The Share the Spirit Annual Fund Campaign kicked off this week and will run through the end of September. Information was mailed to your home address, and our incredible team of annual fund grade-level dads will begin communicating with you next week. There are several ways to make a gift and help us reach our goal of 100% participation. We’ve partnered with the Communities Foundation of Texas for North Texas Giving Day on September 17. Scheduled giving opened on September 1, and we have already received notifications that gifts have been made by our families - thank you! If you would like to schedule a gift through North Texas Giving Day, please click here: NTGD. Donations may also be made via the POP website: POP Annual Fund.
Additional support to the Annual Fund is provided every year through the generosity of corporate matching gift programs that make it possible for employees to increase the value of their gifts. The company match will be credited to you, and you will receive donor recognition for the total amount. Typically, individuals must submit forms to their employers and can find information about their matching gift benefits from their human resources department. Many programs are time-sensitive, so now is a great time to find out what documents you may need to provide to your employer in order to receive the matching donation. Please contact our Director of Development, Ms. Kelly Noonan, if additional information or documents are needed to move forward.
Mrs. Sharon Bohannon, one of our beloved teachers, retired last year after 21 years of teaching. Last spring, Mrs. Bohannon's daughter, Allyson Bohannon Goldman, passed away unexpectedly due to postpartum blood clots. Her daughter, Caroline, was only 7 weeks old. Allyson was dedicated to serving others. She was part of the POP Class of 2003 and graduated from Ursuline Academy of Dallas. Allyson’s Catholic education laid a foundation to serve others and helped her establish lifelong friendships. The Bohannon family established the Allyson Bohannon Goldman Memorial Fund to honor her memory and continue her legacy. The fund, administered through the Communities Foundation of Texas, will be used to give young girls and women the chance to attend either Prince of Peace Catholic School or Ursuline Academy of Dallas.
If you would like to join us in honoring Allyson and continuing her quest to serve others, information on the fund and the opportunity to make a donation can be found here: Allyson Bohannon Goldman Memorial Fund.
