“The STA Community has been challenged!”

“The STA Community has been challenged!”

Jose’ Becerra, principal of St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic High School, announced on Thursday, August 15, 2013, that the Ignite-Invest-Invoke

Capital Campaign has just received a $250,000 challenge gift from an anonymous donor. A check for ¼ million dollars will be handed to STA if Campaign leaders can raise a matching $250,000 by September 30, 2013. Combined with what has already been raised ($1,600,000 pledged and $900,000 in collected assets), this $500,000 will give the school the amount needed to move forward with construction. 


Over the next 60 days, Campaign leaders will be reaching out to financial leaders, parents, alumni, past parents, parishes, and the entire community in order to raise the $250,000 that will match the other $250,000 that has been promised. 

With the receipt of this gift, and the support of the STA community, the school will be able to meet the timeline established in June 2013 to move forward. That timeline is listed below.

* Begin Clearing of Road - completed in summer/fall 2013
* $500,000 in assets raised in order to begin construction - completed by Sept. 30, 2013
* Design Drawings - completed by October 2013
* Plans out to Bid - November 2013
* Accept Bids - December 1, 2013
* Begin Construction - December 15, 2013
* Complete Construction - December 2014
* Remove Portable Buildings - December 15, 2014
* Celebrate and Move In - January 2015
* Finish Paving of Road - March 1, 2015

We invite all associated with the St. Thomas Aquinas family to please be supportive as we accept the challenge and raise the additional $250,000 to move forward. Campaign leaders will be reaching out to the entire community over the next 60 days; however, if you would like to immediately make your gift to the Campaign, please call Kristy McWilliams, 985-542-8941 or e-mail kkarcher@stafalcons.org.
