Take the Next Step

During the year, we sometimes have generous donors who set up a giving challenge or grant that is unlocked as the community contributes. If you’d like to set up a giving challenge, please reach out to our Office of Advancement, today.

Westlake Challenge

Julie Billiart School Westlake is JB’s newest campus and offers families on the West Side of Cleveland a much-needed educational option for kids with learning differences.

Throughout the last fiscal year (July 1, 2020-June 30, 2021), JB Westlake had a unique fundraising opportunity to help make your gifts go even further for our students. We wanted to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who contributed to our challenge. Because of you, we successfully met our goal of $200,000 unlocking an additional $400,000 from a very generous donor. 

This fiscal year (July 1, 2021 - June 30, 2022), we must raise $300,000 to unlock our match. The Westlake Challenge will match your gifts 1:1 this year. 

Your gift to JBW will be used to make physical improvements to the classrooms, support operating costs, and ultimately give children access to the kind of education they so richly deserve. Your gift always makes a difference, and this year, your gift will make an even bigger impact as it is matched 1:1.

We must raise $300,000 for JBW by June 30, 2022, in order to unlock an additional match! 

Your gift will go a long way to help us reach this important milestone.  Gifts can be made online, through the mail, through donor-advised funds, or through the sale of stock.  Please just indicate that your gift is to be used to support Julie Billiart Westlake.  If you would like to discuss a gift for this unique challenge, please contact Anne Jarrad in the Office of Advancement at 216-691-8916 x. 163 or via email

open-quote They have all the resources necessary, specialized to the individual learning of each child, and the heart that goes with it. I don't think we would have stayed in Ohio if it wasn't for JB! close-quote
