Saint Joseph Scholarship Fund

In these challenging economic times, many parents wishing to provide their children a Catholic education are financially unable to do so. The Saint Joseph Scholarship Fund enables children with limited financial means to attend Saint Joseph Catholic School and receive a superior education rooted in Catholic values. Your tax deductible donation brings not only the wonderful gift of a Catholic education, but it is an investment in the future of our Catholic faith.

Above & Beyond

The actual cost to educate a child at Saint Joseph Catholic School has always been greater than the requested tuition (usually by around $1,500). If you have children enrolled here and have been blessed with the ability to pay more than the requested tuition, we ask you to prayerfully consider doing so.

Planned Giving

Over the course of a lifetime, many of our donors give to the people and places that matter to them.  This may include specific gifts through your will, naming Saint Joseph Catholic School as a beneficiary on life insurance policies, tax free gifts directly from your IRA, and other strategies such as, gift annuities, charitable trusts, charitable business bailouts, land-related assets and more.  Using planned giving, you can  leave a piece of your legacy at Saint Joseph Catholic School while ensuring the schools continued growth.
Planned gifts can take many forms, and some gifts may even reduce your taxes or pay you income. If you want to help Saint Joseph Catholic School ht now and in the future, work with us to plan for it today. Call or email us for more information at 970-484-1171 or
