In response to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis and due to the increase in Covid cases across the state, ever changing mandates, and the uncertainty of what the next couple of weeks will reveal, the Celebration of Faith Committee has decided to cancel our in-person events originally scheduled for later this month.
As much as we were looking forward to celebrating with you in person, your safety is our priority. We hope that you will still consider making a gift to support the Foundation. The needs of our school and parish communities are increasing and becoming more complex. Many are in desperate need of additional support to combat the strain of Covid-19 on their communities. This year our goal is to again raise at least $325,000 to support our Tuition Assistance Program, college scholarships, FORMED, Parish Religious Education and our new Digital Learning Fund. With support from donors like you, we can achieve this goal!
More than ever, Catholic education in our Diocese is in dire need of supporters like you. Every gift matters. During this unpredictable time, we are inviting you to join us in supporting Catholic education with a generous heart to support those students, families, parishes, and schools that need us the most.
Your gift impacts students in all six of our Catholic elementary schools, two high schools, and religious education programs at all the Parishes in the Diocese of Yakima.
A gift of $10,000 will fully fund our Digital Learning Grant Program for 2022-2023.
A gift of $5,000 will fully fund FORMED.org that provides thousands of videos, programs, books, and other resources for use in our Parishes, schools, and other ministries.
A gift of $3,000 will fully fund one Celebration of Faith College Scholarship for a deserving student.
A gift of $1,200 will fully fund one Tuition Assistance Program grant for one of our neediest students. That is only $100 a month!
A gift of $750 will fully fund one Catechist Religious Education Training.
A gift of $500 will fully fund one Religious Education Director Stipend.
All gifts matter, regardless of the amount. Giving to the Celebration of Faith Campaign is easy too! You can make a one-time gift or reoccurring payments online, mail a check, or by phone.
