Ways to Give to Seton
There is no greater investment than a child's education.
Gifts of any size are significant to Seton Catholic School because they support the school's mission, students, and programs. Your generosity will help us to continue to develop the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, social, cultural, and physical well being of each and every student. Your support helps limit Seton's reliance on tuition revenue and assists us in maintaining the superior values and education for which Seton is known. Seton is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. All gifts are tax-deductible.
Gifts of Cash
The majority of gifts received by Seton come in the form of cash. Any cash gifts to Seton are tax deductible for the full amount of the gift as allowed by law. Donations can be made by checks payable to Seton Catholic School.
A gift of appreciated securities that have been held for more that one year is frequently the most tax-wise way to give. For detailed information about transferring securities to Seton, please call the school business office at (309)764-5418.
Many companies offer programs that match donations to Seton School by their employees, directors, employees' spouses, or retirees. This is a great way to double the amount of your gift to the school. Please contact your company to find out if it offers a matching gift.
Planned giving is a way to contribute to Seton through estate planning. Estate planning includes naming Seton Catholic School as a beneficiary in your will or forming a more complex trust arrangement. You may designate Seton as a shared beneficiary on a life insurance policy, and IRA annuity, employee group term insurance, or retirement plan.
Memorial and Honors
Memorial gifts are given in memory of those who have gone before us. Honor gifts can be given to commemorate a special occasion.
Gifts to Seton can come on other forms as well. You may want to consider a gift of tangible personal property that can be used to carry out our educational mission such as construction materials, books, and computers.
Birdies for Charity
The Birdies for Charity Fund provide bonus dollars to participating charities based on revenues earned from the John Deere Classic. Make a one-time flat donation or pledge one cent or more per birdie and designate Seton Catholic School as the charity you are donating for. Seton's bird number is 703. Pledge forms can be found at www.birdiesforcharity.com.
Regardless of your giving method, or the amount of your gift, Seton Catholic School is grateful for your support.
