St. John the Baptist School needs your help! To keep tuition affordable and to offer an excellent academic opportunity to any child regardless of family income level, we need the continued support of our parents, alumni, parishioners and community. Your donation can be used to fund scholarships, teacher wish list items, classroom updates or the St. John the Baptist Endowment Fund. Any donation is tax deductible and can be to honor a loved one as a memorial or specific request. For more information on planned giving or to make a specific request, please contact Linda Monahan at 402-296-6230.

St. John the Baptist Tuition Assistance Fund:
The St. John the Baptist Tuition Assistance Fund is a fund designed to help provide needed financial support for families who seek a faith-centered education for their children but do not qualify for the Diocesan Good Shepherd Scholarship. Please consider a tax deductible gift to the St. John the Baptist School Tuition Assistance Fund as part of your charitable giving plan. Every cent of your gift will help to pay a portion of a student’s tuition at St. John’s during the 2018-2019 school year. To download a donation form, please click here. If you prefer, you can make a one-time donation or recurring gift from your credit card or bank account. Simply visit www.catholicgift.org. Then click on the “Donate” button and follow the prompts.
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees. Check with your employer’s Hunan Resources Department to find out if they have a matching gift program. Most matching gift programs will support schools and scholarship programs like the St. John the Baptist Tuition Assistance Fund. If they do, request a matching gift form from them, and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest.
The impact of your gift to our Parish school may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
