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 7:00 a.m. on April 17 and ends at 8:00 p.m. on April 19. Want to donate early? CLICK HERE to visit the pre-launch page.

Who can participate?
Everyone! Our goal is 500 donors.

What counts toward this giving day?
Any gift made between April 17 and April 19 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. ALL IN for the Eagles will support both immediate and long-term priorities at Bishop Watterson. Funds raised will support our efforts to grow in faith, build community and instill a drive for excellence. Give to what you love, give to the family you love.

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 All In for the Eagles 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>
