Once again, Assumption is joining forces with Mercy, Presentation, and Sacred Heart for #RivalsUnite4Girls 2019! This challenge, between the alumnae of the four all-girls Catholic high schools in Louisville, is focused on strengthening girls’ education and increasing alumnae giving to the Annual Fund.
The winner of this challenge is determined by the percentage of alumnae who donate to their alma mater. The school who has the highest alumnae giving percentage at the end of this four day challenge will win the Golden Piggy Bank and a year of bragging rights! It’s not about the dollar amount, but rather alumnae participation.
This is the fourth year for the challenge and we know Assumption Alumnae will come out on top on March 18-21!
In 2018, AHS alums raised more than $67,000 for the Annual Fund in just four days. Rocket alums also came out in big numbers! Nearly 1,100 alums participated in 2018, the greatest number among the four schools during the challenge.
Your gift helps more girls receive a high quality, college preparatory, Catholic education at Assumption High School. Thank you for making another future Rocket’s dream come true! GO ROCKETS!
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: What is the Annual Fund?
A: The Annual Fund bridges the gap between the cost of tuition and the true cost of the Assumption experience. It provides much-needed tuition assistance to more than 200 students, as well as helps offer competitive teacher and staff salaries, up-to-date classroom technology and equipment, funding for our four-year retreat and service programs, and the many other student programs, services, and activities that are available to the students throughout the year.
