Participation - Not Dollar Amount - Wins the Game!

Bishop Diego is running an Alumni March Madness tournament of giving to boost support for the school and keep our valued alumni involved.  The winning class will be the one with the highest rate of participation in the Fund for Bishop Diego.

Why Participation Rate?

Alumni donor participation at Bishop Diego is an important benchmark of internal support.  We report giving by all different constituencies when we apply for grants or when we are engaging new donors.  If the alumni are not invested, it is hard to encourage others to invest.

Class Prize

The winning class will have their own party at a Bishop Diego 2017 home football game at SBCC.

Rules of the Game

  1. Only the participation rate matters.  The amount of money raised is not a factor in the contest, so all classes can participate equally, including those just starting out in the work world.
  2. All alumni who have already given for fiscal year 2016-2017 are counted with their respective class.  These donations determine a class' starting participation percentage.
  3. Minimum donation to be eligible is $10.
  4. We encourage online donations but mailed donations are gratefully accepted as well.
  5. No one donor or group of donors can donate on behalf of an entire class.
