Helias Foundation Annual Fund Drive

The efforts of the Helias Foundation are crucial to the success and future of Helias Catholic High School. As the school concludes a major capital campaign -- a portion of which is designated to bolster the foundation's endowment -- it is all the more important to continue supporting the ongoing work of the Annual Fund Drive. Although separate from the capital campaign, gifts received through the Annual Fund Drive will further strengthen the endowed funds of the foundation, thus ensuring that the recently announced tuition rate reduction at Helias is viable for the long term. In other words, your support of the Annual Fund Drive will help not only today's students, but young people for generations to come!

The class with the highest percentage of participation will earn distinction as Helias Class of the Year. This class will earn bragging rights as the Best of the Best for one calendar year: highlighted in the Foundation Winter Newsletter, featured on the Foundation website, and will have the option to have a float in the Homecoming Parade!

Jim Rackers Award*

The class that generates the highest total revenue will earn this honor, and will also be listed in the Foundation newsletter, featured in the E-Sader and on the Foundation website.

*For the purpose of the Class of the Year challenge, married alumni can be credited for participation in both respective classes. For the Jim Rackers challenge, donation amounts can be split 50/50 or can all be credited to one spouse. Please specify this information with your donation.

You can see the 5 classes with the highest amount of donations at the right of the home page. For a complete list of all classes, click Annual Fund Drive, Running Totals to see how donations are shaping up throughout the drive.

Care to make your donation now? You can use the return envelope from any recent newsletter, or click Donate Online at the right to pay with credit or debit card. You will have peace of mind that you have done your part to help your class (and in knowing that you won't be called and solicited for a donation by a classmate in the near future)!

Remember no donation is too small; your gift will make a difference for the Helias Foundation. Additionally, you will know that you have done your part to help your class win one of the Class Challenges.
