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.
Join our mission of educating the whole person, blending learning with faith and faith with daily life.
