"A Bright Idea"
The LED Light Campaign
The mission statement of St. Agnes Academy-St. Dominic School states in part that, in the Dominican tradition, the school actively encourages ecological responsibility. This has been well represented through the research by our St. Dominic 6th grade boys on the benefits of LED Lighting.
The students have gathered information throughout the year and presented their findings to the Building & Grounds committee who unanimously agreed that it is a necessary and important next move for our campus. Because of the hard work of the 6th grade boys, all lighting in the Early Childhood Center and St. Dominic School will be converted from fluorescent to LED. Benefits of this conversion include:
To complete the entire project, the goal is to raise $26,000 by May 22, 2015. The per bulb cost to convert (including the bulb and installation) is $40 per bulb. That $40 investment yields a $257 savings over the life of the LED bulb (approximately 15 years) - the ROI is 2.5 years.
How Can YOU Help?
$40 replaces one bulb.
$500 replaces all bulbs in an ECC or SDS office or teacher work area.
$1,000 replaces all bulbs in an ECC or SDS classroom or the Dean’s office.
$1,500 replaces all bulbs in the SDS hallway or ECC reception area.
All gifts to this important endeavor are tax deductible and donors to the project will be recognized in a permanent location within the St. Dominic building.
