Giving Through Scholarship Fund

Thanks to your generosity, many current students are given the gift of a Gibault Catholic High School education, a choice they would not be able to afford without your help. Your scholarship contribution is a great blessing both to those students, and to Gibault as a whole, as our campus is enriched by a larger student body.

Scholarship funds are exclusively used to help the maximum number of students afford a quality Gibault college-prep education.


Current Scholarships

Father Edwin Hustedde Scholarship Fund

The Fr. Ed Hustedde Scholarship Fund is an endowed scholarship, with a small percentage a year used to assist current families in need.

General Scholarship Fund

Other scholarship donations are used as needed, dollar-for-dollar, in the current school year for families in need of your assistance.

Every Gift Makes a Difference.

Other Giving Options

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 if you have any questions.

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, thus doubling your impact on 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 if you have any questions.

In Kind Gifts and Auction Donations

Another way to support Gibault Catholic High School is with items or sponsorship 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’s students. These donations can include gift cards, items, and experiences that are unique. If you have the ability to help with any of these, it is greatly appreciated! Please contact Andrea.

At times, some sports or clubs are in need of special items (ex. a new-to-us school bus and a turf putting green were recent donations.)  These items are a fantastic gift. Please contact Andrea ( if you have any special requests, would like to help a certain activity or sport, or are in a position to help with pricing on certain types of items.
