How can you make a difference at Scotus this fall? Consider the opportunity through the Scotus annual appeal to add air conditioning to the Dowd Activity Center! Scotus has received a cost estimate of approximately $100,000 to add the Dowd Center and possibly the weight room to the school’s HVAC system; and we’ve been informed that by adding this additional “load”, the HVAC system school-wide will operate more effectively. Currently only the Dowd Center, weight room, locker rooms and maintenance shop are without air conditioning at Scotus. If we exceed the fundraising goal, additional funds may go to supporting tuition assistance grants for students to attend Scotus, improving the interior walls of the Dowd Center and refurbishing the Dowd Center flooring. Additional information and pledge envelopes will be provided in October and November by mail and in the fall Shamrock Alumni News. For reference, the last annual appeal was conducted in the fall of 2015 and we are so grateful to the 605 donors who invested $142,244.06 to make wonderful improvements at our school.
In the last 6 annual appeals our stakeholders have accomplished some important projects, by contributing a total of $322,623. Years 2013, 2010 and 2007 were SEF years. Thank You!
