CAT EMPLOYEES AND RETIREES, you can triple your gift to St. Mark’s School! For a limited time, the Caterpillar Matching Gift Program is doing 2:1 match! Donations to SMS of up to $750 will be matched double by CAT! That means a $500 gift would be matched with $1,000 for a total of $1,500! The 2:1 match will end on 11/30/21 or when a total of $1.5 million donations are received, which ever comes first. This is a fantastic way to increase your giving dollars! To start your donation directly to St. Mark's school, visit: https://saint-mark.weshareonline.org/ws/opportunities/StMarksSchool For more information on the Caterpillar Foundation, and submitting a match request visit: https://www.caterpillar.com/en/company/caterpillar-foundation/matching-gifts/giving-tuesday-match.html or contact Director of Advancement Maria Carroll 309-472-7522 for assistance.

Every year, from September 15th to October 15th, we honor the contributions of Latino & Hispanic communities with the celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month. Fun fact: Hispanics are 40% of the total Catholic population in the United States. Did you know that the current enrollment at St. Mark’s is also 40% Hispanic and Latino? It is a great reason to give thanks and celebrate the achievements of our community.
