Every gift to St. Cletus contributes directly to the extraordinary educational experience provided to each student.
The purpose of the St. Cletus School Annual Fund Drive is to support the growth of the school and narrow the gap between what we charge in tuition and our actual operating expenses.
We want to keep tuition as low as possible to make Catholic education as affordable and accessible as possible. Unlike tuition, your donation is tax deductible.
Whether you are a parent, alumni, faculty or staff member or friend of St. Cletus School, the Annual Fund is a significant way to show how much you value the excellent academic and spiritual foundation St. Cletus School continues to provide.
Gifts are accepted via personal check or cash. Pledges are welcome with payment being made in quarterly or semi-annually increments. Your gift to the annual fund campaign can be made by printing out the pledge form (link below) and sending it to us via mail or return in it the collection basket at Mass.
Please send your completed pledge form to:

Planned Gifts to Leave a Legacy
A planned gift is the ultimate way to ensure the continuity and permanence of a St Cletus School education. Gifts may be made through a simple bequest, life insurance policies, retirement plan assets, trusts and other charitable mechanisms.
St. Cletus families and friends may choose to honor a special person – such as a teacher, student, relative or friend – by making a Memorial Gift or an Honor Gift in his or her name. Tribute gifts may be made in any amount and directed according to the donor’s wishes.
Gifts of Real Estate and Personal Property
Gifts of real estate and personal property such as art, collections and tangible or intellectual property may be another way you can give to the school.
