legacies - introduction
The students at St. Luke School deserve your financial support. The school itself and the staff specifically provide children and their families with a foundation for academic achievement, discipline, character building, and spiritual development. For more than 62 years, St. Luke School has educated the whole child and provided a caring community for families.
While the school strives to balance its budget through fundraising and parish support, the costs of education continue to escalate. Rising tuition costs cause families to question whether they can afford Catholic education for their children, and as a result, more now apply for tuition assistance than ever before.
You can make a difference by including a gift in your estate plans to St. Luke School directly or to the St. Luke Endowment. Endowment gifts are invested through the St. Luke Endowment. Named Endowments can be established with a gift of $10,000 or more, and proceeds will be distributed when the fund reaches $25,000. The principal remains intact and a portion of the return on the investment is used to provide scholarships to deserving St. Luke students. Contact the Development Office for information.
We leverage your support and make sure that assistance reaches families and programs that need it. Thank you for considering a gift to St. Luke School so that we may continue the tradition of good work for our students. That is truly a rewarding and remarkable gift to us! We can’t do it without your support. We appreciate any and all gifts.
