An endowment gift to St. Thomas High School today provides a brighter picture for our future. When you make a donation to our endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.

Endowment donations are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to address immediate needs at St. Thomas. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support.

An Example of How It Works

Older couple with younger couple walking Longtime supporters Susan and Charlie have two goals: First, they want to make sure St. Thomas continues to receive support after they're gone. Second, they want to memorialize Charlie's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jones.

Susan and Charlie make a $25,000 donation to St. Thomas, which we invest, and each year, a portion of the income from the invested money will be used to support our mission in honor of the Joneses. Plus, Susan and Charlie get a federal income tax charitable deduction on their taxes because they made a lump-sum gift.
