Through the generosity of alumni, parents and friends, OCS is able to provide a quality Catholic education! Charitable support to the Owensboro Catholic Schools enhances the education, programs, equipment and facilities we provide.

OCS conducts two drives each year.

  • OCS K-8 Appeal – benefits students at Owensboro Catholic Schools in grades K-8
  • OCHS Phonathon – benefits students at Owensboro Catholic High School

There are many ways to make a gift to OCS. These methods of giving fit into two categories – Current Gifts and Deferred (Planned) Gifts.

 

Gifts for Current Programs

Types

  • A Gift of Cash, most often in the form of a personal check payable to OCS.
  • A Gift of Stock may be transferred to OCS, avoiding any capital gains tax.
  • A Gift of Property-real or personal.
  • A Matching Gift from a corporation. Several hundred U.S. companies participate in this program.

Gift Restrictions

Although many donors choose to allow the school to use their gifts where they are most needed, several special programs and projects are funded through restricted gifts each year. These include gifts to endowment programs and for tuition assistance.

Acceptance

On occasion, OCS is presented with a unique gift opportunity that requires the institution to formally accept a gift before it is actually made to the school. For that reason, OCS reserves the right to formally review any gift, regardless of its asset form, before it is receipted.
