St. Francis Borgia High School Ways To GiveThere are many different ways to support St. Francis Borgia Regional High School.  Whether your gift is large or small, designated for a specific purpose or available for annual operating support, outright or deferred, it will help us fulfill our mission “to provide a Catholic education that fosters spiritually, morally, academically, and technologically prepared life-long learners.”

Gifts to Borgia can be made via:

  • Bequests from wills and trusts
  • Charitable gift annuities
  • Securities, real estate and life insurance
  • Charitable remainder and lead trusts

How much should I give?

When planning to make a charitable bequest, reflect on the people and institutions that have been an important part of your life.  Think not only about the institutions that are important now, but also the ones that helped earlier in your life. Many friends with children, consider designating a charitable bequest equal to the percentage one child would receive. Other friends use the tithing concept, by which 10% of the estate goes to charity. Many people like the concept of “children, church, and charity” as a means of charitable giving.

Whether we realize it or not, we really own nothing. All blessings and possessions are bestowed upon us by God and belong to God alone. We will all be judged by how well we have served God’s people and God’s world, not just ourselves or our immediate families. Remembering St. Francis Borgia Regional High School in your estate plan is one way of demonstrating that your have been a good steward and plan to share your many blessings with those who can benefit by receiving a Catholic Education. We ask you to prayerfully reflect on your many blessings and consider remembering St. Francis Borgia Regional High School in your estate plan.
