EVENTS & GIVING

At St. John XXIII Catholic School (SJ23), we are blessed to be able to offer many student, family, and parent enrichment programs that contribute to the ongoing social, academic, and emotional success of our students. This is possible because of our amazing network of parents and our committed local and parish communities—see our Honor Roll of Donors. Direct giving, effective fundraising and dedicated volunteers enable us to expand and improve programs that are the heart and soul of our school community.

With this in mind, we ask our alumni, current parents, grandparents, alumni families, parishioners, and community partners to help us to continue to provide exceptional education and service opportunities for students—which are so vital to the quality of education at SJ23. You can be part of this by making a gift, supporting our fundraising events or volunteering your time. Thank you for investing in the future of Catholic education in our community!

Company Match

Many companies offer a corporate gift-matching program or community support program as a benefit for employees. Your company may match your gift to SJ23 dollar for dollar or match your gift up to a certain dollar amount. It may also make a cash donation for employee community service hours. Be sure to see if your company offers these types of programs so that you may maximize your gift and service.
