Each and every gift that is given to Blessed Trinity Catholic High School, regardless of the amount, holds an immeasurable level of importance to the school.
All gifts are tax-deductible as allowed by law. Careful planning of your gift can not only help to maximize the gift that you make to the school, but also your personal goals as well. Legal and financial advisors can best help you determine the type of gift most advantageous and appropriate for you to make.
There are many different methods that donors may choose to fund their gift:
- Cash, Checks, Credit Cards - Your gift provides immediate tax savings through deductions and provides the school with funds for current use. Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express are all accepted.
- Securities - Some donors choose to transfer stock to BT as their gift each year. Contact the Development Office to make these arrangements.
- Matching Gifts - A matching gift is when an employer matches the charitable contribution made by an employee or the spouse of an employee. This can multiply your gift to the school by simply completing the appropriate form from your company. Click here to view a list of companies that have matched donations to BT in recent years.
