Philanthropy Makes the Difference

You make learning possible.

Every day, students and educators embrace the mission of Jesus Christ and seek out formative experiences with faith, service and leadership to become men and women who contribute to their church and community. In support of this mission, your gifts make a difference. 

Giving at Gibbons

Annual Giving

Catholic education is built on mission-driven moments. At Cardinal Gibbons, each day brings a new opportunity to form men and women as they develop their faith, are inspired by service, and learn through leadership. Support of The Cardinal Gibbons Fund allows us to focus on advancing our mission. The Cardinal Gibbons Fund enables us to...

  • Offer tuition assistance to students who embrace our mission but require financial assistance to attend
  • Support educator salaries and provide educators with professional development and educational growth opportunities
  • Offer diverse enrichment opportunities for students such as iCube, STARS, Robotics, FYI, Coffee House and ensure Spiritual Formation by underwriting over half of the cost for Retreats and other outreach 
  • Provide innovative artistic opportunities for students through performances, fine arts and musical experiences
  • Increase leadership and ministry opportunities in our nationally recognized athletics program

Planned Giving

Planned Gifts ensure the long term future of Cardinal Gibbons while also allowing donors to leave a legacy. 

Legacy gifts provide the foundation for Cardinal Gibbons' work. These gifts allow you to take care of your family, provide for gifts to loved ones, and include a charitable gift for Cardinal Gibbons. We can help you find the best way to make your gift, and perhaps help you to make a larger gift than you thought possible.

Donors are invited to be part of the Cum Deo Society, which recognizes and celebrates members of our community who have chosen to leave a bequest, life insurance, Donor Advised Fund, IRA or other estate provision to Cardinal Gibbons.
