Giving

 

Why Give?

Since its founding in 1926, Monte Cassino School has been a philanthropic community with a strong tradition of giving. From Annual Fund gifts that make an immediate impact to major, endowed and planned gifts that last for generations, your gifts help to ensure a bright future for Monte Cassino and our students. Your support puts amazing teachers in the classroom, strengthens our impressive academic program and opens doors to deserving students who otherwise could not access a Monte Cassino education. No matter the amount, your gift, every year, makes a difference.

WHAT IS THE ANNUAL FUND/BE A SAINT CAMPAIGN?

Tuition alone does not cover the cost of a Monte Cassino education and the Annual Fund is a yearly campaign that raises funds to help make up the difference between tuition and the actual cost of educating our students. This is the area of greatest need for the School.

WHAT IS CAMPAIGN GIVING?

Unlike the Annual Fund, which is needed for immediate, general operating costs, campaign giving secures the future of the School. Monte Cassino families will be asked to support the School with a campaign gift to help fund capital improvements, endowments and other special projects.

WHAT FINANCIAL SUPPORT IS EXPECTED?

It is our hope and expectation that all Monte Cassino families participate in our fundraising programs. In order for our Annual Fund to reach 100% parent participation, every gift matters. Parents are also asked to support campaign projects during their time at Monte Cassino just as the families of previous generations have given to fund the resources current students enjoy today.

WHEN SHOULD WE GIVE?

The Development Office asks for your support of the Annual Fund beginning in the fall with direct mail pieces, letters and via email. Annual Fund gifts are put directly into the current year's operating budget, so early donations begin working for our students immediately. The Annual Fund year runs from July 1 to June 30 of each year.

HOW MUCH SHOULD WE GIVE?

The School asks that families make Monte Cassino their philanthropic priority while their child(ren) are enrolled here. The exact amount of each family's contribution should be at a level commensurate with the families' financial ability.

HOW DO WE MAKE A GIFT?

Payment methods for gifts include cash, checks, securities, credit cards and recurring gifts. Gifts can be made online, by mail or by contacting the Development Office at 918.746.4120.

ARE GIFTS TAX-DEDUCTIBLE?

All contributions made to Monte Cassino School are tax-deductible to the fullest extenet allowed by law.
