Giving Tuesday FAQs

When is the Giving Tuesday?


Tuesday, November 27, 2018.

What is the Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday is a 24 hour virtual event that calls all Saint John’s Catholic Prep alumni, faculty, staff, students, parents, grandparents, parents of alumni, and friends to make an online donation to SJCP and spread the word about the day via social media.

How will my donation be used?

You decide! Your gift may be unrestricted, providing SJCP with financial flexibility and stability to address areas of greatest need, or you may designate your gift. Whatever you choose, your gift will have an impact on our students THIS YEAR.

What are the challenge gifts?

Challenges were designed so that your gift to SJCP on Giving Tuesday can unlock even more money for our school. We have had generous donors and companies agree to pose challenges in order to raise more money and increase our participation rate on this day of giving.

For example, Wishes Family Travel-Maggie Ballantyne will donate $250 on Giving Tuesday if 25 faculty and staff members make donations. When 25 faculty and staff members make donations of ANY amount, the Wishes Family Travel- Maggie Ballantyne donation will be unlocked and added to the total.

I can't afford to make a large gift. Will my donation really make a difference?

Yes! Gifts of all sizes (even $10!) will make a difference. In the fiscal year 2017-18,  over $22,000 was raised from gifts of less than $250. Your donation can also unlock more money through our challenge gifts. Every gift improves SJCP’s donor participation rate and will directly enhance the educational experience of each one of our students.
