So Many Ways to Give to St. Bernadette School

    Each year, St. Bernadette School relies upon the generosity of our families, parishioners, alumni, local businesses, foundations, and friends to support our school and help close the gap between what tuition covers and what it actually costs to educate each student. The actual per pupil expenditure is $7,300.00. Our annual fundraising activities and charitable donations result in a $1,375.00 subsidy for each student.

     There are many ways that you can support the mission of St. Bernadette School. Here are a few: 

    Annual Fund

    The Annual Fund provides critical unrestricted operating support for the school. Funds are used for academic enrichment programs, technology, tuition assistance, utilities and building maintenance, teacher salaries, and wish list items, to name just a few.

     Store/Buying Programs

    You can help raise money for St. Bernadette School simply by shopping! Cleick to see details about different Store/buying incentive programs!  

    Tuition Assistance Fund

    St. Bernadette School has awarded over $50,000 in Tuition Assistance annually.  The funding had been provided by the St. Bernadette Capital Campaign which ended in 2010.  We are now seeking “angels” to contribute to the newly established St. Bernadette Tuition Assistance Fund.  Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the Tuition Assistance Fund to assist families in providing a Catholic education for their children. To find out more information select How I Can Help.

     Memorial or Honor Gifts 

    A gift in memory or in honor of someone special can be a particularly meaningful way to contribute to the Annual Fund. 

    Capital Gifts

    Capital Gifts are specifically restricted by the donor for capital needs such as construction, renovation, or repair of permanent facilities.  

    Endowment Funds 

    Endowment funds ensure the financial future of the school and can be designated to support tuition assistance, teacher salaries, a specific department or program, or for general operating support.  

    Gifts in Kind 

    Non-cash gifts of property such as computer and technology equipment, art supplies, books, science equipment, and teacher wish list items are an important way to support the school.


    Remembering St. Bernadette School in your will is a special way to leave a legacy and is an investment in those who will carry on the mission of the school. It also reduces the taxable portion of your estate.
