A way for members of the archdiocese to prevent more school closings is for the more affluent to lend money interest free for a given amount of time. For example, a person could lend $10,000 for five or 10 years interest free. At the end of that time, at the lender’s request, that amount would be returned. Or the lender might decide, at the time for the loan to be returned to him, simply to donate the sum to the archdiocese to prevent more school closings.
If enough people would make such a loan, the archdiocese would have sufficient money to invest in sustaining its schools. The lender would not have to be a resident of Baltimore. Although I am 89 years old and my income is just a little above what I get from Social Security, I am going to donate something for this cause.
