Day Of Giving

2019 Day of Giving

 

THANK YOU!

Day of Giving is about the power of the Roman community. By coming together as Cahillites, we demonstrated the collective impact that a day can make. Because of generous donors, like you, we’re able to help our students. Cahillites are amazing!

Although we fell short of our donor goal of 500, by roughly 100 donors, we far exceeded our monetary goals by raising over $41,000!!! The day was a huge success. We had participation obviously from alumni but also faculty, staff, coaches, parents both current and alumni, and much more! Thank you again to everyone for giving and spreading the word about this powerful day! 

We are still crunching all of the numbers, waiting for all checks to come in, and reviewing our donor count before we release the final numbers. By next week we will further break down our day and provide statistics, figures, and fun facts. Also within the next week, we will begin reaching out to and planning our delivery of Roman stair treads and other giveaways from the day.  

Didn’t get a chance to be a part of the day? The adventure never ends, you can show your support now and give anytime to the Roman Fund.
