A Taste of Heaven: Mary Kinsey GoFundMe
Unexpectantly and abruptly, Mary Kinsey, parishioner, life on this Earth ended on July 12th when a truck failed to stop at a stop sign and struck Mary’s vehicle in Millstadt, IL. Mary was killed instantly, leaving her two boys without their beloved mother. As a single mother, Mary worked full-time as a nurse and tirelessly supported her boys making all of their activities her top priority.
We establish this fundraiser with love, admiration and honor to benefit Mary Kinsey’s two precious boys: JJ, a Junior at Gibault Catholic High School, and Danny, an 8th grader at Ss. Peter & Paul Catholic School.

Why Donate to SPPCS Through the Tax Credit Scholarship Program?
Kids only get one chance at a quality education. Empower Illinois expands quality education options for low-income and working-class families of Illinois by granting scholarships to students attending private schools.
Donors who give to SPPCS through the Tax Credit Scholarship Program receive a 75% tax credit for the amount of their gift, up to $1 million. In addition, any portion of the tax credit may be carried forward for up to five years. Therefore, the tax credit is an incentive for a donor to increase the amount they donate in tuition assistance. Donors can QUADRUPLE their impact with no extra money out-of-pocket.
