ALL SAINTS’ MILLION DOLLAR DAY!
On Tuesday, August 27, 2019, All Saints students became a part of history.
All Saints Catholic School hosted a special all school thank-you presentation for Mr. Marcus Weinstein who presented the school with its first million dollar check. The funds are designated for The Future is Now campaign. When All Saints was constructed 50+ years ago, its design allowed for easy future expansion to occur by converting the carport into finished rooms.
Finally, the future is now; poised with Mr. Weinstein’s million-dollar matching gift, All Saints will revitalize its physical space by adding 6,800 square feet of learning and administrative space and configuring current areas to their best use.
In recent years, the Jr-K through grade 8 parochial school has witnessed growing enrollment, increased philanthropic support, and continued 100% high school completion by its graduates, but the school has faced escalating challenges with a shortage of space.
In response to the $1M gift from Weinstein Properties, All Saints must raise an additional $1.3M to provide expanded academic and administrative spaces. Specifically the project includes the creation of three new classrooms, making space to join the lower grades on the lower level and middle school on the upper level. It includes space to continue to provide a competitive level of high school credit classes and add a classroom for a self-contained fifth grade. It includes dedicating permanent space for Music and Art classes and adequate space for teacher workspaces, tutoring, counseling and support offices. The project will also enhance security and safety with a new front office with improved control and increase ADA accessibility with the addition of an elevator.
All Saints seeks funds to match the generous gift so the school may soon put every square foot to its best use in service of the educational and spiritual needs of its students. This project will help ensure that the “Gem of the Northside” will live fully in its mission as a school of high moral expectations and academic rigor.

“Breakfast with the Saints”
Held each spring, “Breakfast with the Saints” is All Saints’ major fundraiser. The event has raised over $1 million in eight 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.
8th Annual Breakfast with the Saints success!
On April 5, 2019 All Saints held its eighth annual “Breakfast with the Saints.” Over 200 guests were in attendance to hear from three alumni now entering college, their mothers and their favorite teacher who has been with All Saints for 25 years. The entire student body performed “On Holy Ground” and “Bright Happy Day.” The school was honored to have His Excellency, Most Reverend Bishop Barry Knestout close the program with remarks and a blessing. While support continues to come in, the school expects to raise close to $200,000 in tuition assistance and full mission support.
THANK YOU to all those who made this event a success!
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.
On November 10, 2018, we honored Knights Circle members at a reception. Fifty guests braved the cold and dark to enjoy food, drinks and fellowship on for the Fifth Annual “Knights Circle” Reception. Several new Knights were inducted into the Circle which now includes over 100 households. A short program included a testimonial from Lisa Meade, parent and PTO Vice President. A special thanks to our hosts Margaret & Jerry Keightley. See the full list of Knight Circle members Knights Circle members 2018.
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.
