The Kelly Pride Fund is an annual drive designed to involve our entire community in the ministry of Catholic education at Bishop Kelly. By contributing to the Kelly Pride Fund each year, members of our community provide the financial support that helps strengthen our curriculum, campus ministry, activities, and athletics programs. This charitable support directly benefits every student, as these funds are an important component of our school operating budget to help close the gap between tuition and the actual cost to educate every student at Bishop Kelly. Gifts to the Kelly Pride Fund are tax deductible, and qualify for the Idaho Education Tax Credit.
The focus of the annual fund is to involve as many people in our community as possible – parents, grandparents, alumni, alumni parents, aunts/uncles, neighbors, co-workers, friends, and faculty/staff – by inviting them to make their best gift to the Kelly Pride Fund Whether that is a new alum giving their class year of $20.18, or a longtime supporter giving at the $2,000.00 level, every gift to Bishop Kelly makes a BIG difference – especially yours!
So what does your donation mean to Bishop Kelly?
A donation of $84.00 per month ($1,000.00 annually) to Bishop Kelly could provide tuition assistance for a family in-need, 5 football helmets, a cello for the orchestra, or greens fees for the BK golf teams for the year.
A donation of $30.00 per month ($360.00 annually) to Bishop Kelly could provide a new wardrobe for the spring play, a Lacrosse helmet, or help some of our teachers attend valuable technology training.
A donation of $10.00 per month ($120.00 annually) to Bishop Kelly would cover the cost of headgear for 5 wrestlers, supplies for a spiritual class retreat, or six new Catholic Faith textbooks.
Even a one time donation of $10.00, $25.00, or $75.00 provides much needed support for Bishop Kelly!
All gifts to the Kelly Pride Fund are recognized in the annual Roundtable Magazine publication. Additionally, gifts of $1,000 or more annually will be recognized as Knights of the Roundtable at the 2019 Mardi Gras Celebration at Bishop Kelly. Thanks for your investment in Bishop Kelly and your belief in Catholic education.
Matching Gifts occur when participating companies match (sometimes up to four times) the amount of dollars given to BK by their employees and spouses, or retirees. The company matches the gift only after the donor has sent his or her gift to BK along with the company’s matching gift form. These forms can be obtained from the personnel offices of most companies. Check with your personnel office to find out what kind of gifts they match.
