Ways to Give
St Joseph High School is deeply grateful to our families, friends, and our many benefactors. Our academic success is directly tied to the generous support and constant encouragement of all who believe in the mission. Annual contributions currently account for 15% of the school's budget.
We understand that there are as many ways of giving back as there are alumni and so we offer you a variety of ways of renewing your commitment.
For assistance with any of these options please call Michele Gomez Krasznai '89, CFRE Director of Advancement & Alumni Affairs, at 203.378.9378 x325, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Contributions to the St Joseph Fund can be easily adjusted to the donor’s financial situation and philanthropic interests.
A gift of appreciated securities, with publicly traded stock or from a private company, may provide greater tax advantages than gifts of cash. The donor can deduct the current fair-market value as a charitable gift, and completely avoid capital gains tax on the appreciation.

The St Joseph High School Endowment Fund is a collection of funds (unrestricted and restricted) that supports students, faculty, staff and programs. Endowment growth is crucial to the success of St Joseph High School as it helps maintain the schools reasonable tuition levels while continuing to provide excellent programs and exceptional faculty and staff, which results in smaller, more personalized classes and plenty of co-curricular offerings. St Joseph High School’s goal of raising $10million for its Endowment Fund can be a reality with your support.
Named Endowment Fund Guidelines
While all gifts to the St Joseph High School Endowment Fund are important and appreciated, a Named Endowment Fund is one that receives special recognition because of its significant level of support. Special recognition and stewardship are provided via the following:
- Annual Public Listing
- Regular Communications
- Use of Name in Public Forums
- Financial reports
- Benefit reports (award/scholarship recipient, etc.)
In general, the minimum level of support that earns special recognition as a Named Endowment Fund is $50,000, payable outright or over a period of years. Other levels include $1,000,000, $500,000, $250,000, and $100,000.
