“‘Fear of the Lord,’ may seem to be a somewhat unusual topic for a ‘Festival Letter’, but I have my reasons. It seems to me that reverence and awe before Almighty God is necessary for all of us, especially in these godless, secular days. ” – Most Reverend Daniel R. Jenky, C.S.C.

As of the end of September, there is much excitement throughout the Diocese because 264 of our school students have received over $1,000,000 of tax credit scholarships! Unfortunately, St. Joseph School had 43 families apply for a scholarship, but haven’t received enough donations to award one scholarship. Awards can only be given if the school has sufficient donated dollars for the next student in line to receive a full scholarship. For 2018, there still remains an untapped potential in Illinois of over $55 million in scholarship donations eligible for the 75% Illinois income tax credit.  It’s definitely a WIN-WIN as students receive 100%, 75% or 50% of their tuition and the donor receives a 75% Illinois tax credit on the amount of their donation to the SGO, the scholarship granting organization. It is not too late to make a donation for the 2018 tax year.
