engraved paver program
Help pave the way for our children’s future by leaving a lasting foundation for their success with a personally engraved brick paver. These pavers make up the walkway in the Swaney Courtyard and are a tribute to our students and donors.
Many of the engraved pavers represent a variety of accomplishments.
- Commemorate a student’s graduation.
- Honor a loved one with a memorial gift.
- Celebrate a successful sports season.
- Honor a teacher and/or coach.
- Promote a business’ commitment to education.
Purchased as a gift or for yourself, your paver will be a lasting reminder of your support of Saint Joseph’s Episcopal School, its students, and its future.
The growth of Saint Joseph’s Episcopal School is very important, and the endowment fund is one of the school’s priorities. With a larger endowment, Saint Joseph’s has greater flexibility and ability to attract and retain the best and brightest students and faculty, as well as provide grant assistance to qualified students whose families are unable to afford full tuition.
Endowment funds support a variety of programs, including: scholarship, academic chairs, professional development, academic programming, facilities, and many other needs that fall within the mission of continuing to grow Saint Joseph’s Episcopal School.
Endowment funds are invested and the interest earned from this fund is used to support the programs listed above. As the School’s Endowment grows, so do the funds available to fulfill Saint Joseph’s Episcopal mission and to continue to enhance its operations to provide the best possible opportunities for our students and faculty.
Tribute or Memorial Gifts are also gifts to the Endowment. A gift to Saint Joseph’s Endowment Fund is a special way to honor a friend or family member. Your donation may take the form of a tribute celebrating a special occasion or achievement, or it may be a memorial. Tribute and memorial gifts provide valuable support for the School. Gifts of this kind not only honor the recipient but also inspire others to support Saint Joseph’s Episcopal School in the same way.
From day-to-day maintenance to the refurbishment of a playing field, Saint Joseph's uses the generous gifts of its donors in myriad ways. If, however, there is one particular aspect of the School's operations that particularly interests you, consider a specific gift. These gifts can be directed toward an identified need but could also include the following areas: Curriculum, Athletics, Academy of the Arts, Enrichment Programs, Professional Development, Facilities, and more.
If you are interested in making a gift toward a specific area of need, please contact the Development Office at (561) 732-2045.
Planned Giving is a set of ways that a donor can leave money/assets to Saint Joseph’s at his/her death, or it is a way to invest money so that the donor receives benefits during his/her life and then bequeaths the remaining funds to Saint Joseph’s School. Planned Giving programs are designed and set-up to provide future income to Saint Joseph’s, so it can continue to build on a tradition of academic excellence, leadership, and Christian values.
Planned Giving programs can be adapted to each donor’s needs. A list of Planned Giving opportunities is outlined below.
Gifts of Cash
Making a donation of cash is as simple as writing a check or authorizing a charge on your credit card. From your standpoint, it’s no fuss, no bother. Find out how Saint Joseph’s can put your contribution to work without delay.
Gifts of Securities
Stock that has increased in value is one of the most popular assets used for charitable giving, once it has been held for a minimum of a year. Making a gift of securities to us offers you the chance to help our School while realizing many important benefits for yourself.
Gifts of Retirement Plan Assets
If you are like many Americans, your financial future will likely revolve around your retirement plan assets. To maximize the value of a retirement account, consider making a lifetime gift of its after-tax values to a tax-exempt deferred giving plan.
Gifts of Savings Bonds
Savings bonds – likely the nation’s most widely held appreciated asset – represent major assets that may have stopped growing and are now collecting dust, just waiting to be put to use. A tax-wise use for your appreciated savings bonds is to support a cause you care about.
Gifts of Real Estate
Using real estate, such as your house, farm, or commercial property, to fund a gift allows you to preserve your cash assets, receive significant tax and income advantages, and make a larger charitable gift than anticipated.
Gifts of Life Insurance
Donating your life insurance could be a wonderful way to fulfill your desire to support our School. By making Saint Joseph’s Episcopal School the beneficiary of an existing policy, you make good use of your resources and expand your ability to make a significant gift.
