Giving Hearts Day was one for the record books for St. John’s Academy. The success of this day was made possible with the matching gift of $20,000 from Dr. Michael & Donna Ebertz. Michael is an alum of St. John’s Academy along with his many siblings, cousins, and his parents, Glory & John Ebertz. Michael & Donna strongly feel Catholic education is vital in the formation of children’s faith lives.
Dr. Michael Ebertz, a founding partner of Skin Care Doctors, P.A., has been a $1250 Sponsor for 14 years for our Annual HOPE Dinner and Auction. Over the years, Michael & Donna and family members would attend the dinner and auction, and Michael was one of our most faithful bidders for the auction. Dr. Ebertz also established a scholarship, the John & Glory Ebertz Memorial Scholarship, which was in honor of his late father and mother. This scholarship has grown rapidly and is now $374,000 and is set up in the FACE (Foundation Advancement of Christian Education) Endowment Fund. Each school year this memorial scholarship provides 3 full scholarships to 3 Catholic families who need financial support to attend St. John’s Academy.
It is because of people like Dr. Michael and Donna Ebertz that give us hope for the future of St. John’s Academy. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU, Dr. Ebertz & Donna, for your generous heart.
