The Class of 1969 Lenti Legacy Scholarship Match Campaign
Dear Lenti Legacy Scholarship Supporter,
As you may or may not know a member of the class of 1969 has pledged a $25,000 donation to Mount Carmel as a matching incentive to benefit the Lenti Legacy Scholarship. To date over $6,550.00 has been raised as a match to benefit the scholarship.
It is the committees hope that the class of ’69, Mount Carmel alumni, family and friends will continue to support the scholarship through their donations to the fund. It is our goal to raise $25,000 through the Match Campaign by the end of 2019.
We need your individual contributions to the scholarship in order to accomplish keeping the scholarship alive. Should we meet our goal of raising $25,000 for the scholarship we will be able to create a firm financial base to continue to be able to award the scholarship in perpetuity on a yearly basis.
But your support doesn’t stop here. We will have to continue to raise money for the scholarship going forward. The scholarship will be awarding $10,000 per year beginning with the 2023 school year. Our goal is to raise a minimum of $15,000 per year to support and grow the scholarship funds. This can be accomplished through our support and the support of alumni, family and friends.
We ask to please give whatever you are able. We are hoping that each of you contributes a minimum of $100.00 between now and the end of the year. Giving more would be greatly appreciated. You can donate by going to the Mount Carmel High School website at:
