Notes from Louanne

As we kick off the 2015 Annual Fund Drive, I want to thank everyone who participated in and helped with the Tiger Trail Walk/Run at St Joseph Elementary and Middle Schools last week. You raised over $1,000 for tuition assistance. Let’s keep the momentum going to reach our 2015 Annual Fund Drive goal of $260,000. With your generosity, the Foundation is providing over $400,000 to BCACS this school year.

To donate through your employer’s United Way campaign, just write in Battle Creek Area Catholic Schools Foundation on your United Way pledge card.

To donate through your employer’s Combine Federal Campaign (CFC) use code 80586 for Battle Creek Area Catholic Schools.

Thank you for “Investing in our students today for a brighter tomorrow!” For more information contact, Louanne McIntyre at (269) 963-4771 or
