SWING Fundraiser

SWING Fundraiser

Get yourself ready for an impactful trip around the world on Saturday, April 30, 2022 and let’s see just how far kindness travels!

Join us Saturday, April 30, 2022 for our annual SWING fundraiser benefiting Highland Catholic School. Travel and kindness bring people together. We are excited to combine the two by taking SWING Around the World.

This year’s SWING theme recognizes the great work of our students and teachers to learn and embody Kindness Travels this school year. SWING Around the World also allows us to come together to celebrate our local and global community while raising funds for our beloved school. In addition to supporting the general operating budget and stable tuition rates, the focus of this year’s fundraiser is critical resources to help students’ social and emotional development, which have been adversely impacted by the pandemic. Because strong children make a community stronger. 

What is SWING?

The annual SWING event is Highland Catholic School’s biggest fundraiser, uniting current school families, legacy families, parishioners and friends to raise critical funds, directly benefiting our students and teachers. It’s a fun and wonderful celebration of community.

Why it matters?

SWING has raised more than $1,000,000 in the last 23 years. Proceeds from the various events, raffles and auctions support Highland Catholic School’s general operating budget, from stable tuition rates and access to specialists to technology upgrades and improvements in the facilities. 

Specifically, past events have funded:

  • Our Literacy Lab, Enrichment Room, Library, Spanish Instruction, as well as our Music and Performing/Visual Arts offerings. 
  • A 1:1 iPad program for all students in Grades K-8 (making remote learning possible during the pandemic), as well as additional devices for the Preschool classrooms. 
  • An Elementary Counselor to support the mental health of students in Grades K-6.  

Highland Catholic School is proud of the resources and extra programming that continue to be funded by SWING dollars, and we invite EVERYONE to join us in our efforts to not only meet our fundraising needs, but to further invest into the 2022-23 school year with the best tools and resources for supporting students’ mental health.
