St. Gregory School Centennial Endowment
The mission of the St. Gregory Catholic School Centennial Endowment is to offer qualified students tuition assistance to attain a solid education while building Catholic values and creating a lasting legacy for years to come.
The St. Gregory Catholic School Centennial Endowment is a newly formed fund that is intended to help those families that want to instill in their child or children a strong Catholic based education, but cannot take on the full tuition needed to attend St. Gregory School.
Prayer for Generosity
Lord Jesus, teach me to be generous, teach me to serve you as you deserve, to give and not to count the cost, to fight and hot to heed the wounds, to toil and not to seek for rest, to labor and not to seek reward, except that of knowing that I do your will. Amen.
How can you help? Well, first, you can help by continuing to pray for the continued success of St. Gregory School going into the next century. As we all know, the power of prayer has been very helpful in many of our lives and will undoubtedly help in this case. Next, we need your financial help in any way that you can. The goal of this campaign, as set by the Centennial Endowment Committee, is $500,000. In most years that will make available $15,000 to $20,000 for annual aid. That is quite a bit of money, but if every parish and school family would pledge $10 a month for 5 years, we would easily exceed our goal in 4 years. Keep in mind, the more money we raise, there will be more money available for aid. You never know when that time will come when you or someone you know will need that help.
There are many ways to give to the St. Gregory Centennial Endowment Fund:
- Cash gifts and stock gifts
- Through estate planning and wills
- Bequest intentions document program
- Charitable gift annuity program
- St. Gregory endowed fund with diocesan foundation
- IRA donation
- Life insurance
- Life settlement options for existing insurance policies
- Life estate contract
- Charitable trust
- Initiate a St. Gregory Legacy Society
Many of these donations give tax deductions that will give you or your estate immediate or future tax benefits. For further information on any of these giving ideas and opportunities, please contact the school office at (724) 452-9731 and information will be delivered to you.
As we venture into this new campaign, it is our wish that God blesses you, St. Gregory Church and School, and our parish and school communities as we head into the next century.
