Opportunities to Make a Difference

One of the reasons why Assumption Catholic Schools continues to grow stronger and more highly regarded every year is because of the volunteer and financial support it receives from current parents, past parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends. It is impossible to name the countless ways our supporters give–in both small and large ways–that have an enormous and lasting impact. Whether through volunteerism or financial support–we are grateful that the tradition of generosity and commitment continues, enriching the school and our students.

Ways to Give

There are a variety of ways to make a difference in the lives of Assumption students.

 

Guardian Angel Fund

The Guardian Angel Fund is designed to be a safety net for families who unexpectedly find themselves in financial crises due to sudden loss of income from illness or other events beyond their control. Last year for example, several families experienced serious medical calamities with the result that they were not able to meet their tuition contributions. Generous citizens came forward and paid the remaining balance so that the parents could continue to give their children the gift of a private, Catholic education. If you would like to contribute to this fund in order that we can continue to build up a reserve, please fill out the form offered below and send in your donation. All donors remain anonymous.

Sponsor a Student

Catholic schools teach students morality and learning skills that will help them live happy lives. Each student is taught in a personalized atmosphere conducive to success. Students are taught the ethics to develop talents and make good decisions in order to meet life's many challenges while respecting others.

 

It is the desire of our Diocesan Bishop that no student be denied a Catholic education because of finances. The Sponsor a Student program will provide tuition assistance to families who may otherwise not be able to send their children to Catholic schools.

 

We must now return to the greater Catholic community asking for your financial help. Would you consider making a gift on behalf of those families and students who are in need of financial assistance?

Memorial and Honor Gifts

You may want to remember someone who is living (honor) or deceased (memorial) with a special gift to Assumption Catholic Schools. We will acknowledge all gifts, and will notify the family of the person to be memorialized, or the person to be honored.

 

Planned Giving and Estate Options

Estate planning is necessary to ensure that your assets pass during life or at your death to your intended beneficiaries in such amounts and at such times as will achieve your objectives while minimizing taxes. When making any estate plans, a qualified estate planning professional should advise you. A representative of the Assumption Catholic Schools would be happy to discuss any options without obligation.


Royal Fund

    You can ensure the advancement of our mission by making Assumption Catholic Schools Catholic Schools a charitable priority in your life through a gift to our Royal Fund.  Such gifts are renewable and unrestricted, helping to benefit each Assumption Catholic Schools student.  These funds help bridge the gap between our tuition price and the actual per pupil cost of education. This reduced tuition eases the burden on families who would like to give their children the opportunity to attend a Catholic school and allows us to continue offering the best educational experience.  Such an experience blends a strong academic curriculum with spirituality and character formation.
               
    We invite you to help begin yet another tradition: a strong history of alumni gifts to the Royal Fund.  With your help, this tradition will grow through the years and greatly benefit future Assumption Catholic Schools students.  Any gift you can give is a wonderful way to express your support for Assumption Catholic Schools.

     

    We assure you that Assumption Catholic Schools remain committed to preparing young men and women to be compassionate, responsible, faith-filled people capable of making a difference in the world today.   Thank you in advance for your gift and continued support.
