WAYS TO GIVE
"For it is in giving that we receive"
- St. Francis of Assisi
Our commitment to excellence in all we do requires able leadership, strong programs, dedicated staff and ample resources. It is the goal of the Advancement Office of Lansing Catholic High School to support these efforts through the creation of a comprehensive network of financial and community support. We strive to build lasting relationships with students, families, alumni, friends and all our community members to ensure that Lansing Catholic High School remains a viable educational choice for all who wish to attend.
As we experience the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, many of you have reached out and asked, "How can we help?" Your selflessness during such a time of uncertainty is inspiring, and your support is definitely needed. Not knowing how many additional families may require financial support in the form of tuition assistance or how Lansing Catholic's budget will be impacted by this crisis, we have established the Perseverance Fund. This does not include cleaning supplies, face masks, disinfectants and more, that we've already purchased, to keep our students and faculty safe.
Please know that your gift will be greatly needed and appreciated in the months to come. To see the list of urgent needs click here. To make a donation click here. For additional information please contact Jean Morgan in Advancement at firstname.lastname@example.org or 517-267-2114.
Lansing Catholic Annual Fund Appeal
Lansing Catholic Annual Fund gifts help make up the difference between tuition revenues and the increasing costs of running a quality Catholic high school. These dollars help fund student financial aid, support services, faculty salaries, academic programs, facilities and grounds maintenance and much more. Annual Fund gifts, raised each year from alumni, parents, corporations, and friends of Lansing Catholic, help us meet our current operating expenditures. Lansing Catholic Annual Fund gifts are typically cash gifts paid in a lump sum or in installments.
Lansing Catholic Gap Grant Assistance
The Lansing Catholic Gap Grant covers the difference between the cost to educate and the actual tuition charged. We know that our tuition is already a sacrifice for many of our families. We count on our generous donors to help fill the gap between the cost to educate and our tuition rate by donating to LCHS's Gap Grant Assistance. The difference between the cost to educate and tuition is $1,500 for the 2020-2021 school year. A tax deductible donation of any amount is greatly appreciated to help fill this gap.
Long Term and Planning Giving
Long Term Giving - Gifts made over time for specific purposes, such as those made during building campaigns like the Vision 20/20 Campaign. These gifts usually begin with a pledge and are followed by a defined payment over a specified time period.
Planned Giving - These gifts are commonly part of a will and can provide significant dollars for our school. Planned gifts are a major factor in building long term stability for Lansing Catholic High School. Please contact Jean Morgan, Director of Advancement to learn more.
Individual and Organization Gifts - An individual or organization can make a gift to Lansing Catholic High School at any time and in many ways, such as cash, check, credit/debit card, and online. Gifts can be made to Vision 20/20 Campaign, the Lansing Catholic Annual Fund, GAP Grant Fund, or the Father Mac Tuition Assistance Fund.
Matching Gifts - Participating companies match (sometimes as much as four times) the amount of dollars their employees or retirees give to Lansing Catholic High School. Please contact your Human Resource representative to ask if your company provides matching gifts for charity. For more information on how matching gifts work, please visit here.
Gifts to Honor or Memorialize a Loved One - Any gift can be made in Honor of a special person (mother, father) or special event (birthday, anniversary) or in Memory of a deceased relative, classmate, or friend. Memorial gifts can be made at any time and in any amount.
