Our Lady of Peace School

OLP Annual Fund

What is the OLP Annual Fund?

It is the school’s annual giving opportunity. Annual giving is the foundation of a comprehensive advancement program at any organization and is the best way for parents, alumni, grandparents, businesses, parents of alumni, and friends to invest in the future of Our Lady of Peace School.

When and how do I make a pledge?

Annual Fund letters will be mailed in April, and gifts for the 2016-17 fund will be collected through June. You may also donate by clicking here: MAKE YOUR DONATION TODAY! Confirmation letters will be mailed acknowledging your gift and may be presented to your tax preparer for your tax deductible donation.

Your generosity remains a vote of confidence in our efforts to provide the very best education in a Christ-centered environment for our students. Please make your generous gift today.

Why is the Annual Fund necessary, why not just raise the tuition?

Through tax-deductible charitable contributions to the Annual Fund, different constituencies are able to keep our tuition costs affordable. If we simply raise the cost of tuition; alumni, grandparents, friends and corporations will lose the opportunity to support the mission of the school through their annual gift.

What are matching gifts?

Matching gifts generate a 1:1, 2:1 or 3:1 return on your investment, depending on your employers benefit package. Some employers will give to an educational institution or other non-profit as an employee benefit by matching the gift made by an employee. For example, if your employer offers a 1:1 match and you donate $100, your employer will match your gift, making your donation a worth a total of $200. Check with your employer about their gift matching program. Please click on the link below for some common and local matching companies.
