Make An Impact Challenge 





Don Dion ’72 was ecstatic when informed that St. Dom’s had met the goal.  “I am proud to be part of the Impact Scholarship Campaign at St. Dom's. The support from our alumni, the school community, and the Portland Diocese has been inspiring. This campaign will open doors for future scholarship recipients, creating a world of opportunities for many students. Over the next four years, this campaign will bring in $1,200,000 for St. Dom’s in scholarships for families. Together, we are shaping a brighter future.”

School Board Chair Kathy Pleau Martin ‘98 was delighted to hear the news.  “As Chair of the St. Dominic Academy's School Board, I am deeply moved by the resounding success of our Impact Scholarship Campaign. The generous contributions from our alumni, the steadfast support of our school community, and the invaluable partnership with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland and Don Dion '72 have propelled us toward our shared vision of accessibility and excellence in education.  This initiative is not merely about raising funds; it's about opening doors of opportunity for deserving students.  Over the next four years, our commitment to scholarships will shape a future where financial barriers do not hinder access to a St. Dom's education. Together, we are champions of inclusivity and empowerment, ensuring that every student can reach their full potential. “



The Dion Impact Scholarship Match’s goal is to provide life-changing educational scholarships to deserving students.  We are thrilled that Don Dion ‘72 and the Diocese of Portland, Maine have each pledged to match every dollar donated during this campaign. This means that for every dollar you contribute, these donors will contribute an additional dollar, up to $100,000 each, effectively tripling the impact of your gift.

Your support of the Dion Impact Scholarship Match will allow deserving St. Dom’s students the opportunity to pursue their dreams and build a brighter future. Thank you for your generosity and for joining us in this mission to make a lasting impact through education.
