The 2022 Race for Education is now underway with a goal of raising $33,000.
Again this year, our campaign features an online donation platform in which sponsors can donate to students via the website www.race4ed.com/ascs.
Please help spread the word by emailing relatives and friends the link to the donation page and asking them to sponsor your student in the Race for Education. Donors can search for a student by entering the first name and first 2 letters of the last name in the search bar. Each student also has an individual URL that is also shareable – just search for your student, copy the link below their name, and paste into an email or social media message.
One feature of the donation website is that parents will receive an automated email notification every time a contribution is made to their student on the Race site by a donor. In addition, the email message will contain a link to your student’s private donation report which will list all of your student’s sponsors.
For privacy, only a student’s first name and first two letters of last name will display on the Race donation website.
Raised funds will go toward PTO initiatives to benefit our students, faculty and staff. Additionally, 5% of the proceeds will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Through the years, the funds donated to our school by family and friends from around the world have enabled us to purchase:
- ACTIV Boards for every classroom (Pre-K-8th Grade)
- STEM Programs
- Special Faculty Recognitions
- Fine Arts Funding
- Contributions to support specific student learning programs
Thank you to all of our donors for your kindness and generosity. We truly appreciate your support.
What is the Race for Education?
Students from K to 8th grade walked and/or jogged around the designated race-course for forty-five minutes. Each student raised funds by asking sponsors to contribute a donation to All Saints Catholic School. All donations are tax-deductible.
The success of Race for Education relies on the number of sponsors and the amounts they give. Think of relatives, friends, neighbors, business associates, coaches, and anyone else you know who would want to invest in your child’s education. Then email them with a message such as this:
“[Your child’s name] will be walking/jogging during a special fundraising event
at All Saints Catholic School during the week of May 24. Would you be willing
to sponsor [him/her]? Please go to www.race4ed.com/asc to find out more.
Type [your child’s name] in the Search bar to make a donation. Thank you.”
You can also post the website link on Facebook, on Instagram, on Twitter, or even text it to relatives & friends. Traditionally, we can reach our goal if parents contact an average of 15 potential sponsors per child.
