PA’s fundraising efforts going strong

‘Tis the season of giving. Providence Academy relies on the generosity of the PA community in order to raise money in fundraising events.

Along with the on-going Captial Campaign, Providence participated in the Minnesota state-wide day of online giving called “Give to the Max Day” on November 14. According to PA’s Coordinator of Development, Mrs. Dawn Schommer, the website is designed to “call importance to the giving of charities.”

Give to the Max Day marked the beginning of fundraising for the Annual Fund which goes towards arts and athletics, financial aid, PA’s operating budget, faculty professional development, and everyday expenses at Providence.

Despite the fact that Providence didn’t set a goal for this year, the school did not make as much money as last year. This was most likely due to the Give to the Max website being shut down for five hours, which made many people not have the opportunity to give.
