On Giving Tuesday (Nov. 29), we invite you to support West Catholic and #GiveCatholicWM.
Our goal is to provide a dynamic, excellence-driven Catholic education for all who wish to receive one, regardless of their financial situation. With nearly half of our student population receiving tuition assistance, your generosity can be the difference-maker for a student and provide them with a learning experience that will last a lifetime.
How to Donate
The opportunity to give begins at 12 a.m. (midnight) on Nov. 29. From 12 a.m. to 11:59 p.m., you will be able to give securely online through the diocesan giving website (linked below). You will have the option to designate your gift to West Catholic High School. Credit card fees will not be charged, which means 100% of your donation will go to West Catholic!DONATE NOW

Once again this year, the Catholic Foundation of West Michigan has agreed to sponsor Giving Tuesday challenges offering grants totaling $10,000! The five challenges are intended to encourage participation, inspire the sharing of faithful, joyous stories, and spark good-natured competition. Take up one or more of these challenges throughout 24 hours of giving on Nov. 29 and help West Catholic qualify to receive additional funds!
