Tampa Catholic is a self-supporting school. Our income comes from two sources - tuition charged to our students and donations from TC alumni, parents and community friends. We receive no direct financial support from the Diocese of St. Petersburg.
Each of us, whether we are alumni, parents, or friends of Tampa Catholic High School, shares the responsibility of continuing our traditions of Faith, Excellence & Family. By making a donation, you inspire our students and give them the tools they need to succeed in today's world. Your generosity keeps the vision of our founders and those who came before us strong. Invest in Tampa Catholic, and invest in the future.
Ways to support Tampa Catholic High School:
Gifts of Cash
A gift of cash (or check) is the simplest and most immediate way to give to Tampa Catholic High School. Cash gifts may be given outright or pledged. Checks should be made payable to Tampa Catholic High School. An unrestricted gift for the greatest needs of the school is of a particular benefit, but gifts may be designated for specific purposes.
Gifts to remember or honor a relative or friend are a wonderful way to assist the school's efforts. Acknowledgment will be made to the family of the deceased.
You may wish to make your donations to Tampa Catholic in convenient monthly or quarterly installments. This is easily accomplished by using our secure online donation link on the website. You may have the installments processed through your credit card or bank account.
Gifts of Stock
Common stock or other securities are appropriate gifts to be transferred to the Tampa Catholic High School. Gifts of appreciated securities may interest donors who have held stock and have seen its value increase significantly. An outright gift of appreciated securities is exempt from capital gains tax and, in most cases, the full fair market value of the securities at the time of transfer can be claimed as a charitable gift deduction. For official tax purpose verification please check with your tax advisor.
Thousands of companies match gifts of employees to educational institutions. The donor fills out a form supplied by his or her company and sends it to Tampa Catholic along with his or her gift. Matching gifts are credited to the donors’ records; for example, a $500 gift accompanied by a matching-gift form from a company, which matches 1:1 will make a $1,000 gift from the donor.
The Tampa Catholic High School will receive gifts of real estate; including land, personal residences and commercial properties under certain circumstances.
A memorial gift can be outlined in your will or added as a codicil. This allows you to perpetuate your personal dedication and remember the good works of the Tampa Catholic High School.
You can leave:
- A percentage of your estate
- The residue of your estate
- Identified property
- A specific dollar amount
