Top Priority: Tuition Assistance

 

Help Fund the gap between financial need and available tuition assistance needs.

Development efforts are critical to the success of St. Pascal Regional Catholic School. As an independent school, St. Pascal Regional Catholic School operates without ongoing financial support from one source. Because tuition alone does not cover the entire cost of each child’s education, we seek support from all stakeholders and friends.

St. Pascal Regional Catholic School functions solely under the financial model of Tuition + Donations = Cost of Education.

Teachers are the heart of St. Pascal Regional Catholic School. They shape the lives of our students and fuel their growth and development each day. The lessons they teach extend beyond the classroom, helping us raise mortally conscious leaders. To recognize and support these important people, the Professional Development Fund was established to fund the staff and resources.

Outstanding teachers are the hallmark of an independent private Catholic school education. Donating to the Professional Development Fund honors our teachers and the impact they make on our children’s lives today – and ensures that commitment to excellence continues in perpetuity.

 

 

Every gift makes a difference and we thank you for your support!

What is an Employee Matching Gift / Fund?

A matching gift, also known as a matching fund or matching donation, is a charitable gift given to The St. Pascal Regional Catholic School by a matching donor (such as an employer), under the provision that an original donor (such as an employee) first makes a gift toward The St. Pascal Catholic School. Corporate Matching funds are an easy way to increase your contribution.
Usually associated with corporate grant makers, employee matching gifts often are dollar-for-dollar, but some companies will give double or even triple the original donation. Some companies may also give matching gifts for employees’ volunteer efforts. Procedures vary with each company. Typically, individuals must submit forms to their employers. They usually can get more information about their matching gift benefits from their human resources department.

What is the Typical Procedure?

As an example scenario, an employee of a bank which matches gifts decides to make a gift to The St. Pascal Catholic School. Since this bank is a matching gift corporation, it will match the donor's $100 gift to The St. Pascal Catholic School at a 1:1 ratio, for a total of $200. In this manner, this donor increases the value of his or her gift simply by participating in the matching program. This is a great way for a donor to double or even triple your gift to the school.

Matching gift programs generally consist of four steps:

  • 1. Individuals donate
  • 2. Donors submit matching gift request to their employer
  • 3. Nonprofits validate grant requests
  • 4. Corporations cut checks
Please reach out to your employer's human resources department to find out if your employer has a matching program.
