ST. JOHN’S LUTHERAN
Tuition alone does not completely cover the cost of an SJL education. Therefore, SJL has identified three Fund-a-Need items for the 2017-2018 school year (scroll down for details on each of the Fund-a-Need Project Descriptions). The Fund-A-Need will be open for contributions beginning in November and concluding on March 17th, 2018, at SJL’s Annual Main Event Fundraiser, Shamrock Shindig.
MATCHING GIFT CHALLENGE
All contributions to the Fund-A-Needs will be applied toward our matching gift challenge. SJL’s APT has generously pledged $10,000 as a matching gift. This means every contribution we receive will be matched dollar for dollar, up to the total amount pledged.
FUND-A-NEED PROJECT DESCRIPTIONS
17 years ago, with the help and financial assistance of SJL’s APT, we installed new playgrounds along with a track and athletic field. These facilities have been a tremendous blessing to us over the years, but now need some upgrades to keep them safe and functional.
Replacement of our Basketball Backboards
Our current basketball backboards are aged and weathered and need to be updated.
Cost = $4,500
Rebuilding of our Long Jump Pit
Due to the continued growth of our K-8th Track & Field Program (130 students participated in the 2017 season), our long jump pit is too short to be safely used by many of the long jumpers.
Cost = $10,000
Installation of Two Message Board Signs
These signs would be installed near the campus entrance of the large parking lot and another next to the preschool entrance. These signs would allow SJL to communicate important announcements and reminders for school families to see as they arrive on campus.
Cost = $8,000
HOW TO CONTRIBUTE
Each and every gift is important, regardless of size. Contributions can be made by check, online by credit card or at the Main Event. Contributions are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law and will be acknowledged promptly in writing for tax purposes. St. John’s Lutheran School’s Tax ID number is 94-6001864.
YOUR DONATION MAY BE ELIGIBLE FOR A MATCHING GIFT FROM YOUR EMPLOYER
Did you know that on average, one in ten companies match employee donations? Diageo, Constellation and Cisco Systems are just a few examples of companies that do. Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. By simply completing a matching-gift form from your company, you may be able to double the impact of your donation to SJL.
