Ways to Give

Aquinas Annual Fund

Contributions to the Aquinas Annual Fund help meet immediate needs of the school. Our goal for the 2017-2018 school year is to raise $110,000 for annual operating expenses.

Silent Shamrocks

These donations provide tuition assistance to Catholic families in need.

Endowment Giving

These are funds to grow by. Gifts to the Endowment Fund are placed in professionally managed investment accounts. The annual interest income earned on endowment funds is used to fund scholarships and other needs of the school.*

*Memorial and Honorarium gifts to honor a family member, special friend, or loved one may be made to any account. Please make note of your tribute when making your donation so their families can be notified.

Matching Gifts

These are donations made by participating employers that can double or triple your contributions. Check with your employer's Human Resource Department for details.

GRACE Scholarships

These are funds to provide Aquinas students with tuition assistance. Georgia taxpayers can transfer their tax dollars to the approved student scholarship organization and receive a 100% credit against their state taxes. The donation can also be claimed as a charitable deduction on the federal return. Click HERE to download the application and find out more.

IRA Charitable Rollover Gifts

You may be looking for a way to make a big difference to help further Aquinas' mission. If you are 70-1/2 or older you may also be interested in a way to lower the income and taxes from your IRA withdrawals. An IRA charitable rollover is a way you can support Aquinas and benefit this year.
