How Can I Give?
There are many ways you can give – from a lump sum by check (preferred) or credit card, to monthly installments using the ACH withdrawal (auto-withdrawal directly from your checking account). The students, families, teachers, and staff appreciate your generosity and a tax deductible gift.
Preferred Option 1 – ACH Withdrawal
Whether it’s one large lump sum or a specific amount each month, you can set up that automated withdrawal directly from your checking or savings account using the ACH withdrawal form. Again, you specify the details, whether it’s a one time donation or you want to break your donation up over the course of several months – it’s your choice!
For example: Monthly payments of $25 for the year = Donation of $300
Just mail your completed form to the school marked “Donations“.
Preferred Option 2 – Checks
This option is preferred because there is no fee charged to the school (as with a credit card payment, and to a much lesser extent the ACH withdrawal), so 100% of your donation goes directly to St. Mary’s.
Feel free to send us a check whenever you want, in any amount you want.
Credit Card Option – (a small fee taken out of donation)
