Alumni Appeal

2017-2018 St. Joseph and Gehlen Catholic Alumni Appeal

Once again, your gift can make a difference through the St. Joseph & Gehlen Catholic Alumni Appeal. Parish and parental investments do not cover the entire cost of a student’s education. The gap is nearly 19%. 

The St. Joseph & Gehlen Catholic Alumni appeal funds the gap and provide the needed revenues to support the faculty, students, and the mission of Gehlen Catholic – from Transitional Kindergarten Program to 12th grade

Last year gifts ranged from nearly $45,000 to $5. Each and every gift this year is appreciated and is tax-deductible. 

Individuals contributing a gift of $1,000 or more, whether as a one-time gift or over several months, will be recognized on the donor wall.
