6th Annual “Breakfast with the Saints” Success
One hundred ninety guests gathered the morning of April 7th to hear from All Saints’ former students, its first principal, current leadership and all 200 students serenade the audience with “Bright Happy Day!” Guests responded very generously donating and/or pledging over $100,000 toward the Full Mission Fund and $80,000+ toward tuition assistance. This record-level of Full Mission support will not only meet this year’s operating budget needs, it will also help us meet a generous lead match of $50,000 by Weinstein Properties to fulfill a “wish list” including:
- New playground piece
- School Counseling
- STEM activities
- IT support
- Art supplies
- Outdoor classroom
- High-tech wireless microphones

“Breakfast with the Saints”
Held each spring, “Breakfast with the Saints” is All Saints’ major fundraiser. The event has raised over $650,000 in five years. This on-going support provides the school with a reliable and consistent source of income. The free, one-hour breakfast and program showcases the school’s many successes and share ways the community can help grow the school’s mission. Table Hosts personally invite guests to fill tables of ten. During the program alumni, students, teachers and parents share how their lives have been changed by their experiences at All Saints. Guests also enjoy songs performed by the entire student body. At the conclusion of the moving program, guests are asked to consider supporting the mission of the school through one-time gifts and multi-year pledges. To learn more about the effort, please contact Alyssa McBride, Director of Development and Marketing at (804) 329-7524 or email@example.com.
The Knights Circle is a new endeavor by All Saints to recognize those who have supported All Saints with a substantial financial gift of $1,000 or more. Often, these donors give at this level annually. The All Saints mascot is the Knight. A Knight is an elite warrior sworn to uphold the values of faith, loyalty, courage, and honor and who exemplifies the Christian faith. Knights were the entrusted defenders of the kingdom.
We look to the members of the Knight Circle as our entrusted “defenders” of our mission. Members are signified by the Knights lapel pin.
You can support future All Saints students with a stroke of a pen.
Through a charitable bequest in your will or living trust, you can ensure that All Saints Catholic School will keep its doors open to qualified students whose families cannot afford the full cost of a private Catholic education. This thoughtful act, which has little or no current financial impact on you, may result in the largest and most lasting one-time gifts you ever make to the school.
- Anyone can make a bequest, wealth is not a factor. See sample language Click HERE.
- This is an opportunity to sustain a cause you currently support—in perpetuity. You may direct your bequest to be used for the full mission of the school or to a special area of interest: retiring the debt, operations and facility maintenance, tuition, technology and instruction. Click HERE for a Legacy Society form.
- Act now – yes, it takes a little planning and perhaps some money but the dividends will be multiplied and the impact will be the long-time investment in a child’s future.
Always consult your lawyer or financial planner when including a gift in your estate planning. For more information on ways to make a planned gift Click HERE or contact Alyssa McBride, Director of Development and Marketing at (804) 329-7524 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
