THANK YOU!  HGP Donor Honor Roll

Holy Ghost Prep wishes to extend heartfelt appreciation to alumni, parents, grandparents, alumni parents, faculty and staff, as well as corporations and foundations – all of whom enabled HGP to raise nearly $400,000 in philanthropic support during the past fiscal year (July 1, 2013 – June 30, 2014).

Gifts, sponsorships and special event revenues from all sources totaled $396,637.58 last year, a slight increase over the previous year ($376,999.06).  Unrestricted support to the Holy Ghost Fund, general scholarship initiatives and net proceeds from special events accounted for nearly 58 percent of the gift total, amounting to approximately $227,000 – most of which was able to be targeted to student scholarships, the School’s greatest fundraising priority.

Among a few of the fundraising highlights:

*The HGP Mothers’ Guild provided $30,000, due in large part to its Holiday Craft Show, in unrestricted support.

*Alumni gifts provided the largest amount among the many HGP constituencies (more than $150,000).

*Parents and Alumni Parents added more than $80,000 in support.
