We're only two weeks away from our deadline of raising $75,000 for the extraordinary Whitebox Challenge for ChestertonAcademy! Please help us meet our goal!

Here's some background:

In a dramatic, surprise announcement at our third annual benefit Gala, Andrew Whitebox, founder and CEO of Minnesota-based Whitebox Advisors, announced that he would once again match, dollar for dollar, donations to Chesterton Academy by May 30, up to $75,000. We are deeply honored by Mr. Redleaf's continued generosity and interest in supporting our mission to make rigorous, classical, faith-based education available at an affordable price. Learn more about why Andrew Redleaf supports Chesterton Academy.


We need to raise another $28,153 in the next two weeks to meet Mr. Redleaf's fundraising challenge. If you haven't done so already, please consider supporting Chesterton Academy during this special time, when every dollar counts twice.

Click here to donate online today! Any amount is greatly appreciated. All donations are tax-deductible and your gift will be matched, dollar for dollar, by Andrew Redleaf.

Looking for another way to support the school? Purchase tickets for a great night out to benefit Chesterton Academy -- our Home-Brew Evening on June 8 or our Cathedral Tour and Wine & Cheese Party on June 23. Tickets are $50 each and all proceeds go to support the Whitebox Challenge.

Thank you in advance for your support!
