2019 St. Joseph Parish Campaign:
21st-Century Learning Lab with Chromebooks and IPads for new educational opportunities.
This year, your generous support through We Give Catholic will make a meaningful difference to St. Joseph Parish School. Can you believe it has been 11 years since our computer lab has been upgraded?
Ever-changing apps and devices have completely changed the education landscape bringing new tools and knowledge more quickly than ever. With technology becoming more like a school supply needed for every subject versus being a stand-alone class; it is time to make our lab more collaborative and innovative. That is why we will be removing our 2007-08 desktops and replacing them with 2020 iPads and Chromebooks. We will also add a Clevertouch Board to replace the outdated Smartboard.
The total bill for this endeavor is $27,440. We will be purchasing:
- 30 iPads with keyboards @ $458 ea
- 30 Chromebooks with 3-year licenses @ $310 ea
- 1 Clevertouch Board with mobile stand @ $4,400
We are still working on the type of furniture most appropriate for this new innovation lab, but getting the technology is a great start!

About We Give Catholic
Once again, Saint Joseph Parish will be participating in the online day of Catholic Giving known as We Give Catholic which takes place on “Giving Tuesday”, the Tuesday following Thanksgiving kicking off the charitable season when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. We Give Catholic is an ideal vehicle to participate in “Giving Tuesday” because it harnesses the collective power of individuals to raise awareness of Catholic organizations, encourage philanthropy, and celebrate generosity throughout the Cleveland Diocese.
Donating to St. Joseph Parish through We Give Catholic is a seamless experience that you can do from your computer, tablet, or smartphone at any time from 12 am-11:59 pm on November 27. Secure, tax-deductible donations will be accepted on the website WeGiveCatholic.org.
The money you contribute will benefit our parish directly and place us in the running to receive additional monies throughout “Giving Tuesday”. There will be at least $60,000 given away to participating organizations on that day as we engage in a friendly competition with other Diocesan nonprofits. Saint Joseph Parish is one of the more than 140 parishes, ministries, and other Catholic nonprofits participating in this online fundraising event.
Your generous support through We Give Catholic will make a meaningful difference. Visit https://www.wegivecatholic.org/organizations/saint-joseph-parish to donate. Let's make “Giving Tuesday 2018” a great day for Catholic giving and for our parish.
