OLGC School is blessed with the strong support of our school by our school parents. The generosity of our school families is both remarkable and essential for the continued excellence of our program. OLGC School benefits from both a portion of the proceeds of the Parish and School Auction Gala each spring and from donations from individual families.
Occasionally during the school year a need arises to supplement an activity or provide new resources for our teachers to enrich the student experience. Often these needs require the purchase of additional materials. Staff development and training may also be needed. At these times we may appeal to the parent community to assist us with a donation. Donations such as these have allowed us to increase the technology available to our students, provide classroom sets of novels, enhance our clinic, launch the Lego League and provide additional online programs in our library, to name a few.

Matching gifts: Corporate matching gifts are a great way for parents, grandparents, alumni, and friends to maximize personal contributions to OLGC School and increase the impact of their gift. By taking advantage of a company's matching gift benefit, you may be able to double or even triple the amount of your contribution.
How do I get my gift matched?
First, find out if your employer has a Matching Gift Program. In many cases, you would be able to obtain this information from the Human Services or Personnel department.
If the company does match gifts, request the guidelines, which will inform you about OLGC School's eligibility, and any forms you may need.
If OLGC School is eligible to receive a matching gift from your employer, complete the forms and send them with your gift to OLGC School.
OLGC School will verify the gift and return the completed form to the company.
The company will then issue a matching gift contribution to OLGC School.
