THANK YOU!


Current Total: $72,791.00




 

  

We had another successful Xavier Day!  Thank you to the Xavier supporters that participated by wearing Xavier gear, caring by making a donation, and/or shared their Xavier pride through social media using the #XavierDay2018.  We are overwhelmed by the enthusiasm and generosity of the Xavier Catholic Schools community.  Total funds raised continue to pour in and donations are still being accepted.  We look forward to sharing with you very soon, fun data pulled from our 2nd Annual Xavier Day.  No matter what day of the year it is, every day is a great day to be a Hawk!  


W
hat is Xavier Day?  It is the opportunity for our parents, alumni, dedicated faculty and staff, current and future students, friends of the Xavier community, and newest alumni; the Class of 2018 seniors (graduating on Xavier Day) to join us and celebrate the pride you have for Xavier Catholic Schools. 

There are several ways you can participate!

            

Wear your favorite Xavier gear. There are many ways to show your Xavier pride.  Rep your favorite t-shirt, hat, or sweatshirt.  Sip out of your Xavier coffee mug.  Put out the Xavier yard sign.  The possibilities are endless!  Be sure to share what your wear on social media using #XavierDay2018.

Visit one of our campuses between 7:30-9:30 am on Wednesday, May 30th for a free coffee to-go.  The coffee stickers will offer another way to promote Xavier Catholic Schools on Xavier Day.  Those interested can also have their picture taken to share on our social media page.  Computers will be available if someone would like to make a contribution.  Computers are available all day in the Main Office at Xavier High School (7:30 am- 4:00 pm).

Visit with other Xavier supporters for lunch or dinner.  New this year, grab lunch at Bazil's in downtown Appleton starting at 11:00 am.  Bazil's is managed by Xavier alumna Bobbi Jo De Witt Paschke '89.  If you happen to be in the Madison area, visit Karben4 Brewing between 4:00-7:00 pm, owned by Xavier grads Alex Evans '03 and Zak Koga '03.  Each location provides the opportunity for Xavier alumni, parents, and friends to come together, bring friends or make new friends, share their Xavier experiences, win cool Xavier items, snap a few photos to share on social media and enjoy time together.

Care by making a donation to Xavier Catholic Schools Annual Fund, Angel Fund or the Xavier Catholic Schools Foundation.   No gift is too small and every donation plays a vital role in maintaining and improving the excellence of Xavier Catholic Schools, and furthers its position as the area’s most premier Catholic educational experience. 

Your contribution could be eligible for a match by one of our several amazing supporters!  Visit the link at the top of the page or click here to view our current gift match challenges.  You do not have to wait until May 30th to make a donation to Xavier Catholic Schools.  We will gladly accept contributions earlier.  Donations can be made in person or online.  For online gifts, click the icon below to be directed to our donation page.  The page offers descriptions of how your contribution impacts the designation you give to.
