The late Sr. M. Pulcheria Saukaitis, whose time at OLSH spanned from entering as a student in 1935, serving as a teacher and principal and later a volunteer until her passing in 2019, shared with me several years ago that,
“We should give back to those from whom we have received to show our gratitude. Our education from OLSH has helped to shape our lives. We are here on earth to share our talents with our fellow members. Let OLSH spread its good news for many more generations.”
This is one of hundreds of reasons that I have heard for why people give to OLSH. Giving is a very personal decision and for some a calling. It is your personal connection to OLSH that should serve as your inspiration to give. Your personal experience or the experience you have witnessed in another, can be your motivation in that you to want others to share in a similar experience. The work we do is only possible through the continued support of our community of donors.
This year’s Advancement Review shares some stories about why others have decided to give back to OLSH with a charitable gift. The pages also list the many alumni, current parents, alumni parents, faculty, staff and friends of OLSH who were called to give.
One of the great joys in my role at OLSH is listening to the stories of why people to choose to give. It is my hope that you have a story of your own that is inviting you personally to join our OLSH community of donors.
Vice President for Advancement
