Day of Giving – Success!

Updated: Feb 7, 2023

Together! We Made a Difference on our Day of Giving

With sincere gratitude, we THANK YOU for giving to St. Martin’s during our 24 Hour Day of Giving. Our combined contribution during this single day of giving amounted to $4,400 to St. Martin’s. Thanks to the generosity from you, and our amazing school community, we can establish the Arlene Patti Memorial Garden, which will be built just outside our main school doors. It will serve as a quiet, reflective place where we can be comforted and inspired. The centerpiece will be a granite bench, engraved with Mrs. Patti’s name and a quote at, the end of a stone path. It will also include shrubs, bushes, and seasonal flowers to celebrate our cherished memories.

We would like to share your impact by the numbers:

  • Your gift matched a $500 matching donation from a school family.

  • Your gift matched at least one $50 matching donation in your child’s classroom from a generous parent. Several grades had multiple matching donors.

  • One hundred & sixty (160) separate donations were made from parents, grandparents, faculty, staff, students, alumni parents, alumni, and parishioners, with an average donation of $25.

  • Third grade had 100% participation. They will celebrate with pizza party for their outstanding effort.

  • Every student who donated $1 received a Tag Day for Wednesday, Feb. 8 as a thank you. Every student who donated $5 received a pair of Crusader inspired red sunglasses as a thank you.

Again, thank you for all you do in support of St. Martin’s and Catholic school education.
