LEE COUNTY – Holy Trinity Catholic Schools will launch the public phase of their Century Strong Capital Campaign on April 20 to raise a total of $5 million that will go toward teachers’ benefits, tuition assistance, technology and capital improvements.
After the silent phase of the campaign began in late 2012, donors contributed $1.6 million in pledges and gifts, said Lori Wilson, Holy Trinity’s development director. That total includes the largest single gift in the schools’ history, $1 million from a couple who wishes to remain anonymous, Wilson said. “Our people are very dedicated, and everyone takes care of each other.”
The school system aims to raise:
• $1.5 million for the elementary school building in West Point, which would receive upgrades to electrical, lighting, heating and air conditioning, gym restrooms, concessions and classrooms.
