SJGS topped the leaderboard with the highest number of gifts in the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend, and raised almost $8,000 in the #iGiveCatholic Day of Giving on November 30!

As we closed out November, a month in which our children and families highlighted the virtue of “stewardship,” it was wonderful to see such an outpouring of generosity. SJGS is very blessed…thank you to all of our donors!

If you missed out on Giving Tuesday, it’s not too late to make a gift to the SJGS Excellence Fund. Learn more and give now at  stjosephgradeschool.com/giving. Contributions may also be made anytime via cash or check by mailing or dropping your gift to the Saint Joseph Parish office at 711 E. Colfax Ave., South Bend, IN 46617.

All of the proceeds we collected on our day of giving support the SJGS Excellence Fund, the annual fund that helps our parish school live out its mission of educating hearts and minds in the Holy Cross tradition, making God known, loved, and served.

Gifts will help fund new learning materials, curriculum and program enhancements, faith development and service learning initiatives, enrichment opportunities, and professional development for our teachers — all of the things that have helped our school twice earn National Blue Ribbon status and serve as a model of first-class Catholic education.

Thank you for “Giving Catholic” on Giving Tuesday this year in support of SJGS! If you have any questions about how you can support SJGS, feel free to reach out to Sean Kennedy at skennedy@stjoeparish.com or 574-234-3134, x. 117.
