As a Catholic school, we rely on generous support from donors like you to help make a quality, Catholic education affordable to families in our community. There are many ways you can help support our school.
Make a Donation
A general donation to St. John the Baptist will help provide financial support to our school’s operating budget, fund teacher salaries and will help make up the difference between the cost of tuition and the actual cost to educate a student. St. John the Baptist is a 5013c organization so your donation is 100% tax deductible.

Sponsor a Classroom
You have the opportunity to invest in the future of our parish school and the needs of our students by sponsoring a classroom. Your investment helps us bridge this financial gap between what we collect in tuition and the actual cost to educate a student. This gap is approximately $6,000 per student. Sponsoring a classroom is an investment in the future of our parish school and the greater Plattsmouth community.
As a classroom sponsor, you will get to know the students in the class your sponsorship supports. Students will connect with you throughout the year via letters, pictures and updates from the teacher.
Two sponsorships levels of $6,000 and $3,000 are available. To learn about the sponsorship levels and benefits, and how you can support a classroom, click on the link below.
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 for a 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 Human 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.
Engraved Garden Bricks
An engraved memorial brick can be an enduring piece of St. John’s school history. The bricks line the walkway through our beautiful outdoor garden, located between the school entrance and the church. The cost for an engraved brick is $50.
Engraved bricks include three lines with 14 characters per line (spaces and punctuation count as characters). Order forms are located in the parish commons and school office, or you can download a form by clicking HERE.
