red arrow Outright Gifts

Gifts of cash or securities provide Gibault with much-needed financial assistance. They have an immediate impact on the school because they can be used to support any current need. You can designate these funds to the Annual Fund, Scholarships, or a specific project or activity. Contact Andrea (abiske@gibaulthawks.com) if you have any questions.

red arrow Matching Gifts

Many companies encourage their employees to be charitable by offering Matching Gift programs. These companies will match the gifts their employees make to non-profit organizations like Gibault Catholic High School, typically at a 1:1 ratio. This is a considerable benefit provided by your employer, which doubles the dollar amount of your gift, doubling the impact for our students. When you make a gift, we would be honored if you would check if your employer (or your spouse’s employer) participates in such a program. Check with your Human Resources Department, or contact Andrea (abiske@gibaulthawks.com) if you have any questions.

red arrow Memorial or Planned Gifts

Gifts can be designated to the endowment fund, scholarships, or to a project of the donor’s choice. You can donate cash, securities, stocks, or designate Gibault Catholic High School as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, will, trust, or IRA.

red arrow In Kind Gifts and Auction Donations

Another way to support Gibault Catholic High School is with items or opportunities for an event or activity.

Donations for our Oktoberfest Dinner Auction and Summer Classic Golf Tournament are accepted year round, and are a great way to help Gibault raise funds at our events. These donations can include gift cards, items, and experiences that are unique. If you have the ability to help with any of these items your help is greatly appreciated! Please contact Andrea (abiske@gibaulthawks.com) if you have any questions or able to donate an item.

At times, some sports or clubs are in need of special items (e.g. a pop-up tent for cross-country and materials for our new alfalfa test plot were recent donations). These items, when needed, are a fantastic gift. Please contact Andrea (abiske@gibaulthawks.com) if you have any special requests, would likely to help a certain activity or sport, or are in a position to help with pricing on certain types of items.

No matter which area you choose to support, you help to enhance every part of what our students experience, and help to maintain the uniquely caring community that has defined the family of Gibault Catholic High School.
