We did it!!!!! Thank you!
Through donations made on GoFundMe and in the form of cash and checks, we have successfully raised $37,119, exceeding our original target by over $7,000 dollars. With the 2-1 match, we anticipate raising a sum, in total, well over our initial goal of $90k.
Our goal was to close the $90k gap remaining in the Nativity2020 capital campaign, using the annual New Bedford 1/2 Marathon as an organizing event. We were blessed early on when an anonymous donor offered a conditional 2-1 match for donations made in support of Team Martin through 3/31/19, leaving us with a more immediate goal of $30k.
We have raised and exceeded our initial Nativity2020 goal of $2,020,000 before the year 2020. With these funds, we are able to repair and restore our school building and faculty housing, while growing a healthy sustainability fund to secure our fiscal future for Nativity and its community.
Our sincere gratitude goes to John and Katie Mannix for organizing the “Team Martin” event to raise the remainder of the funds needed to reach our capital campaign goal. And of course, to Mr. John Martin, who’s commitment and leadership to Nativity Prep for the last five years has made this all possible.
