You can contribute to our Annual Fund quickly and securely online using any major credit card.
The Ignite Fund
The Ignite Fund is the cornerstone of giving to Rosary High School. This fund comprises unrestricted giving from all sources that support all school programs and activities. Teacher salaries, scholarship aid, library books, technology and building maintenance are all funded in part by annual giving. Without a vibrant Ignite Fund, tuition would have to be raised to support these programs, thus the Ignite Fund enables the school to keep tuition at an affordable level for families.
Capital gifts are gifts specifically restricted (by the donor) for capital needs that include endowment funds as well as funds for construction or renovations of permanent facilities.
Endowment funds ensure Rosary's future as an institution of the highest quality. Gifts specified for endowment purposes can be designated to support scholarships, teacher salaries, or general purposes, as well as new program development.
A gift in memory of someone you love or admire can be a particularly meaningful way to contribute to Rosary. A memorial gift may be made to the Annual Fund or as a capital gift and may be restricted or unrestricted.
Gifts in Kind
Non-cash gifts of property such as computers, books, scientific equipment, art materials, etc. also make important gifts. The fair market value of such items, determined by the donor, is deductible for income tax purposes. A formal appraisal is required by the IRS for gifts in kind valued at over $5,000.
Gifts of Securities
A donor that owns appreciated securities can benefit in two ways by making a gift of securities to Rosary High School. First, they will be able to claim a charitable income tax deduction for the full value of the shares, and second, they will be able to avoid the capital gains tax that would have been due if they sold the shares.
