Support St. Vincent de Paul through give dekalb county!
Have you heard about the Give Dekalb County fund drive? It takes place on May 4th and is a way to support non-profit organizations (like the Society of St. Vincent de Paul!) that are making a difference in our local community.
The benefit of giving to our St. Mary/Christ the Teacher conference through Give Dekalb County is that the more we raise, the more we receive from their Bonus Pool.
The Bonus Pool is awarded to all participating non-profits based on the percentage of the overall Give DeKalb County total they raise. For example: If we raise 2% of the grand total, we will receive 2% of the Bonus Pool. If we raise 5% of the grand total, we get 5% of the Bonus Pool. Basically, the Bonus Pool ensures that every donation goes a little bit further during Give DeKalb County!
To donate to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul through Give Dekalb County on May 4th, just click on the link below and designate St.. Vincent de Paul as the place you want your donation to go!
