“The Tablet” COVID Relief Fundraiser (March 15 – April 16, 2021)

Dear Academy Families, 

Last week information went home with all children in regard to the “The Tablet” COVID Relief Fundraiser. The Fundraiser takes place between March 15 – April 16, 2021.

The Tablet has organized a subscription drive to help our academy offset the additional cost of COVID compliance. They also wanted to recognize the financial challenges many of our families face as a result of the pandemic.. This campaign will also support The Tablet’s work in reporting important news for Catholics. We believe it’s a win, win, win! You’ll be happy to know that our school can apply all of our students’ sales toward our DeSales Technology Grant requirements. Our participation in the DeSales Technology Grant in the past was one of the main reasons we were able and still are able to provide a device to all students in our school. This was very helpful especially last spring when we had to go to a 100% remote model. We hope that all of our families think to participate in this fundraiser as it helps us keep technology current in our school building. We have asked in the new grant for over 400 devices. 

The program is easy, can be done entirely online, and has great incentives for the schools and students.

Each subscription (new or renewal) helps raise money for an individual student ($10 a subscription after a student sells three subscriptions) and our school ($5 a subscription). Help us reach our goal of 500 subscriptions sold to help us continue to keep our 1:1 I-pad/Chromebook program up to date.

Great Prizes and Rewards for Students & Schools:

The top-selling students in the Diocese will win big prizes. The grand prize is $3,000, the second-place prize is $2,000, and third-place is $1,000. All other students who sell three or more subscriptions earn $10 for each subscription sold up to $500.

How to participate:

While we have included paper subscription slips that will be returned at the end of the program with a check, we are encouraging everyone to take advantage of the ONLINE subscription option.
