Support CEF Student Scholarships

The demand for tuition assistance has never been greater among our Catholic schools. You can help fund scholarships for low-income students this year in many ways. Contact us to discuss any of the gifts below or donate now.

Note: The Coronavirus Relief Bill of 2020 includes an above-the-line deduction (universal or non-itemizer deduction that applies to all taxpayers) for total charitable contributions of up to $300. The incentive applies to contributions made in 2020 to claim on tax forms next year. The bill also lifts the existing cap on annual contributions for those who itemize, raising it from 60 percent of adjusted gross income to 100 percent. For corporations, the bill raises the annual limit from 10 percent to 25 percent. Learn more about benefits for individuals and families here. 

You can support the Catholic Education Foundation with gifts including:

  • Gifts by cash, check or credit via online installments (monthly, quarterly, annually, etc.)
  • Gifts of stocks or bonds
  • Gifts from an IRA - such as your Required Minimum Distribution or Qualified Charitable Distributions
  • Distribution from your Donor Advised Fund
  • Real estate, property, vehicles, etc.
  • Gifts from bequests/wills, trusts or estates
  • Matching gifts from employers
  • In memory of a loved one, or to honor an alumnus, class, teacher or priest
  • In honor of a birthday, anniversary, wedding
