Madonna Alumni Class Challenge

Mr. Dan McCune ‘80, came to the Madonna administration with an idea: to begin a grassroots class challenge to raise financial aid funds for students who need assistance to attend Madonna High School. The effort lasted for eight weeks and brought in just over $30,000. Mr. McCune reached out to fellow alumni contacts he had and the news spread through letters, emails, text messages, and conversations.

The funds that were generously donated have been put aside to give to students that would otherwise not be able to attend Madonna High School due to financial reasons. If you were unable to participate in this class challenge, keep an eye out for the challenge that will happen in Spring 2020 to help raise financial aid funds for the 2020-2021 school year.

Special recognition to the class of 1960, who was small, but mighty with 3 donors that brought in $10,300! Also to the class of 1966, who had the highest number from their class participate with 17 individuals.
