2020 has been a year filled with unprecedented challenges and changes. Through these difficult times, the Holy Spirit community has worked harder than ever before to ensure that every student receives a superior Catholic education. One of the ways that happens is through tuition assistance.
The Holy Spirit Educational Foundation will be hosting its first ever online auction extending from January 26 through January 30, 2021. This event, normally held in person every two years, is the only coordinated fundraising effort for the Foundation. Funds raised from the auction go directly to support tuition assistance and faith formation tuition, in addition to other Holy Spirit ministries. We invite you to join us for the auction and share in the important work of the Foundation, your participation will help ensure the continued support of families at Holy Spirit, which is important now more than ever before.

Donate a Gift Card
The very popular gift card tree from 2019 is back! Even though we will be holding our auction virtually, we are still raffling off a gift card tree with over $400 worth of gift cards to local and national vendors. We need gift card donations in $25.00 and $50.00 increments. Starting now, the SCRIP program is running a lot of increased rebates for the upcoming holiday season, so you can get a kick back on your donation. We are looking for gift cards to Target, Meijer, Uccellos, Peppino’s, Speedway, Walker Roadhouse, Amazon and Family Fare. Also, for your first donation, you will be entered into the raffle to win the great gift card tree. If you are interested in donating, please send your gift card to the parish office in a sealed envelope labeled, “Auction Gift Card Tree Donation.” In the envelope please include your name, address, phone number or email address and the amount of the gift card.

Please mark your calendars now for January 26-30, 2020. Plan to join us online to bid for some great auction items, help “fund the need” and have a little fun too!
We are still working out the details of our online platform, so please be patient. We will be sure to have all the details on how you can participate as soon as we can.
Holy Spirit Educational Foundation
The Holy Spirit Educational Foundation believes that cost should not prevent anyone from receiving a faith-based education. With the mission to “enhance Catholic education opportunities and help make them more affordable at Holy Spirit Parish,” the Foundation has provided over $2 million in support over the years. That support is directed toward tuition assistance and providing opportunities for both the adults and youth of the parish to participate in a variety of faith formation programs.
2019-2020 Foundation Impact:
- 77 students received over $130,000 in need-based tuition assistance.
- 107 students were able to participate in faith formation.
- The Foundation was able to fund 100% of demonstrated financial need for students and their family.
We’re building something great – be a part of the Foundation!
