Incentives offered to schools promoting donor contributions

As part of the goal to raise $5 million to help children receive a Catholic education in the archdiocese, $200,000 in incentives is being offered to Catholic schools.

Here is a list of the possible incentives that are available to Catholic schools in the archdiocese for bringing potential donors to a breakfast or lunch event that promotes making contributions to Indiana Tax Credit Scholarships.

First, every school that enlists at least five non-school employee attendees to come to one of the events will receive a $2,000 incentive.

Other scholarship incentives will be distributed at these levels:

Level 1

  • $15,000 to the elementary school with the greatest number of attendees.
  • $15,000 to the high school with the greatest number of attendees.
  • $10,000 to any school with the greatest number of donors.
  • $10,000 to any school with the greatest monetary amount of total donations.

Level 2

  • $5,000 to any school with the greatest number of attendees (as a percentage of student enrollment).
  • $5,000 to any school with the greatest number of donors (as a percentage of student enrollment).
  • $5,000 to any school with the greatest amount of total donations (as a percentage of student enrollment).

Level 3

  • $7,500 to any school with the most repeat attendees from 2013.
  • $7,500 to any school with the most repeat donors from 2013.

Level 4

  • $5,000 as an “early bird” incentive to any school with the most RSVPs by April 17 (with the stipulation that 90 percent of the people who send an RSVP must attend an event).

Level 5

  • $20,000 in additional scholarship incentives will be announced later.
