Your annual support demonstrates your confidence in our mission.
Your annual fund gift directly reaches students every day with items like classroom materials, technology, and science lab equipment.
You also ensure that our students are taught by the highest quality educators, and that tuition remains affordable.
Join the Honor Roll of Donors in one of these categories by making an annual gift today.
Short-term projects that present opportunities for leadership giving include the addition of new classroom space to support growing enrollment, and upgrades to the building’s windows and roof. Your support as a leadership donor affirms your passion for the availability of a Catholic high school education to students and families in State College and surrounding areas.
We thank leading donors like Joe and Sue Rogacs, whose family fund provides an annual matching challenge, Rob and Deb Shearer, and Rob and Alice Thomas, and their families, who continue to give generously to sustain our growth.

To establish a Named Scholarship, donors must commit a minimum of $500 annually for a three-year cycle (or $1,500 total over three years). Larger gifts are welcome. Named Scholarships provide financial aid to current students in the amounts of $500, $750, and $1,000 per year.
Donors may make special requests on student qualifications such as parish affiliation, excellence in academic area, community service, or extracurricular activities (excluding athletics). The donor may not request a gift be awarded to a family member or a specific student due to government guidelines regarding charitable gifts.
By combining these tax credits with federal deductions for charitable gifts, the scholarship donation is virtually cost-free to individuals and businesses.
Individuals may join the program through a Special Purpose Entity and must meet the following criteria:
Individual “Accredited Investors” with PA personal income tax liability of $3,500+ annually employed by a for-profit business entity.*
*Pass through businesses such as partnerships and businesses with PA Corporate Net Tax Liability are also eligible to join a Special Purpose Entity.
Tax credits are available on a first-come, first served basis, and for business participation require a simple application to be submitted on a specific timeline. To learn more contact Ellen Konkle at (814) 571-0576.
