Annual Mater Dei Prep Spring Day of Giving June 15, 2020

These are indeed extraordinary times and we are acutely aware everyone has been impacted in one way or another. The support for Mater Dei Prep and for our community has been remarkable and we remain Seraph Strong and Seraph Resilient! Despite numerous Private Catholic School closings in the State of New Jersey and beyond, we will continue with donor support and our steadfast resolve to keep Mater Dei Prep thriving.
Due to COVID-19, and the impact it is having on our families and tuition revenue, we have established a goal for the Mater Dei Fund of raising $95,000 in May and June. To date, we have gifts and pledges totaling $65,000 thus, placing us only $30,000 away from achieving our goal. On June 15th, our Mater Dei Prep Spring Day of Giving challenge provides the opportunity for our community to come together and ensure success in reaching our goal for the Mater Dei Fund. Our Annual Fundraising Campaign, the Mater Dei Fund, is the school’s most essential fundraising tool and involves the entire school community — parents, alumni, faculty, staff and friends. Contributions help support the people and programs that make Mater Dei Prep exceptional. 


The Mater Dei Fund, our Annual Giving Campaign, is Mater Dei’s most essential fundraising effort and involves the entire Mater Dei Prep community – parents, alumni, faculty and staff and friends. Annual Giving creates critical budget enhancing revenue supporting the people and programs that make Mater Dei exceptional: support for talented students, faculty, financial aid, technology, and enriching arts and athletic programs. The funds raised through our Annual Fund appeal and our Named Scholar Program, help us make a Mater Dei Prep education affordable to the most qualified candidates through need-based financial aid support.
We hope that you identify Annual Giving to the Mater Dei Fund as one of your top philanthropic priorities this year, recognizing the significant impact of your contribution. By joining the “culture of philanthropy” at Mater Dei Prep, you help raise much needed funds for use in the current school year. We encourage you to consider a gift at the Leadership Level (Seraph Society) of $1,000 or more, if you are able.
Participation in giving at any level is among the most tangible way you can express your support for Mater Dei Prep.  Every gift counts! Every gift matters! So please, Partner with Prep and make a difference today!


Volunteers are critical to the success of the Mater Dei Fund. Our committee of Parent Grade Chairs and Alumni Class Captains educates our community on the importance of the Fund, writes thank you notes to donors, and helps with mailings. Volunteering can also be an extremely rewarding experience, providing meaningful opportunities for alumni and parents to connect (or reconnect) with classmates or fellow parents while furthering a common goal of supporting Mater Dei Prep students.
