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 2020-2021 school year is $105,000. Below is our progress:

$50,411      48%

Class Challenge

$17,465 of $30,000 raised

The Madonna Class Challenge originated when involved alumni came to the Madonna administration in early 2019 with an idea: to begin a grassroots class challenge to raise financial aid funds for students who need assistance to attend Madonna High School. The effort lasted for eight weeks and brought in just over $30,000. Fellow alumni contacts helped the news spread through letters, emails, text messages, and conversations.

The funds that were generously donated were set aside to give to students that would otherwise not be able to attend Madonna High School due to financial reasons.

Special recognition to the class of 1960, who was small, but mighty with 3 donors that brought in $10,300! Also to the class of 1966, who had the highest number from their class participate with 17 individuals.

If you would like to join the challenge this year, please fill out the form below. Thank you for supporting our Blue Dons!

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.

Using real estate, such as your home, farm or commercial property, to fund a gift allows you to preserve your cash assets, receive significant tax and income advantages, and make a larger charitable gift than anticipated.

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.
