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.

Madonna High School is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization under IRS regulations (55-0392771).

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 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

This is the 6th year that Madonna will participate in One Mission One Day to Make a Difference. This is a 24-hour giving day organized by the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston to help the Catholic Schools. Over $60,000 has been raised in 5 years to help student programs, education costs, and upkeep of the physical plant. Visit the link below on May 7th to make a gift!

Give to Madonna High School | One Mission One Day

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.
