Thank you to everyone who supported Raider Day of Giving!
Thank you to everyone who made a Challenge Gift - we unlocked $125,000 in challenges!
Thank you to the Raider Day of Giving Virtual Ambassadors who gave their time to help spread the word with email and social media.
You made our 2022 Raider Day of Giving one of our largest ever!
We received 307 first-time gifts to Raider Day of Giving, and 87 first-time gifts to Central Catholic!
We received gifts from every graduating class since 1955, 32 states, and six countries!
