those people who have been impacted by your school to reconnect with the community that gave them so much, and give back.
With this recognition in mind, NCEA is pleased to present the online giving campaign: Many Gifts, One Nation: A Day of Giving to Catholic Schools. Make your gift to a Catholic school on January 29-30!
For the 2018 Day of Giving, more than $859,000 was raised from 6,957 donations to 539 schools, six dioceses and NCEA. This is just one example of the strength Catholic schools hold when we work together to promote the faith-filled and academically excellent education we all have at the core of our shared mission.
HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE?
Many Gifts, One Nation is a national campaign focused on giving back locally, similar to Giving Tuesday or Small Business Saturday. Donors will connect directly with your school. This campaign allows everyone who has been impacted by Catholic schools to join together and give back.
Between January 29, 12 PM and January 30, 12 PM, follow the link to our giving page and give back!
Don’t forget to let others know that you participated. Share on your social media networks and challenge your former teachers, classmates and friends to give as well! Remember—Many Gifts, One Nation will only be available for 24 hours. Make sure every gift happens during this time!
