About Spirit of Spring (SOS)

63818.jpeg

Spirit of Spring (SOS) is the annual auction fundraiser and biggest community party at Nativity of Mary! This is  our most important fundraiser  - funds raised go directly into the school budget as well as towards special projects that benefit all students. All Nativity families are encouraged to procure items and invited to attend the event. The event includes dinner, a silent auction, a live auction, and, of course, lots of socializing with fellow Nativity families, staff, alumni and other guests who support Nativity.

Save The Date!

We plan to hold our 2024 Spirit of Spring event on April 20, 2024. More details regarding the fundraiser (including how to purchase tickets to the event) will be coming soon. 

How Can I Support SOS?

Did you know it costs more to educate your child than what our annual tuition is? To help fill that gap and also provide some funds to complete capital projects at the school (not in the general operating budget of our school), we rely on our fundraisers. While donating to our Spirit of Spring efforts is not required, involvement and support from our families is vital to the success of the event. Whether you approach businesses or family to provide monetary support, donate a family cabin for a weeks stay as an auction item, donate your time to help plan the event, or purchase RaiseRight gift cards for game prizes or auction baskets, your involvement is critical.

 

We welcome newly purchased items but there are also many cost-free and fun ways to procure items for SOS! You can help Nativity of Mary School in two different ways:

 

1. Donate an item or experience! Simply complete the “Auction Donation Form” and send it back to us. All donations are considered tax-deductible in accordance with tax laws.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Sponsor this event! Various sponsorship levels are available. As an official sponsor, you will gain even more exclusive marketing opportunities and visibility. 

For additional information or questions, email us at: sos@nativitybloomington.org

Need donation ideas? We are looking for:

  • experiences

  • gift cards

  • local getaways

  • buy-in parties

What is a buy-in party? These are one of the most popular item types! A buy-in party is a separate event held at a later date for a pre-determined number of people to attend. As part of our online auction in April, people can purchase tickets to buy-in parties for a fixed, per-person price. 100% of the ticket proceeds go to Nativity of Mary!
