Join us as we celebrate our 5th annual Champagnat Day on Wednesday, April 6. The 24-hour giving event commemorates the canonization of St. Marcellin Champagnat, the founder of the Marist Brothers, and celebrates those who live out the Marist mission — our students, faculty/staff, parents, alumni, and friends.
Our Giving Goal
Our goal this year is to raise $150,000 for the Marist Fund so that we may continue to give students the advantage of an exceptional, Catholic education. The first 600 donors who give $50 or more will receive a Marist-inspired Rubik’s cube that highlights the five pillars to which each member of the Marist family commits: Presence; Simplicity; Family Spirit; Love of Work; and In the Way of Mary.
How You Can Get Involved on April 6th
