For information on how to make a gift in any of the areas below, please contact the Office of Advancement at 502-458-6258 or email Assumption's executive director of Advancement, Michelle Farmer.
The easiest gifts can be made through credit/debit card transactions, cash, and personal checks made payable to Assumption High School. You may also give online 24/7 at www.ahsrockets.org.
Major Gifts and Pledges
Transformative and lasting, a major gift allows us to promote excellence in Assumption’s programs, recruit and retain the most deserving and brightest students, and attract and maintain top-notch faculty. Major gifts can provide much needed scholarships, take a program to a new level, or provide financial stability to a signature program. Gift payments spread over a period of time make giving easier and can be scheduled to fit your individual needs on a monthly or annual basis.
Gifts of securities, stocks, or bonds entitle you to an income tax deduction; a gift of appreciated securities may also reduce your capital gains tax liability.
Including Assumption in your will is a simple way to ensure your giving will continue into the future. Bequests, annuities, gifts of life insurance, real estate, retirement assets, and other planned giving options are available. We would be pleased to meet with you, your attorney, and other advisors to discuss the most convenient method for you to make a financial commitment to Assumption.
Corporate Matching Gifts
Donations to Assumption through your company’s matching gift program are an easy way to maximize your support. Such programs may multiply contributions by two, three, or even four times the amount of a donation. If your employer has a matching gift program, we urge you to take advantage of it.
Memorial Gifts and Tributes
Donations to Assumption in honor or in memory of an individual can be a particularly meaningful way to contribute to Assumption. Gifts can include a scholarship, dedication to a building or room, or a strategic initiative that will ensure future strategic initiatives.
Endowments are major gifts providing support in perpetuity. You can choose to support the general endowment, which helps provide annual funding to offset operational expenses, or to create a named endowed fund for a specific area.
The gift of time in service to Assumption is a rewarding way to become involved with the school. We welcome volunteers to help in many ways.
Ongoing prayer for Assumption is one of the most meaningful ways to demonstrate your support and commitment to our mission. As Catherine McAuley stated, “Prayer will do more to solve our difficulties than all the money in the Bank of Ireland. Let us pray well and never grow weary.”
