Thank you for Being the Spark during this year’s Giving Day!

Challenges & More!

Take a look back at some of the challenges that took place throughout Giving Day! Thanks to all who participated!

  • The Southern Challenge: 9 – 10A.M. For the first challenge of the day, we’re taking a trip down south. We’re calling on all our southern Knights to Be the Spark during this hour of Giving Day!
  • The West Coast Challenge: 11A.M – 12 P.M. It’s about time to head to the West Coast! Our Knights out west may be in a different time zone, but Giving Day is approaching the halfway point! We need our West Coast Knights to Be the Spark this hour!
  • The Midwest Challenge: 1 – 2 P.M. McQuaid just visited America’s Heartland, taking a trip out to see some Knights in Chicago. For this hour of Giving Day, we’re asking you to Be the Spark so that future generations of Knights can continue to Set the World on Fire!
  • The Chick-fil-A Irondequoit 585 Challenge!: 2 – 3P.M. all gifts made from the 585, for $10 or more, will receive a gift card to Chick-fil-A Irondequoit valid for one free meal, courtesy of Lindsay and Bill Kaser, ’02. *You must pick up the card in person at McQuaid Jesuit. Qualifying donors will be contacted directly, following Giving Day.
  • The Faculty Appreciation Hour: Please take this hour to thank the amazing faculty and staff that have devoted their lives to helping form young men at McQuaid Jesuit. If you had a teacher, coach, counselor, or mentor that had a great impact on your life, we ask that you please make a gift in their honor by writing a note in the “in honor of” section of the giving page.
