Give $1000 and get the financial aid impact of $2000!
Shields Challenge fuels year-end giving.
December 11, 2012. The next 100 St. Michael's alumni, parents and friends who donate $1,000 or more to student scholarship aid will see their donations increased by $1,000, thanks to The Thomas F. Shields '52 Challenge for Student Scholarships. This generous matching challenge comes at a time when financial aid is more important than ever. Your gift, multiplied by The Shields Challenge, will help us recruit the best and the brightest young men and women for the Class of 2017.
"Financial aid has never been more important," says Jerry Flanagan, Vice President for Admission and Enrollment Management. "Saint Michael's must go the extra mile to help students get the education they desire and the scholarship aid they need. Thanks to Tom's generous matching challenge, we can do more, student by student."
