Education Improvement Scholarship Tax Credit

I am writing today in regard to a legislative bill that has been introduced in the State of Virginia and that, if passed, will have a significant negative impact on All Saints Catholic School.

Delegate David Bulova (D-Fairfax Station) has introduced a bill (HB 521) to repeal the Education Improvement Scholarship Tax Credit.  This is a program that provides over $100,000 in scholarships to students at All Saints and more than $2 million to nearly 500 students across our Diocese.

I ask and encourage you to contact your representatives to ask them to oppose HB 521 and to keep the scholarship tax credit in place.

  1. Take ACTION by contacting your legislators by going HERE.
  2. Ask your friends and relatives to help us advocate through the 2020 General Assembly session by joining our action alerts HERE (please register your home address, not your school address).

In advance, thank you for your support of this critically important cause.

Donor Pledges $15,000 in Matching Gift Challenge

It is with great excitement that we share this outstanding news! An anonymous donor has pledged to match contributions made to the All Saints Catholic School Annual Fund up to $15,000 now through January 31, 2020.

This special Matching Gift Challenge means that every contribution made to our Annual Fund will now be matched dollar-for-dollar, making your gift go twice as far. The challenge is scheduled to run from now until January 31—or until $15,000 in matching donations have been reached.

Donations of any amount made by the deadline will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to the aggregate amount of $15,000. A $25 gift becomes $50, $50 becomes $100, $100 becomes $200, $500 becomes $1,000, and so on.

As a reminder, proceeds from our 2019-2020 Annual Fund will support the following:

  • Broadcast Studio
    Funds will be used to add a broadcast studio in the library to produce a student-run morning newscast and special video projects.
  • ActivPanels
    Our original goal was to purchase 2 next-generation ActivPanels to replace older ActivBoards. With this generous Matching Gift, we now have the opportunity to exceed our original goal and purchase ActivPanels for all remaining classrooms waiting to upgrade!!

Double the Impact of your Gift
To participate in the Matching Gift Challenge, please print our Annual Fund brochure and send in your participation form through your child’s teacher or simply make a donation online by clicking the Donate Now link below.

With less than two weeks remaining in 2019, this is a great time to take advantage of potential year-end tax benefits by making your gift by December 31, 2019.
