Ways to Give to Shrine Catholic Schools

All gifts made to Shrine Catholic Schools are vital to the advancement of our mission. Gifts made to the annual fund provide unrestricted support for our schools. Donations can also be made directly for tuition assistance, named scholarships, technology improvements and other programming. Gifts can be made to Shrine Catholic Schools or specifically to the Grade School, Academy or High School

Please consider the following options before making a gift:

Cash Gifts

Cash gifts can be made through credit/debit card transactions, cash and personal checks, cashier’s checks, money orders made payable to Shrine Catholic Schools or specifically Shrine Catholic High School and Academy or Shrine Catholic Grade School.

Matching Gifts

Matching gifts through your employer helps make your donation to Shrine Catholic Schools go farther. Matching gift programs offered through participating companies usually match all or a percentage of employee contributions to charitable organizations, making the employer a partner in employees’ personal philanthropy. Most participating employers have matching-gift forms which should be filled out and then sent to the Shrine Advancement Office with your contribution.

Gifts In-kind

Donations can be made with tangible items such as computers, office or athletic equipment, books or other items related to education. The Shrine Advancement Office can help you determine the acceptability of gifts as well as potential tax benefits and implications of gifts in-kind.

Planned Gifts

You can remember Shrine Catholic Schools by leaving a gift in your will or estate plan. Making a planned gift may allow you to give more than you ever thought possible and, at the same time, you may experience tax advantages or income for a number of years or life. Please contact the Advancement Office for more information regarding planned gifts.

Gifts of Securities

If you hold securities that would incur a tax on capital gains if sold, your outright gift to Shrine Catholic Schools could mean significant savings. You obtain a tax deduction for the full market value of the gift, and you may avoid a tax on the increase in value.

Reunion Gifts

Consider a gift to Shrine Catholic Schools in your plans if your class is hosting a reunion.

Recurring Gifts

Consider setting up a recurring gift with your bank.
