Living the Mission FAQs
What is the campaign target and what does the money go towards?
The target for Living the Mission is $12,000,000. This is a comprehensive capital campaign in which funds raised will go toward five needs:
- New Pastoral Center
- Priest Pension Plan
- Native American Ministry Endowment
- Rapid City Catholic School System Endowment
- Thomas More High School Cafeteria and Multi-purpose Room
Will my parish benefit from the campaign?
When the parish goal is reached, all parishes receive 20% of parishioners’ gifts. All parishes will then receive 60% of gifts received over the parish goal. Likewise, all parishes benefit from shared ministries funded through Living the Mission campaign.
Why is each donor asked to complete a pledge card?
Each donor is asked to complete a pledge card so their gift will be appropriately recorded and acknowledged. The pledge card is an indication of good faith, an intent to meet the terms of the gift, and is not legally binding.
