Your Gift Matters
Every. Gift. Matters.
Gifts to the Reitz Memorial Annual Campaign provides critical and unrestricted support for financial aid, academic and extracurricular programs, athletics, and more. Reitz Memorial High School relies on and is incredibly grateful for the generosity of parents, alumni, families, grandparents and friends. With your support, we are better able to fulfill the Mission for More and fully prepare our students to make a difference in the world -- academically, spiritually and socially.
Ways to Give
On January 5, 1925, Reitz Memorial High School opened its doors for the first time. Almost 100 years later, because of our alumni and friends, young men and women continue to graduate rooted in faith prepared for their next step in life, and committed to serving their brothers and sisters. To celebrate Reitz Memorial High School's rich tradition of educating young men and women, and to honor our founder, Francis Joseph Reitz, who founded this school 98 years ago, we are fundraising the entire month of December up until January!
Scholarship Granding Organization
Reitz Memorial High School has partnered with the Institute for Education as our Offical Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO). An SGO is a state-designated 501(c)(3) that provides financial needs-based scholarships to students enrolled in non-public schools. All the scholarships that are awarded are funded by private donations, and the donor can elect to designate their gift to a certain school.
Building a lifelong community is imperative to support our mission. There are a number of ways you can support our school to ensure lifelong growth and sustainability for generation to cherish.
