Xavier Day of Giving
Great news! On Monday May 22, with very brief time and effort, YOU have the power to help Xavier raise tens of thousands of dollars. Here’s how you can participate. May 22 is Xavier’s Annual Day of Giving. Our goal is to have 250 donors on that day give to Xavier. If we reach our goal we have the possibility to unlock more than $30,000 in challenge gifts. It doesn’t matter if you can donate $1, $100, $1,000 or more. The goal is to have everyone participate and help our school! Your donation will go to the Xavier Fund which allows our school to provide a higher level education to students from a wide variety of religious, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds in the Coachella Valley. With your help, and all the support from people near and far, the Day of Giving could be a really big day for Xavier!.
How can I participate? On Sunday evening, May 22, we will email you a link from which you can make a secure donation through the non-profit crowdfunding site, Razoo. At that time, you may make a gift of any amount; we only need 250 people to make a donation to trigger the challenged gifts.
Why Razoo? Razoo is a crowdfunding site that can handle a high volume of donations as well as track the number of donations and amount raised. Razoo also makes it easy to share the campaign across multiple social media platforms to maximize visibility and contributions. Though your gift will technically be made to the Razoo Foundation, a donor-advised fund, Xavier is the ultimate recipient of the amounts raised. You will receive a tax receipt from the Razoo Foundation and your gift is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Why May 22? May 22 is the day of Xavier’s Transitions Mass, the day we mark the “changing of the guard.” It’s a day we look forward to the incoming students and the ongoing work of learning. It’s a day that focuses on the third question of the examen: How are we being called to respond now?
What Will the Money Support? Contributions from the Day of Giving will be unrestricted and will support a number of programs and initiatives, for example: scholarship assistance; facility improvements; technology upgrades; professional development and more.
