The students of Memorial High School rely on the support of alumni and friends who share their time, talent, and treasure so the school can continue to offer an affordable, high quality Catholic education. The most common way of supporting Memorial High School is through a charitable donation or gift. This is not only vital to the school, but it provides the added benefit of qualifying as a tax deduction to the donor, in most cases.
Memorial Annual Campaign
Annual gifts of any size to the Memorial Annual Campaign are utilized to provide tuition assistance, classroom equipment, student programs, teacher development, extra-curricular activities and much more. Contributions enable us to fulfill our mission to educate all students to their highest potential by developing religious values, providing excellence in education and fostering a commitment to service.
The Circle of Leaders
The Circle of Leaders was established in 2010 to recognize those donors who make annual leadership level gifts in the amount of $1,000 or more to our school’s annual Memorial Campaign, which is vital to the advancement of the mission of Reitz Memorial High School. Over 70 alumni, parents, friends, and businesses joined us in the Circle of Leaders in its inaugural year.
The Junior Circle of Leaders
In the 2015-2016 Memorial Annual Campaign fiscal year we unveiled the Junior Circle of Leaders which enables our alumni and friends that are 40 years of age or younger to join the JCOL at the $500 donation level.

Corporate Matching Gifts
Many Employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contribution made by an employee ( in some cases doubled or tripled) toward a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, contact your human resources department and request a matching gift form.
An endowment is a gift of money or other donated property (stocks, bonds, real estate, etc.) invested to produce ongoing income for a specific or general use.
