Ways to Make a Difference
Scholarship Assistance Program
Growing our assistance program so we can increase the amount of financial aid awarded each year to students is an important part of our Strategic Plan. To defray the financial burden of tuition on the student and the family, Cristo Rey High School works to provide direct financial aid to 92% of the student body, offsetting an average of 74% ($1,700) of the family’s financial responsibility. In total, over $550,000 of aid is provided to our students. Scholarship awards are based on family need, and range from less than 10% of the family obligation to full support.
Normal support of the Cristo Rey High School operating budget, an important need and high priority for the school, is usually given through these means. Gifts may also be restricted for a specific purpose, or to capital or endowed programs. The most common forms of gift giving are by cash, check, or credit card.
In Memory of a Loved One / To Honor a Loved One
It is a privilege for Cristo Rey High School to honor and memorialize members of the Cristo Rey family. Gifts "in honor of" or "in memory of" will receive special handling. Donors will be acknowledged for their tax deductible gift and family members will be notified of all gifts made in the name of a loved one.
Many businesses and corporations match personal gifts to educational institutions made by employees, retirees, and their family members. Your own company’s personnel office will be happy to provide you with information about its matching gift program.
Gifts of appreciated securities may be deducted at fair market value on the date of transfer to the school. These gifts are valued at the mean of the high and low quotations on the date of transfer. Gifts such as these may produce significant tax advantages to the donor as long-term securities may have appreciated in value.
Gift annuities, life insurance, charitable remainder trusts, lead trusts, and bequests are examples of planned giving. By making such a gift to Cristo Rey you not only contribute to the school’s future, in many instances you may enjoy a tax deduction or avoid capital gains or estate taxes.
