SGOs benefit Bishop Luers families and donors

Bishop Luers High School recently distributed $35,000 in SGO (Scholarship Granting Organization of Northeast Indiana) funds to a total of 62 Bishop Luers students. The SGO is a scholarship program designed to provide low and middle-income families with tuition assistance. The State of Indiana created this opportunity for donors (individual and corporate) to receive a 50 percent credit for their state tax liability -- a "win-win" situation for our donors and student recipients!

We thank all donors who chose to participate in this scholarship program and benefit from the individual tax savings over 2018. Should you still wish to contribute to this fund before the end of 2018 through the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend, please contact Louise Jackson, Director of Mission Advancement, Visit the diocesan SGONEI website for additional information.

Office of Mission Advancement

The mission of the Office of Mission Advancement is to create an understanding and love for our school, resulting in a faithful and generous response to support our mission.

This mission will be accomplished through a comprehensive program that encompasses alumni affairs, communication and marketing, publications, student recruitment and retention, fundraising, volunteers, the annual fund, capital campaigns and special events. These efforts are a necessary part of Bishop Luers commitment to providing students with an education that promotes the development of Christian values, intellectual growth, respect for the individual, social awareness, and the opportunity to develop one’s gifts. Tuition and fees, alone, do not provide the necessary financial resources for Bishop Luers to meet the needs of our students. We rely on the generosity of alumni, parents, and friends as well as the support of the Diocese of Fort Wayne – South Bend to meet the ongoing needs of providing a quality educational program. Fundraising is critical to support needs-based tuition assistance, technology, capital improvements, expanding curriculum, professional development of faculty and staff, and other extraordinary costs associated with operating this school. Bishop Luers invites alumni, parents, and friends to join in an ongoing effort to achieve many goals. With your support, we can meet tomorrow’s challenges head-on and strengthen the programs we offer our students.
