"Building Mendel's Legacy through Charitable Works & Deeds"

When you give to the Mendel Catholic Prep Alumni Foundation, you are helping to build Mendel's legacy through the children and grandchildren of Mendel alumni. By giving to help build Mendel's legacy you help ensure that the tomorrow's leaders are well equipped with a college degree which is a pre-requisite to a 'leg up' in today's competitive workforce.

The recipients of the scholarships that the Mendel Catholic Prep Alumni Foundation will be assured that they stand on the shoulders of men who put forth the greatest effort to be the best that they can be. By supporting the efforts of the foundation you are in fact saying to future generations that education opens doors that were previously closed, opportunities once limited are now open to those who hold education in as high esteem as the graduates of Mendel. You are saying to the world that Mendel mattered and the recipients of these scholarships are charged with showing the world that Mendel mattered, through their success and good works.

Five Benefits Giving to the Mendel Catholic Prep Alumni Foundation Provides:

Giving to the foundation benefits you as much or more than it benefits those to whom you give. That reason alone should be sufficient to justify starting now. If you need more convincing, read on:

1. Giving to the Mendel Catholic Prep Alumni Foundation provide opportunities to serious minded students and helps deserving students who might not otherwise have access to them. When we raise the standard of education for them, the least able among us, we raise our own standard of living in turn.

2. What motivates you more: Having stuff or feeling good? If you chose the latter, you're not alone. Many have found over centuries of recorded history that their ultimate satisfaction came from helping those in need.

3. Those who witness our giving are reminded that we are all interdependent on one another for our care and well-being. That reminder can have a viral effect and motivate countless others to follow your example.

4. At the very least, your gifts to the Mendel Catholic Prep Alumni Foundation will be rewarded, in part, by the government in the form of a reduced tax liability. Business owners can especially benefit from this if they give through their businesses.

5. Some believe that what they give to the world is returned to them threefold, sevenfold, or even tenfold! Their experiences bear out their beliefs. The only way you'll find out is to start.

Any gift to the Mendel Catholic Prep Alumni Foundation is better than no gift. Start at a level you're comfortable with now. Increase if, or more likely when, you feel able and willing to. Look at what your generosity does for others, and also observe the good that it does for you.
