Giving Tuesday proves to be a huge success for St. Bede Academy

Posted by wlpo on December 1, 2016

Any time you can raise an amount that doubles the goal you set, you know you’ve done something right. One Illinois Valley school is celebrating that accomplishment after their total was tallied for an annual day of giving.

St. Bede Academy had set out to raise $30,000 for this year’s “Giving Tuesday.” Within the 24-hour campaign, they had raised a total of $36,000. That’s not counting the matching donations that brought the total amount raised to $66,000.

The money will go to the St. Bede Annual Fund. The $66,000 was also an improvement over the school’s 2015 total, when they were able to raise $64,000.
