By joining with Cardinal Gibbons, donors fund outstanding academic, spiritual, fine arts, and athletic programs, provide financial aid, faculty/staff enrichment, along with building and grounds improvements on behalf of over 1500 students each year.
Each fall, outstanding volunteers lead the Cardinal Gibbons Fund campaign which is the most important and largest fundraising effort on campus. 100% participation is encouraged. Just as in other private schools, participation is important for tuition doesn’t cover the school’s annual operating costs. Success of the Cardinal Gibbons Fund has a direct impact on our ability to continue to raise the quality of programs and education at Cardinal Gibbons.
Planned Gifts are a long-term method of supporting Cardinal Gibbons, in which a gift’s use is postponed until a specified future date. An example of a planned gift is naming Cardinal Gibbons High School as a beneficiary in one’s will. Other planned gifts include charitable remainder trusts, life insurance policies, or transfers of residence or personal property allowing the donor to retain a life estate.
