Class Gift: Supporting Financial Aid at St. Charles
Our St. Charles reunion gives us an opportunity to reflect upon our years at St. Charles and appreciate the values that education instilled in us. Classes are raising funds to support tuition assistance for needy students and their families to present Principal Lower with a Class Gift on Friday evening at the reunion STAG event. You may also choose to make your gift electronically/securely in the ‘Class Gift Program” section of the special SC Reunion RSVP site at https://www.stcharlesprep.org/event/2015-combined-class-reunion-weekend-online-reservation-form. Hopefully each of you is able to participate in some way at a level you are most comfortable! (Special note: Your commitment towards our Class Gift will also double as your participation in St. Charles’ 2015-2016 Annual Fund. You will not be asked to make good on pledges until next November when the Fund officially kicks off.)
