Employer Matching Gifts

Many corporations will match donations given by their employees to a non-profit organization.  Your company website should have a form employees can fill-out to apply for the matching donation (also called a Matching Gift).  Please consult the Human Resource Department at your company for more information.

In Memorial Gifts

Often times when a member of our School or Parish community dies, they ask for donations to be left to the school or church in their memory.  These unanticipated financial injections are a source of needed funding for our Tuition Assistance program.

 

Bequests

From time to time, St. Francis of Assisi School and/or Church are recipients of generous bequests.  Friends from our School or Parish community will write us into their will or their life insurance policy.  At times we receive entire estates or portions of those estates.  Some individuals generously leave it to us to use where we need it most; sometimes people make a restriction with the donation determining how it must be used.  All directives are followed. These financial gifts are a source of much needed funding. Hopefully more and more people will start writing the School into their final requests and directives.
