All In for the Eagles
Frequently Asked Questions
What is ALL IN for the Eagles?
A Bishop Watterson event for Eagles worldwide to come together as one Eagle family to show support.
When can I show that I’m ALL IN?
The event begins at 8:00 a.m. on April 17 and ends at 4pm on April 21st. Want to donate early? CLICK HERE to visit the pre-launch page.
Who can participate?
Everyone! Our goal is 750 donors.
What counts toward this giving day?
Any gift made between April 17 and April 21 or gifts made via the pre-launch page count toward our goal. If you have a question about a particular gift, contact Tyler Johnston.
Is this Giving Day part of the Annual Fund?
These are not the same event. The ALL IN giving week is replacing the Family Scholarship. The ALL IN for the Eagles giving week will support both immediate and long-term priorities at Bishop Watterson. Funds raised during the week will support similar initiatives of the Annual Fund, such as tuition assistance, while also supporting priority areas, such as building up our endowment and capital repair funds. Give to what you love, give to the family you love.
What are the capital repair needs?
Large portions of our building are 70 years old and we have more than 140,000 square feet…it’s a lot to maintain for current and future Eagles! Capital repair projects include much needed repair to our HVAC or projects such as roofs, lighting, parking lots, and more.
Will my name and donation amount be visible on the campaign page?
Your name will appear on the campaign page. No amounts are listed unless you offer a match or challenge. If you wish, you can also choose to remain anonymous.
How will my donation count toward my class year?
When you make your gift, you will select your designation (alumni, parent, student, staff, grandparent, etc). Once you select your designation, your gift will be counted as part of that group and added to the total. Every gift counts. Give to the family you love!
Is my gift tax deductible?
Yes. As with any charitable contribution to Bishop Watterson, your gift to ALL IN for the Eagles is tax deductible to the full extent of the law. Your tax receipt will be emailed once a gift is made. If you have additional questions on tax deductions, please consult your tax advisor.
How can I help make the week more successful?
First and foremost, make your gift and lead by example to show that you are ALL IN. Once you’ve done that, you can help by becoming an advocate on GiveCampus and spread the word via your social media or emails. For more, see <3 Easy Ways to Show your Support doc>
We’ve prepared a digital toolkit to help you easily spread the word and encourage Eagles around the world to be ALL IN for the Eagles!
