St Michael's High School Foundation can only provide tuition assistance scholarships with the generous support of its donors. Through management of the endowment, the Foundation can continue to provide tuition assistance perpetually into the future. With the help of general donations and named scholarships, the Foundation can increase its tuition assistance base in any given year.

General Fund Donations

A  general donation provides operating funds to ensure that the Foundation can continue to provide tuition assistance scholarships to existing and future students at St. Michael's. Your donation to our general fund allows us to apply your donation to an area of most need.

Donate to A Named Fund:

Many of the Foundation's Named Funds offer the opportunity to support multiple students in one year or over the course of many years. While a Named Endowment is set up to fund students in perpetuity, the larger endowed amount in the fund, the larger the yearly tuition assistance amount.

Our Named Funds or Named Endowments actively receiving donations are:

 
lorettoLoretto Academy Endowment:  Loretto Academy educated many a young woman alongside St. Michael’s when it was traditional for the boys and girls to be educated separately.  Loretto closed in 1968 and the girls transferred to St. Mike’s, a new legacy was born. In honor of all the young women who called Loretto Academy their “home,” this fund is for you.

Betsy Tapia Memorial Fund: Betsy Tapia was a beloved English teacher at St. Mike's and upon her death in 2012 a fund was created in her name. While the scholarship is first based on need, the Betsy Tapia Fund requires a writing component and is judged secondly on writing merit.  .

Create a Named Fund

Named Scholarships are a great way to provide tuition assistance over the course of 1-5 years. A Named Scholarship in the amount of $1,000 or $2,500 can provide one student with assistance for one year. A Named Scholarship donation of $10,000 provides one student with assistance at $2,000 per year for five years. The minimum donation to create a Named Scholarship is $1,000.

Endowments

Endowments present named opportunities to support tuition assistance. In order to ensure our ability to educate young men and women in the Lasallian tradition, we must build and maintain our endowment. Endowment funds begin at $50,000. Often endowments come from an alumnus or organization dedicated to quality character- and academic-based education. Make an endowment in your or your family's name or consider bequeathing an endowment through our planned giving program.
