Outright Gifts

An outright gift is a one-time gift made in the form of cash, check, credit card payment, or securities. Gifts can be made securely on-line or can be mailed to the school at:

Saint John's Catholic Prep
Advancement Office
3989 Buckeystown Pike
P.O. Box 909
Buckeystown, MD 21717


Pledge payments may be made monthly, quarterly, or semi-annually - between July 1st and June 30th. Monthly statements can be mailed or credit/debit cards can be charged in the manner requested by the donor. For Example: You may choose to pledge $1,000 by making an initial payment and setting up a pledge payment plan that fits your personal budget to pay off the remaining balance.

Matching Gifts

Many companies offer a matching gift program which is an easy way to double your gift. Please check with your Human Resources department to determine if your company has a matching gift program and maximize your impact of giving to Catholic Prep.

Securities and Real Estate

Popular alternatives to cash are gifts of appreciated property, such as securities and real estate. Such gifts generate a double tax benefit. In addition to receiving a charitable income-tax deduction for the full fair-market value of the property, the donor escapes any potential tax on the capital-gain element in the property. If you would like to make a stock transfer, please contact the for the schools routing and account number.
