Girls’ schools unite to raise funds

Record Staff Report

The four all-girl Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese of Louisville have teamed up for the fourth time on a joint alumnae fundraising challenge called #RivalsUnite4Girls.

Assumption High School, Mercy Academy, Presentation Academy and Sacred Heart Academy have jointly called on their alumnae to give back to their schools this month.

The challenge will begin March 18 and will conclude March 21 at midnight. During this time frame, alumnae of each school are encouraged to financially support their school’s annual fund.

The annual fund supports the operational budget and tuition assistance. It bridges the gap between the amount charged for tuition and the actual cost of educating a student, according to an announcement about the effort.

The school with the highest percentage of alumnae participation at the end of the challenge will be awarded a “Golden Piggy Bank” and will win bragging rights. Last year, the challenge raised close to $243,000 with more than 3,000 alumnae participating.
