The Lake Michigan Catholic School Fund says it has been able to raise $800,000 for endowments to provide tuition scholarships and instructional support for teachers. More than half came in from two area families as LMC graduate Mary McEvoy and her husband Paul pledged to match up to $250,000for endowed student tuition scholarships. Tony and Jackie Monte, both graduates of LMC, focused their matching gift of up to $150,000 on creating an endowment for instructional support in conjunction with the new Sam and Connie Monte Global Trading and Finance Lab. The LMC School Fund launched the “40 Days for Catholic Education” online fundraising campaign earlier this year and had been set to end it June 24, but ongoing donor enthusiasm prompted LMC to extend the initiative. The funds from this campaign will be divided into two endowments.
