Thank you.

The Cheverus community came together on March 23 to make Cheverus Giving Day 2023 the most successful fundraising event yet! Generous contributions from alumni, parents, grandparents, students, faculty, staff, and friends collectively raised a record total of $205,411 for Cheverus. The community smashed the donor goal of 500 - reaching 703 donors and unlocking a bonus $35,000 challenge along the way. More alumni gave than ever before, reaching 359 donors, 64 of whom made donations for the very first time!

Thank you to the many volunteers and advocates who sponsored $112,475 in challenges and matches. Peer-to-peer fundraising generated nearly 20% of all funds raised on Giving Day. Your unwavering dedication, creativity, and generosity helped turn general school pride into meaningful school support.

The power of this collective action has an immediate impact on the students, faculty and programs at Cheverus. The majority of gifts were directed to The Cheverus Fund which helps the school meet current needs, and benefits each and every student on a daily basis. Gifts of $100 or less accounted for more than $20,476, underscoring the fact that gifts of all sizes make a difference. In fact, GOLD alumni (Classes of 2013-2022) achieved the Alumni Council-sponsored GOLD challenge which unlocked an additional $20,000 for Cheverus. The $177,625 unrestricted dollars raised from Giving Day positions The Cheverus Fund significantly closer to reaching its goal by the close of the fiscal year on June 30, 2023.

Thank you to all of the alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty, staff, and friends who came out to share their support for Cheverus.  We are grateful.
