Big Give Supports Heelan

Heelan’s Big Give Raises $10,000 for Textbooks
Posted on 10/08/2020
Heelan raised $10,750 for textbooks as part of the third annual Siouxland Big Give, an online giving blitz day set for Tuesday, Oct. 6. The day raised over $125,000 for 86 non-profits. Heelan again was No. 1.

Nearly a dozen donors used a new feature this year --  Venmo for easy donations. 

“We will use Siouxland Big Give donor gifts to purchase new science, social studies and honors theology textbooks for our students,’ says Dr. John Flanery BHCS president.  

New advanced anatomy textbooks will further enhance learning tools for science while new social studies textbooks explain U.S. history and society struggles that continue today.

“While we have more technology and enhanced software, we always need excellent, updated textbooks,” Flanery says. “We appreciate donors who support our focus on strong academics.” 

Last year some 100 alumni, parents, teachers and friends supported Heelan with nearly $40,000 in donations to surface the indoor track of Heelan’s new O’Gorman Fieldhouse. In 2018 Heelan Big Give donors contributed $18,000 to help fund the new video scoreboard in the fieldhouse.
