Ways to Give
The following are the many ways individuals and businesses can partner with Madonna High School that make our school a better place for our current and future students.
The Blue Don Fund provides money for our annual operating expenses. This Fund subsidizes technology, faculty salaries, athletics, tuition, and general educational needs. The Blue Don Fund helps to meet the actual cost of running our school and educating each student that tuition alone does not cover. The Blue Don Fund coincides with our fiscal year from July 1 and June 30 of each academic year.
The goal for the 2022-2023 school year is $150,000. Below is our progress:
Thank you to those who donated to the Blue Don Fund in 2021-2022. We raised $120,169 to help with the costs of operating Madonna High School!
The 2022 Madonna High School Class Challenge for Tuition Assistance has ended.
Alumni graciously donated $10,385 and a local foundation matched the $10,000 to raise $20,385 to help our students!
Over $70,000 for tuition assistance has been raised since 2019 through the Class Challenge initiative.
We have been greatly humbled by the generosity of our alumni and are extremely grateful for the continued support and dedication to Madonna High School!
Total Giving – $20,385
Thank you to those who donated to One Mission One Day to Make a Difference! We were able to reach $14,000 in donations and get the full $10,000 in matching gifts! These funds will help with technology upgrades to benefit our students and teachers. We are so incredibly grateful for your support and look forward to next May!
Please contact your employer to determine if they participate in a matching gift program. Your employer may be able to increase the size of your gift with a match. Simply obtain a matching gift form from your company. Send the form with your gift to Madonna High School and the Advancement Office will process your gift.
These gifts are made in memory or in honor of a member of the Madonna family. The Advancement Office will notify the family or individual that a gift was made in their memory/honor if the donor wishes. This may also include setting up a fund towards a program of your choosing in memory or honor of a member of the Madonna family.
Stock that has increased in value is a popular asset used for charitable giving, once it has been held for a minimum of one year. A gift of securities to us offers you the chance to help Madonna High School while also realizing important benefits for yourself.
To maximize the value of a retirement account, you may consider making a lifetime gift of its after-tax values to a tax-exempt deferred giving plan.
Likely the nation’s most widely held appreciated asset, Savings Bonds that may have stopped growing can be put to good use. A tax-wise use for your appreciated savings bonds is to support a cause you care about.
A donation of your closely held stock is a great way for you to make a sizable charitable contribution while realizing valuable tax benefits.
These are objects or services that are given to Madonna High School.
Donating your life insurance could be a wonderful way to fulfill your desire to support the mission of Madonna High School. By naming Madonna the beneficiary of an existing policy, you make good use of your resources and expand your ability to make a significant gift.
To make a charitable gift by will, it’s best to meet with your attorney to discuss and update your will. Tell him/her exactly what you want to do and to whom you wish to make a gift. We hope you will tell us when you have named Madonna High School in your will. We would very much like to to thank you for your generosity, however, if you prefer to remain anonymous, we will certainly honor your wishes and your gift will be kept confidential.
If you or your business is interested in investing in Madonna High School to make our school a better place for our current and future students, please contact our Advancement Director, Christine Holmes at 304-723-0545 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
