Help us “Let Loretto be Loretto forever!”

Each year we rely on the generosity of alumnae, parents, grandparents, former parents and grandparents, and friends of Loretto Academy to contribute to our Academy.  All gifts made to Loretto Academy are a demonstration of the support and validation of our mission and work throughout the community and help to close the gap between the true cost of educating a Loretto Academy student and tuition.  Generosity shown through your financial support has a direct and immediate impact on all aspects of Loretto Academy – Academics, Tuition Assistance, Fine Arts, Athletics, Buildings and Grounds. 

Gifts of Cash, Credit Card of Check

The most direct and easiest way to provide immediate support to Loretto is to make a gift by cash, credit card, or check. Spread out the payment terms of your investment, with the flexible option of making annual, semiannual, quarterly, or monthly payments.  All credit card gifts are secure and may be made through the Advancement Office or at events.  Checks should be made payable to “Loretto Academy.” Gifts are tax deductible for federal income tax purposes to the extent allowed by law.

Matching Gifts

Many companies offer matching gift programs that allow their employees to double or even triple their gifts.  Current and retired employees, or sometimes even their spouses, may be eligible for matching gifts programs.  Please visit your company’s human resources department and ask for a matching gift form to include with your charitable contribution to Loretto.

Gifts of Securities

Stocks, mutual funds, bonds, and other securities given to Loretto Academy may provide a considerable savings in capital gains taxes for the donor.  Please notify the Advancement Office if you are making a securities gift so we may appropriately recognize your gift as well as place it in a designated fund.

Gifts of Real Estate

Gifts of real estate provide the same advantages as gifts of securities. By deeding real property directly to Loretto Academy, the donor provides a meaningful impact on the school, benefits from significant tax savings, and does not suffer any decrease in regular cash flow.

Gifts In Kind and Talent

Any trade of services or goods can be accepted and given accredited fair market value.

Planned Gifts and Long Term Investments 

Planned gifts, including bequests, trust arrangements, life income gifts, and gifts of life insurance are an excellent way to make a lifelong testimony to an institution that has profoundly impacted your life.  These types of charitable contributions are important to the longevity of the institution and provide support for endowments, scholarships, and special projects. 

Bequests and Testamentary Trusts

Giving through an estate provides the school with a gift of a lifetime. Gifts can be made by adding a codicil to an existing will or by writing a new will. This method of giving is fairly simple and may reduce the federal estate tax liability for your heirs. 

Charitable gift annuities (CGA), a life income gift, are win-win investment options for donors. Through a CGA, a donor receives an immediate charitable income tax deduction as well as an annuity payment over the remainder of the donor's life.

Life Insurance

You may name Loretto as a beneficiary under your policy.
