2017-2018 Letter From The Principal Dear Parents and Friends of Holy Redeemer, It is with great pride and gratitude that we submit to you the 2017-2018 Annual Report for Holy Redeemer Catholic School. We thank God for all His blessings, including the opportunity to be a part of an excellent Catholic community. We, along with our fellow Catholic schools in the archdiocese of Atlanta, are building the future of our Church and of our world. What better investment could we make of our time, our talent and our finances than to invest in a better tomorrow? Our Catholic identity remains inherent to our instruction and to the formation of character and means for us not only giving lip service to a belief, but putting our beliefs into action. Our faith requires a response and it permeates every aspect of our lives, every decision that we make and every action that we take. We want to help our students get to Harvard, but more importantly, we want to help them get to heaven. Therefore, we are committed to making students aware of the presence of God in all that we learn. The 2017-2018 school year brought continued academic success to our students. Survey results tell us that our alumni continue to thrive in their high schools and beyond and often attribute their success, at least in part, to the foundation they received during their elementary years. Music and art remained an important component of the well-rounded education we provide for our students. Most importantly, we worshipped as a community and worked together to serve others in local and global communities. Our successful annual appeal and Gala, as well as contributions from stakeholders, allowed us to install a new restroom, address increasing technology needs, purchase materials for enhanced instruction in S.T.R.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts and Math) and install hydration stations in various areas of our school. On behalf of the students, faculty and staff, I would like to extend my gratitude for your financial and emotional support and for allowing us to take part in the lives of these special young people. We are grateful for your belief in our school and in our mission and ask that you keep the students, staff and families of Holy Redeemer in your prayers. With gratitude,

Lauren Schell Principal

2017-2018 Service Projects Holy Redeemer Catholic School is a faith-centered community committed to living the principles of the Catholic Tradition rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our school community takes seriously Jesus’ command to live the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy. From our kindergarteners to eighth graders, Holy Redeemer Catholic School’s mission is evident. Kindergarten students begin their journey of service by creating Christmas stockings filled with items for Catholic Charities’ Refugee Resettlement children to use in their new homes. First Graders multiply their talents and collect funds to purchase items needed by children in the Mustard Seed communities of Nicaragua. Second Graders reach out to their home and school communities by organizing a coat drive to collect coats for children and adults being assisted by the North Georgia area St. Vincent de Paul Society. Third Graders realize the potential within themselves to help others less fortunate by walking in the shoes of children who have been suddenly removed from their families due to neglect. They multiply their talents to buy backpacks and items needed by the children assisted by the Foster Care Support Foundation.

Fourth Graders heed the call of Pope F rancis by practicing stewardship of God’s creation through a year-long recycling project on the Holy Redeemer campus. Fifth Graders develop a business plan to reach out to their school and neighborhoods to collect new and gently-used winter blankets for needy families received by North Fulton Community Charities. In Middle School, the students begin a formal program focused on the Corporal Works of Mercy. Sixth Graders work together in small groups in local organizations that assist the homeless.

Seventh Graders explore the issue of hunger among low-income Georgians in the context of their faith and raise funds for local food banks by participating in Atlanta’s only Hunger Walk. Eighth Graders combine all their service experience from previous years to collaborate in small groups on various service organizations that focus on the Corporal Works of Mercy. Our mission of service for others reaches a new level every February. In place of Valentine’s Day parties, every Holy Redeemer student participates in a Service from the Heart hour. Students work together in their Saint Families on various service projects to emphasize the love of Christ for everyone, especially those most in need.

2017-2018 Ways to Give When considering gifts to Holy Redeemer Catholic School, there are many opportunities that will not only benefit the school’s exceptional programs, but may also provide a tax-deductible contribution that is allowed by law. To learn more about ways to give to the school and its mission, contact: Jennifer Leonard, Director of Advancement at (770)-410-4056 ext. 216,

Annual Appeal The Annual Appeal is the foundation of giving to Holy Redeemer Catholic School. As with most private schools, tuition does not cover the full cost of educating our students. Giving to the Annual Appeal each year bridges the gap between tuition income and the full cost to educate our students. Each year, the Annual Appeal is an indispensable part of the school’s operating budget, enabling the school to fulfill its commitment to academic programs. Gifts made to the Annual Appeal are fully tax-deductible since no goods or services are received by the donor. 100% participation from faculty and staff, families, grandparents and alumni is a valuable endorsement of our mission and makes us a stronger candidate for foundation and corporate grants.

Annual Gala, Car Raffle These events held throughout the school year are the only fundraising events for Holy Redeemer.

Cash Contributions Unrestricted gifts of cash are the most popular and convenient way to support Holy Redeemer Catholic School. Gifts can be made in a single contribution or pledged and paid in installments. An outright gift of cash qualifies as a charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes.

Matching Gifts Today many businesses have matching gift programs that will double or even triple an employee contribution. Some companies match the gifts of spouses and retirees as well, greatly increasing the impact of a donation. Matching gift information is available from your Human Resources office or the Advancement Office.

Gifts in Kind These non-cash gifts are items that the school needs and uses including, but not limited to, office supplies, computer equipment or printing services.

Securities Gifts of securities, stock or bonds benefit the donor and the school. This type of gift is tax-deductible and the donor may avoid paying capital gains tax on the appreciated stock or security.

Planned Giving The most common planned gift is through a donor bequest, trusts, gift annuities, real estate, memorial gifts, life insurance and other financial instruments. A codicil naming Holy Redeemer Catholic School as a beneficiary can be added to an existing will.

GRACE Scholars, Inc. Any Georgia taxpayer can make a donation to GRACE Scholars and qualify for the Georgia Private School Tax Credit. Donors receive 100% credit against their Georgia State tax liability. Money that would have gone to the State of Georgia is now supporting Catholic schools in Georgia. Please visit the GRACE Scholars website: for more information.

Holy Redeemer Catholic School Endowment w/Catholic Foundation of North GA An endowment fund was established with an initial gift from Joseph Mitchell. This fund is in trust for Holy Redeemer through the Catholic Foundation of North Georgia. Additional contributions can be made through the Catholic Foundation.

2017-2018 Donor List The Annual Report has been prepared by the Advancement Office. Every effort has been made to accurately list all contributions made through June 30, 2018. Should any inaccuracies or omissions appear, please accept our apology for any inconvenience.

2017-2018 DAY of giving Twenty years ago, Saint Pope John Paul II said to an audience of Catholic educators in New Orleans, “Yours is a great gift to the Church, a great gift to your nation.” Countless people in our country have been blessed by the many gifts of Catholic schools. They have carried what they have learned and witnessed with them; however, many have lost touch with our local Catholic school communities. It is time for these people to reconnect with Catholic schools and give back. Holy Redeemer Catholic School was pleased to participate in Many Gifts, One Nation: A Day of Giving to Catholic Schools. January 30 to January 31, 2018, was a time for individuals to give to their local Catholic school. The generosity of our Holy Redeemer family and friends was truly overwhelming! Due to the enthusiastic response from our community, Holy Redeemer’s “Day of Giving” initiative raised $10,785. The money raised will go towards the purchase of S.T.R.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) materials that will benefit us in equipping our students with skills they will need for the future. We are so grateful for your unfailing support of Holy Redeemer Catholic School. Many Blessings – Lauren Schell, Principal
