St. Mark's Cathedral School often receives contributions in memory of or to honor individuals. When a memorial or honor gift is made to to the school, St. Mark's will send a card to the donor as well as to the family of the deceased or honored individual to acknowledge the gift.
We ask donors to include the name of the person being remembered or honored as well as the name and address of the person to whom the acknowledgement card should be sent.
Each May, St. Mark's Cathedral School participates in Give for Good, a 24-hour online giving challenge that brings North Louisiana together to benefit local nonprofits. Powered by Community Foundation of North Louisiana, Give for Good is North Louisiana's largest day of giving and has raised over $10 million for our community since it's establishment in 2014.
St. Mark's Cathedral School hosts two very successful annual fundraisers—Paw Print Sprint and Fiesta. Paw Print Sprint is a 5k road race and half-mile fun run held each fall, while Fiesta takes place in the spring and features silent and live auctions.
Both of these fundraisers provide opportunities for sponsorship for businesses owned and operated by members of our St. Mark's family and those in the larger community. Sponsorships are fantastic marketing opportunities and come along with exciting and fun events for our students, parents, and the community.
Businesses or individuals may choose to sponsor one of these events or become a dual sponsor for both events. Dual sponsors enjoy the recognition and benefits at both of these popular fundraisers, while also receiving a discount for early contribution pledging to both. Various installment plans and payment methods are offered.
Throughout the school year, St. Mark's Cathedral School holds several sales fundraisers that offer students and parents an opportunity to get involved in generating funds for our school. The Christmas Greenery Sales Fundraiser has been a long-standing and popular tradition at St. Mark's. These fundraisers are a great way to give back to our school, while also scoring some great products for yourself or friends and family.
