BSoR Day of Giving 2021
1,211 Donors - $717,186 Donated

Join us for our 2021 Day of Giving, a 24-Hour event to fund Parater Middle-Class Scholarships for Benedictine and Saint Gertrude. #TwoSchoolsOneGoal

Every gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $125,000 for each school...but it begins with YOU! Your gift will help even more middle-class families send their children to Benedictine and Saint Gertrude.

Last year, Benedictine's Day of Giving provided Parater Scholarships to 16 deserving Cadets of scholarships for the Cadets, we hope to provide those same scholarships for the Gators.

Each gift makes a difference, and we are counting on you. When combined with hundreds of gifts from fellow parents, alumni, and friends, your gift adds up to big support for our schools. Your participation matters! Please give today.

Day of Giving Incentives

  • The donor who generates the most gifts will win a swag bag.
  • The first donor on February 5 with a gift of $500 or more wins a gift card to the Cadet/Gator Shop.
  • Alumni class (from BCP and SGHS) with the most participation wins a tent and tailgate party at homecoming 2021.
  • Alumni class (from BCP and SGHS) with the most dollars raised wins a tent and tailgate party at homecoming 2021.
  • Current class (from BCP and SGHS) with the most participation wins a spirit day.
Because of you... we surpassed our goal!

Your selflessness and generosity have helped us reach 100% of our goal for our first ever combined Parater Day of Giving! Thank you for your support!

It's obvious you aren't horsin' around! We just spelled F-I-F-T-Y for our Day of Giving!

Because of you and your generosity, we have now reached the halfway mark! While we all celebrate reaching F-I-F-T-Y, we hope you will check out the video above of a friendly game of H-O-R-S-E between some students and teachers in the new McMurtrie-Reynolds Pavilion.
