The Annual Fund is the foundation of giving to Holy Redeemer Catholic School. As with most private schools, tuition does not cover the full cost of educating our students. Giving to the Annual Fund each year bridges the gap between tuition income and the full cost to educate our students. Each year, the Annual Fund is an indispensable part of the school’s operating budget, enabling the school to fulfill its commitment to academic programs.
Cheryl Hogan Tuition Assistance Fund
In March of 2019, this fund was established for our school by the Hogan family in memory of Cheryl Hogan, our former Business Manager, in recognition of her passion for helping families in need provide a Catholic education for their children at Holy Redeemer. Please contact Jennifer Leonard to contribute to this fund.
Knights of Columbus Financial Assistance Fund (Council 13204)
The Knights of Columbus (Council 13204) have established a fund for Holy Redeemer Catholic School students with financial need. In recognition of the original mission of the Knights of Columbus to assist widows and orphans, preference will be given to Catholic students from single parent households with documented financial need.
Annual Gala, Car Raffle
These events held throughout the school year are the only fundraising events for Holy Redeemer.
Unrestricted gifts of cash are the most popular and convenient way to support Holy Redeemer Catholic School. Gifts can be made in a single contribution or pledged and paid in installments.
Today many businesses have matching gift programs that will double or even triple an employee contribution. Some companies match the gifts of spouses and retirees as well, greatly increasing the impact of a donation. Matching gift information is available from your Human Resources office or the Advancement Office.
Gifts in Kind
These non-cash gifts are items that the school needs and uses including, but not limited to, office supplies, computer equipment or printing services.
Gifts of securities, stock or bonds benefit the donor and the school. This type of gift is tax-deductible and the donor may avoid paying capital gains tax on the appreciated stock or security.
The most common planned gift is through a donor bequest, trusts, gift annuities, real estate, memorial gifts, life insurance and other financial instruments. A codicil naming Holy Redeemer Catholic School as a beneficiary can be added to an existing will.
