We are guided by our mission statement to nature the seeds of faith, cultivate the tree of knowledge and follow the path of Christ. With your support and gifts, we can continue to model our patron saint, St. Barnabas as “Sons and daughters of encouragement.”
Below is valuable information and ways to support St. Barnabas:
Memorial and Honor Gifts: Make a donation in any amount to St. Barnabas in memory of, or in honor of a loved one – a classmate, family member, friend or teacher. Unless otherwise designated to apply to a specific named program, these memorial and honor gifts are added to the general St. Barnabas Fund for tuition assistance aid.
Corporate Matching Gifts: Your gift could double! Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable donation made by their employees. Check with your employer and your spouse's employer to find out if they sponsor matching gifts and take advantage of leveraging your own giving to benefit St. Barnabas even more.
Gifts of Stock: Giving appreciated stock to St. Barnabas is a wonderful way to help us continue our mission, and for the owner to receive tax benefits on such gifts. It allows St. Barnabas to receive a larger gift than if it was sold by the owner and the proceeds donated to the Parish and/or School. In turn, the owner receives a greater tax deduction by giving the stock directly to St. Barnabas.
Gifts in Kind: Sometimes donors have non-financial assets they wish to donate to St. Barnabas. Some examples include: sports equipment, heavy machinery, office equipment and furniture, etc. For these types of gifts, please contact us to determine our current needs.
Special Gifts: St. Barnabas maintains a list of projects and improvements. For the latest list and ways to match our needs and yours.
