There are many ways that you can help support Saint Thomas Aquinas Academy.  We appreciate your generous support through many types of gifts.  The Academy is a 501c3 organization, all gifts are gratefully received and acknowledged.
Donors may make contributions to the school by cash, check, bank draft or credit card. Automatic payment plans are available.

 

Tuition Assistance
Directed donations to our Tuition Assistance Fund help families throughout the Academy. These funds are distributed based on need.

Angel Donors / Adopt a Student
Help a student and their family with a gift of tuition.  You can support all or part of their educational costs.   

Annual Giving Campaign
The Annual Giving Campaign is the most important fund raising priority at Saint Thomas Aquinas Academy. It helps bridge the gap between tuition income and the cost of operating the school. Donations to the Annual Campaign are put to use immediately and impact every student, teacher and our facility every day. We welcome gifts of all sizes.

Matching Gifts
Speak with your employer about their matching gift program. They may be able to double or triple the amount of your contribution! Many companies also reward your volunteer hours by making a donation to the charitable organization of your choice.

Honorary or Memorial Gifts
Gifts made in honor or memory of a student, faculty member, coach, alumni or friend are gratefully accepted.

Gifts of Real Estate
Donating property to the school can give you multiple tax advantages.

Bequests
Remembering Saint Thomas Aquinas Academy in your will through a charitable bequest reduces the amount of your estate that is subject to estate tax.

Charitable Trusts
When you create a charitable remainder trust, you guarantee a gift to the school in the future. In return, you receive both an annual income from the assets you use to fund the trust and an immediate tax deduction. A charitable lead trust works the opposite way, the school receives an annual income stream from the trust assets for a period of time, then the remainder goes to your heirs.

Life Insurance
Life Insurance can be a convenient way to fund meaningful gifts to the school. There are many ways to approach this type of gift and all are mutually beneficial.

Host an Exchange Student
Help the school without giving monetarily by hosting a foreign exchange student for a year or a semester. The school receives a higher tuition rate for foreign exchange students. All that is required is that the Host Family will house, feed and transport the student to and from school. This is a wonderful way to learn a new language and about other parts of our world for both parties!
