WAYS TO GIVE
Many donors choose to make special designated gifts to St. Austin Catholic School that are outside the annual operating budget. These gifts provide enhancements to the academic program. For example, gifts may be made to financial aid, academic and athletic programs, the arts and cultural enrichment, faculty professional development, technology and physical plant enhancements. Donors may also wish to make a gift in honor or in memory of a loved one.

Gifts of Stock
It is often more tax-wise to contribute stock rather than cash. Gifts of appreciated stock help you avoid paying capital gains tax on the stock’s increased value. Additionally, you receive an income-tax deduction for the stock’s full, fair-market value on the date you made the gift.
