Annual Giving

What is Annual Giving?

Annual Giving is a philanthropic giving program that helps bridge the gap between the actual cost to educate each child and what is paid in tuition.  The difference for the 2020-2021 school year is $1,455.00 per student.  With each family’s participation in the program it allows Gesu to retain talented faculty, provide strong academic programs, enhance technology needs and focus on spiritual development.  This year, we are asking all families to participate at a level they feel is appropriate.

  • All families are encouraged to participate.
  • Pledges can be paid over the term of the school year.
  • Any family member, parent, grandparent, etc. can make a contribution.
  • Your gift is tax deductible to the full extent of the law. Please consult your tax advisor.

Does my gift make a difference? 

Your gift has an immediate impact on our school, most importantly on our students.  It allows us to continue to have resources to attract and retain the highest quality educators, offer strong academic programs and extracurriculars, maintain our Catholic identity and so much more.

Why should I give to the Annual Giving Program? 

Contributing to the program demonstrates your support and commitment to Gesu School.  Every gift counts and will be used during the academic school year.  All gifts, large and small, truly matter.

We hope that you will help us continue the legacy and tradition of Gesu. Your partnership with us will help keep tuition at an affordable level.  Participation at any level is vital for Gesu to be able to continue to be the vibrant school and parish that it is today. We hope you will prayerfully discern the Annual Giving Program and make a philanthropic gift to the best of your ability.
