In an unbelievable show of support and generosity, our community came together to raise $256,135 during Giving Day 2020. The goal heading into this year’s Giving Day, held Monday, June 8, was $215,000. With a focus on tuition assistance, this lofty goal was set to ensure that 62 students in need received additional financial aid to cover final tuition payments that otherwise would have been a struggle for their families to meet. With each new matching gift, came a wave of dedicated families, friends, and alumni who were ready to beat the challenge! Your support was unwavering throughout the day.
The day was made even more exciting with the online broadcast of our first-ever McQuaid-A-Thon. Hosted by Rebecca Leclair, P ’11, ’15, and streamed live on our Facebook and YouTube channels from 6:30-7:30 p.m., it was an opportunity to highlight many of the achievements throughout the academic year, hear from special guests, and auction off some items that would have been sold at BASH.
June 8 truly was a historic day in the story of McQuaid Jesuit and an embodiment of its spirit of love, generosity, and community. On behalf of the entire community, thank you to everyone who participated in Giving Day!
