Set the Future of St. John Bosco
Dear St. John Bosco Graduate,
As a graduate of St. John Bosco, we know you are aware of the lasting impact our alma mater has had
on your life in personal and professional ways. Dr. Brian Wickstrom started as our new President on
July 1, 2020. He has aspirations to make St. John Bosco be recognized nationally for top academics,
athletics, community involvement, activities and post-graduation success. To achieve this goal, we will
need support from fellow alumni, friends of the school and individuals that value the student experience
St. John Bosco delivers.
We are proud to be the co-chairs of the Set the Future of St. John Bosco Capital Campaign. The
campaign has a goal of $2,000,000. There have been 80 graduating classes from St. John Bosco and
our class of 1969 will be challenging all of the other classes to donate towards the campaign. Each
class will have one or two members make an initial class pledge and encourage every one of his Bosco
brothers to donate towards the Set the Future campaign, at a level they are comfortable donating.
Dr. Wickstrom is an advocate of transparency and included is a shared list of priorities where these
dollars will be spent if we can hit our goal. The areas of need cover academics, operations, facilities,
student support and athletics. This campaign is a unique opportunity to Set the Future for St. John
Bosco to become a national school of choice.
We encourage you to review the Set the Future campaign priority list and expect a phone call or e-mail
from a classmate to gauge your interest in contributing to our goal. If you know of an individual or
company that values the mission of St. John Bosco, please let us know and Dr. Wickstrom would be
happy to visit with them about supporting our campaign.
Can we count on you to make a donation to this important cause? By making a 100% tax deductible
donation to our Set the Future capital campaign, you'll be directly contributing to 800 boys who St.
John Bosco is shaping in to men who will follow our footsteps. Additionally, you'll be recognized for
your generosity as a Set the Future capital campaign supporter on St. John Bosco’s website and
Please help us Set the Future for our current Braves and those to come by helping us make St. John
Bosco High School a national school of choice. Go Braves!
