Your Gift Can be Doubled

We are thrilled to announce that an anonymous donor has stepped forward with a matching challenge for our Annual Fund. The next $75,000 in Annual Fund gifts received will be matched dollar for dollar. Whether you have already donated to our Annual Fund this year or not, this is an extraordinary opportunity to help us unlock the full $75,000 of matching challenge funds.

We are now in the final month of our 2018-2019 Annual Fund campaign as our fiscal year ends June 30th. Will you make a gift and help us unlock the full $75,000 of this matching challenge?

Gifts can be made online or mailed to:

Providence Academy Development Office
15100 Schmidt Lake Road
Plymouth, MN 55446

Contact Josh Anderson, Manager of Annual Giving, with any questions. Mr. Anderson may be reached directly at (763) 258-2531 or by email. God bless you for considering an Annual Fund gift to help us meet this challenge goal.

We invite you to join us in celebrating this year’s graduates by tuning in to the livestream of the Commencement Ceremony, which will be held at 8:00 p.m. on Friday, May 31, in our beautiful Performing Arts Center. All are certainly welcome, as well, to attend our glorious Baccalaureate Mass at 4 p.m. that same day, at the Basilica of St. Mary.  Congratulations, Class of 2019!
