Get in the Game: A #GivingTuesday Challenge

24 hours to double your impact

A fundraising campaign for GRMS & SJA

Make an exponential difference

Spreading awareness is a great way to help support our cause.


We're doing it again, and this time, thanks to a few friends, for every dollar you donate your gift will be matched up to $25,000.

That's right, when you donate to Guadalupe Regional Middle School (GRMS) and Saint Joseph Academy (SJA) on Giving Tuesday, November 28th, your gift will give again.

Help us reach our goal of raising $25,000 in 24 hours. The money raised will be split 50/50 by GRMS and SJA.



What is #GivingTuesday?

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season. 



Why Give


Your contribution to the shared mission of GRMS and SJA will transform these students into the SAINTS and SCHOLARS who will lead our community in the future.


Every dollar donated in the 24 hour period is eligible to be matched, doubling your impact.
