What is Rams Day of Giving?
Think of it as a modern-day telethon - a 24 hour online fundraising event to give to the projects that mean the most to you and the students, parents, and teachers of Billings Catholic Schools.
Why have a Giving Day Event?
As our Billings Catholic Schools family, you are passionate about the faith, family spirit, and academic excellence of our Billings Catholic Schools. You form the lives of students, parents, and the work of our teachers with your generosity. In short, you HELP THEM CLIMB! A giving day event celebrates your impact on our schools, both now and the future!
What are the incentive prizes?
There is a first, second, and third place prize of $3,000, $2,000, and $1,000 respectively for projects that receive the most donors (i.e. not the most funds raised, not the most amount of donations) that support the project. Each person counts as one donor. Rams Giving Day is about participation! Every gift, whether $5, $500, or $5,000, helps a project towards the incentive prizes.
Results will be announced as Rams Giving Day closes at 12:00 pm midnight, October 29. Check back here or look to our Facebook page - search for Billings Catholic Schools Foundation
*The BCS Foundation projects Being Courageous Stewards (100) and the Tuition Assistance Fund (101) are not eligible for incentive prizes, to ensure that prizes are earned by our students and their teachers projects.
How do I participate?
Give to the projects that you are passionate. Go to ITEMS at the top left of the page to see what areas of need - need you! Each project has identified a fundraising focus and goal. Of course, if you can't choose just one area, give to multiple. And of course, you can always give to "the greatest need!"
To give an online donation, you must register and/or sign in with your email and/or phone number to participate. To see who and what projects have received in donations, open the "ITEMS HISTORY" button within the project page.
Do I have to give online?
No, you can give offline. You can send a check or give the Foundation a call at 406-252-0252 to help process your gift. You may have received a mailer, and your gift in the mail will count towards the totals!
HELP THEM CLIMB! Go see the ITEMS tab at the top of the page and support those you love! After you give, then spread the word to your family and friends, post of your social media pages, or email your BCS Family to tell them to give to the projects, and earn the incentive prizes!
