Looking for an easy way to support Bishop Brady and help raise funds for classroom supplies? If you have a Target REDcard, Target will donate 1% of what you spend on any item right back to Bishop Brady High School. It's easy to sign up. Simply complete the three fields in the first column titled "Sign me up." Next, enter your name and REDcard number to designate Bishop Brady as your school. If you don't already have a REDcard, you can apply for a Target credit or debit card; both have the same benefits. It's that easy. As of September, we have 24 people signed up; let's see if we can get to 50 by the holiday season! Happy shopping!
Great news for families: the NH Supreme Court has ruled in favor of the tax credit for businesses that support scholarships available to students in nonpublic schools, including Catholic schools. Such scholarships are available from the Network for Educational Opportunity. Families whose household incomes do not exceed 300% of the poverty level are eligible to apply, making a Brady education more accessible for students who might not otherwise be able to afford to attend. Applications for NEO scholarships will be available for the 2015-16 school year on January 1, 2015 on the NEO website.
