Mission Statement

Holy Redeemer Catholic School is a faith-centered community, dedicated to living the principles of the Catholic Tradition rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our school's environment and curriculum challenge the full potential of each child and embrace a visionary approach toward academic excellence and life-long learning . 

Supporting Holy Redeemer

Holy Redeemer makes every attempt to keep tuition increases minimal while providing an exceptional academic program within a faith-filled environment. In response to feedback from our stakeholders, fund-raising is limited to two major requests each year—the annual appeal and the school’s annual gala. These events support our operating budget, allow us to respond to current needs, make improvements which benefit our students and assist us in providing a high quality education.

Annual Appeal

The Annual Appeal is the foundation of giving to Holy Redeemer Catholic School bridging the gap between the tuition charged and the full cost to educate our students. Each year, the Annual Appeal is an indispensable part of the school’s operating budget, enabling the school to fulfill its commitment to academic programs. Gifts made to the Annual Appeal are fully tax-deductible since no goods or services are received by the donor. 100% participation from faculty and staff, families, grandparents and alumni is a valuable endorsement of our mission and makes us a stronger candidate for foundation and corporate grants.

Gala

Our annual Gala is a fun-filled evening for the purpose of supporting our school and its programs. Supporting the Gala through your attendance, purchasing of car raffle tickets, becoming a sponsor or donating items to be auctioned makes this event successful and benefits our students.

Matching Gifts

Double or triple your gift to Holy Redeemer with a matching gift. Many companies match charitable donations made by their employees, spouses and retirees, greatly increasing the impact of a donation. Matching gift information is available from the Development Office.

Planned Giving

Planned gifts include provisions for Holy Redeemer through donor bequests, trusts, gift annuities, real estate, memorial gifts, life insurance and other financial instruments. A codicil naming Holy Redeemer Catholic School as a beneficiary can be added to an existing will. Planned gifts allow the donor to make a statement of support that will become part of your legacy. 

Restricted Giving

Gifts to Holy Redeemer may be directed to specific school programs or projects. These donations will be used for the specified program or project. Please contact the Development Office for a current programs or projects which may benefit from your donation. We strongly encourage our families to make gifts to the Annual Appeal prior to making contributions to a Restricted Giving fund.
