What is Roanoke Valley Gives Day?
It’s a 24-hour online fundraising competition between the region’s leading nonprofits in which the Foundation for Roanoke Valley awards grants of $10,000 (1st place), $5,000 (2nd) and $2,500 (3rd) to the nonprofits that either raise the most money and/or attract the most individual donors.
Last year, Roanoke Catholic earned 2nd place in both categories ($38,200 and 315 donors), earning a bonus $10,000!
Charitable contributions cover 25% of the average cost of educating a child at Roanoke Catholic (see chart below), and help support the more than 50% of our students who rely on tuition assistance to afford a Roanoke Catholic education.
We are “Catholic” not only in our faith but in the word’s original sense — “universal” or open to all families who aspire to our standards of academic excellence, familial values, and faith in the Gospel.
