Donate Online With Credit Card
With your credit card, giving online is both easy and secure. Presentation of Mary School welcomes one-time gifts and recurring gifts through our secure online donation portal. Every gift matters and makes a difference. Thank you for your consideration. The list below gives an explanation of each donation choice that can be made online:
1. “Raise Your Hand” Annual Giving Program: Contributions made to the annual giving program support our current budgeted operating costs.
The Annual Fund is a yearly campaign to raise unrestricted funds for our school. Gifts received from this appeal help us narrow the difference between tuition and the actual cost of a Presentation of Mary School education. Additionally, a successful Annual Fund campaign allows the school to address needs as they arise. Gifts to the Annual Fund support essentially every aspect of the school, including:
- Classroom and curriculum resources
- Co-Curricular activities
- Innovative technology
- Faculty and Staff development
- Security and building enhancements
The goal of the Annual Fund is to advance the mission and the long-term viability of Presentation of Mary. The funds raised help to provide academic extras and enriching programs that tuition dollars simply cannot cover. The gifts received from this appeal also allow the school to be prepared for costs of other necessities that arise. The Annual Fund is the best way possible for current parents, alumni, the family of alumni, grandparents, parishioners, friends, and organizations to help make a financial difference in the future of Presentation of Mary School.
2. School Angel Tuition Assistance Program: A donation made to our students for tuition assistance. There are three different levels for our School Angel Program.
These are donors that are able to contribute $5,000+ to help make it possible for a student to attend Presentation of Mary School for an entire year who otherwise would not be able to. These “Guardian” angels are assigned to a particular student(s). This gift will cover a student’s full tuition for a year. The identity of the Guardian Angel remains confidential in all communications. Guardian Angels are also remembered in the prayers of the child they sponsor as well as those of the of the school community.
The “Seraphim” angels are supporters who want to step forward in generosity and make Catholic education possible for everyone in need. These can be assigned to specific students or given to the student body at large. You will be remembered with gratitude in the prayers of the school community.
Every contribution helps! Presentation School is exceedingly grateful to all who contribute in any way to the tuition Assistance program. Our “Cherubim” angels will be remembered in the prayers of the school community.
