Sobrato Foundation Challenge

Sacred Heart Nativity School is thrilled to announce that the Trustees of the Sobrato Family Foundation have approved a challenge grant of up to $125,000 over a one year period, to support Sacred Heart Nativity School.

A Challenge Grant is a grant that is contingent upon new or increased cash funds being raised and received from individuals, corporations, foundations during a specified time period.


  • A cash gift from a first-time donor will be matched 100%
  • A cash gift from a lapsed donor (one who has not made a donation in 12+ months) will be matched 100%
  • A cash gift from a current donor (one who has given within the last 12 months) will be matched 100% by the increased portion of their most recent gift (e.g., if donor gave $500 last year and gives $750 this year, then $250 is the eligible amount toward the match.

For information on giving, contact the Development Office at (408) 993-1293 ext. 501 or donate online here.

The Sobrato Family Foundation has been a longtime generous supporter of Nativity. This current challenge grant will lead the way as the school continues to strengthen its fundraising approach and business model, and to ensure a smooth transition as President Sonya Arriola prepares to leave her position in June 2018.

Thank you to the Sobrato Family Foundation for your continued belief that together we can break the cycle of poverty through education!
