Cheverus Giving Day 2022

Thank you to our incredible community for supporting the school on Cheverus Giving Day!

This year, a record 539 donors raised $142,171, demonstrating a shared commitment to every student, teacher, and program at Cheverus. To see how your class fared, visit the leaderboard here.

Gifts support our Jesuit and Catholic tradition, academic excellence, financial aid, athletics, activities, social justice and service, our beautiful campus, lifelong friendships, a strong alumni network, and so much more. 

Thank you, alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty, staff, and friends.  We are grateful.

It's not too late!

If you missed Cheverus Giving Day but would like to make a gift, there is still time!  Cheverus' fiscal year ends on June 30, 2022.  The school would be thrilled to have your support. 

Giving Day FAQ

Yes, of course!  We'll be "counting" any gifts we receive in the mail toward our Giving Day goal.  Click here to see all the ways to give to Cheverus. Don't hesitate to call Elizabeth Woodcock at (207) 774-6238 ext. 183 if you have questions.

THANK YOU! Every gift, every day of the year supports our students and programs. 

We are not retroactively counting gifts that were made before February 19, 2022 but you can help by spreading the word and sharing the Cheverus Giving Day link with your Cheverus friends and family and on social media.  If you want to be counted in the challenges or on the platform, you could consider making another small token gift to Cheverus. 

Know that we are grateful for your support any day of the year!

Gifts to any program area or scholarship will count on Cheverus Giving Day! When you make your gift online, indicate your gift designation by selecting "other" and writing in the name of a scholarship or other area of support.  

The generous donors behind the $55,000 "Double Your Impact Match" have chosen to support The Cheverus Fund (greatest need). That means all matching dollars are going to The Cheverus Fund, regardless of the gift designation a donor chooses for their own gift.

The same is true for the "GOLD Challenge" and most other matches and challenges.

Excellent question.  Here are a few reasons:

  • Small gifts add up quickly.  Collectively, we can do more for Cheverus.
  • Alumni participation creates a broad and diverse base of support for the school.
  • Consistent giving by alumni (even at modest levels) in the years immediately following their graduation increases the likelihood that they will become major donors later in life.
  • High levels of participation can inspire major donors, corporations, and foundations to increase their own support. People and organizations want to invest in successful institutions that others are supporting too!

Though Giving Day is over, the school's fiscal year doesn't end until June 30, 2022.  If you have yet to make a gift to The Cheverus Fund this year, we'd be thrilled to have your support.  Click here to give online. Thank you!
