A Gift For Catholic Education

During the Christmas season, we think of loved ones and those close to us and work to find or make personal, meaningful gifts for them.  Bishop Carroll Catholic High School offers many ways to give not only to the school, but ways to give to students and families.  Several of these opportunities do not even involve money!

Here are some suggestions for this season of giving.

PRAY

First and foremost, prayer on behalf of our school, students, staff, and families is very much welcomed and encouraged.  One of the greatest gifts we could give one another is to say, “I prayed for you.”  God hears prayers and knows the needs of all!

DONATE A SCHOLARSHIP

Bishop Carroll offers financial aid to qualifying families, and a large number of those funds comes from our alumni and friends annual donations.  Donations are accepted in any amount towards the scholarship fund.  For a $500 commitment for three years ($1500 total), individuals and groups may sponsor a named scholarship.  For more details on named scholarships, please contact the Alumni Office at mccann.annalisa@bishopcarroll.org.

PARTICIPATE IN THE EITC PROGRAM

Instead of sending your state tax dollars to Harrisburg, you can send them to Bishop Carroll through the EITC Program.  One of the best parts of this program is that is costs the individual nothing but a small amount of time!  Contact Alyse Maslonski at alyse@redefiningeducation.org to find out how your tax dollars may be diverted into the scholarship account for Bishop Carroll Catholic High School.

REMEMBER BISHOP CARROLL IN YOUR WILL OR ESTATE

Individuals may place BCCHS as a beneficiary in their will, donate a portion of stock options, and other estate contributions.  Please speak with your financial advisors and attorney regarding the process, and contact Mrs. Weber at weber.lynn@bishopcarroll.org for more information.

PARTICIPATE IN FUNDRAISERS

Fundraisers for various sports and clubs are a common occurrence at Bishop Carroll.  Consider participating in these.  Reach out to a student and ask them what fundraisers are happening, check the website, or contact the main office.

ATTEND EVENTS

From plays to concerts to sporting events, Bishop Carroll hosts a wide array of interests for the public.  Our students are talented in many ways, and we welcome your show of support by attending the events that they work so hard for all year long.

PURCHASE A GIFT CERTIFICATE TO THE HUSKY STORE

The Husky Store has great Bishop Carroll apparel items, as well as other gifts.  If you would like to give someone a gift but are not sure what they would like, gift certificates in any amount are available.  The Husky Store is open during regular school hours and can be accessed through the main office.

SHARE SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS

A great, free way to show support for BCCHS is to share social media posts.  Providing the school and the students with greater exposure highlights what we all know – that Bishop Carroll Catholic High School is an outstanding Catholic institution!

INVITE OTHERS TO CONSIDER BCCHS

Word of mouth is one of the greatest tools in supporting Bishop Carroll.  Talk about your great experiences, and encourage families with school-aged children to consider BCCHS.  Also encourage others to donate and participate in various fundraisers and events.
