2024 Founder's Day Campaign supporting Reitz Memorial High School
Reitz Memorial High School

Donate $99 or more and get a pair of Memorial Socks!

You can pick up your socks at Holy Cross Hall on Monday - Friday between 7:30 AM - 3:30 PM. 

Holy Cross Hall will be closed December 25 - January 2. 

We will mail the socks to those who live out of town. 

Why Give?

At Memorial, we are not a school with a mission, we are a mission with a school. Here, every student is called to be more like Christ by educating their mind and their heart. Every donation - no matter the amount is an investment in this important mission and creates an impact in the lives of every student. 

To this day this remains our commitment to all our students. This year, we kicked off our “Founder’s Month” with Giving Tuesday on Nov. 28. Last year, we raised a record-breaking $189,720.88 for Memorial High School - $43,000 for tuition assistance and over $146,000 as a direct mission investment in our school through the Memorial Annual Campaign. The enclosed brochure explains more about how we carefully invested your support into our mission. This year, I'm asking you to renew your support to Memorial High School during our Founder's Moth of Giving and help us continue our work of forming the heart and educating the minds of students in an academically rigorous, value-focused environment

Through your gifts, we were able to make the following investments in our students and in our school:

  • 73% of our student body received $350,000+ in tuition assistance
  • $150,000+ in college scholarships
  • Individual Instruction - Professional Development for Faculty, Personalized College and Career Counseling, Specialized Academic Intervention. 
  • Math Department rooms renovated in 2023, Campus Security Improvements, Campus-Wide Internet and Technology Improvements

Whether you prefer to give to our tuition assistance fund through a donation to the school or through our SGO, or give a gift to our Memorial Annual Campaign, each gift is carefully stewarded and invested into our mission. Your gift - no matter the amount - is important, appreciated, and will help us continue our important work. 

Thank you for your continued support!

The dream of Francis Joseph Reitz was to build a great Catholic High School dedicated to the youth of Evansville that would positively influence generations of students. His foresight and vision were exceptional. Generations of students have traversed the halls of Memorial and graduates have traveled the world making a positive difference everywhere they go. 

Grateful for his initial gift, we recall the generosity of Francis Joseph Reitz every year by holding a Founder's Month of Giving. Join your class team, invite your classmates, and let's see which class can raise the most money in less than 40 days! Those who donate $99 or more between November 29, 2023 and January 6, 2024 will receive a pair of Memorial socks! 

We invite you to invest in our students and our mission by making a gift during our Founder’s “Month of Giving” campaign.
