St. Mary’s School Business Manager Connie Lembke receives a $25,000 Challenge check from Steve Hoeppner, vice president of the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation.

St. Mary’s granted $25K

St. Mary’s School recently received a $25,000 check for successfully completing a challenge they were offered by the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation. 

Schulze is the founder and chairman emeritus of Best Buy Co., Inc. The Foundation’s mission is to create transformational impact in several different areas, with Catholic education being one of those areas.

The Challenge created quite a buzz around the St. Mary’s community. In order to be granted the $25,000 from the Schulze Family Foundation, St. Mary’s School needed to raise $25,000, while attracting new donors. 

St. Mary’s School Principal Jen Swanson commented,  “The support we received was incredible. We not only have generated a total of $67,000 to enhance the education of our students,  but the Foundation’s philanthropic spirit has also impacted our school in countless ways. We are grateful for this opportunity.”
