Support a Twin Cities Catholic School when you make a gift to Relevant Radio
Through the generosity of an anonymous benefactor, donations made to Relevant Radio through May 31, 2020 may be matched to support tuition assistance at 54 schools in the Twin Cities area. This matching gift was originally made possible for those attending the April 24, 2020 Ninth Annual Christ Brings Hope Banquet. However, as circumstances have changed due to the coronavirus pandemic, donations may be made through this website, and a matching gift requested for one of the participating Catholic schools.

Frequently Asked Questions
How were schools chosen to participate?
Schools became eligible through the support of a Christ Brings Hope Banquet sponsor or table host. All schools that were represented at last year’s Christ Brings Hope Banquet are eligible again this year, in addition to several others, thanks to the support of new sponsors.
How do participating schools benefit from the match?
An anonymous donor will send each school a check for their designated gift amount after the end of the matching opportunity on May 31, 2020. Matching gifts will benefit a school’s tuition assistance.
Can anyone make a gift to Relevant Radio and have their gift matched for a Twin Cities area participating Catholic school?
Yes! Any gift made to Relevant Radio through this webpage or the matching gift mailing, by May 31, 2020, will be matched.
