Ways to Give

St. Edward Parish School is truly grateful for your support. When you make a gift, you join a growing number of individuals and families who value the Parish School experience. 

Gift of Prayer
As a Catholic community, the gift of prayer, for ourselves as we support our children and Administration in the faith formation of our community, for those in need, and for those who have gone before us, is a most powerful blessing.

Online and Monthly Giving
Many families make a pledge at the beginning of the school year, and set up recurring payments to be made during the fiscal year (pledges must be paid in full by June 30. The school's fiscal year is July 1 - June 30). Click here to be directed to our safe and secure online giving portal. 

Cash or Check
Most donors find that a personal check is the easiest way to make a gift. These donations are fully tax-deductible and have an immediate impact upon the program for which the funds are allocated.  Checks should be made out to “St. Edward the Confessor Parish School” and mailed to:
