2019 DION CHALLENGE
Give the Gift of Education!
$150,000 Match up for Grabs for tuition assistance!
Help St. Dom's earn 100% of the match by participating today!
Donald Dion, a 1972 graduate of St. Dom's, is challenging the community to help raise $300,000 in scholarships to assist local families in overcoming financial hardship to provide their children with opportunities to attend the school that launched his successful career in finance.
From April 1 to May 1, Dion will match every dollar donated to the scholarship fund up to a maximum of $150,000. This is a 50% increase over the 2018 match!
After graduating from St. Dom's, Dion earned a bachelor's degree in economics and business administration from St. Michael's College in Vermont before receiving a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Maine Law School and a master's of law degree from Boston University Law School. He founded Dion Money Management, an investment advisory firm, in 1996; served as the publisher of the Fidelity Independent Advisor; and is the trustee of the Dion Family Foundation, which focuses on helping individuals by offering tuition assistance at Catholic Institutions.
Don attributes much of his success in his career in finance to the education he received at St. Dom's. "I was fortunate enough to attend St. Dom's," said Dion. "Along with the rigorous academics, I learned to work hard, reach for my goals, and value service to others. I would like to ensure more students are afforded the opportunity of a faith-based college preparatory education."
Take advantage of this opportunity now! This campaign is in effect from April 1 to May 1.
