Making a Difference in Future Saints’ Lives: Your Guide to Giving to Saratoga Central Catholic School

Saratoga Central Catholic School building in Saratoga Springs, NY

At Saratoga Central Catholic School (SCC), we do more than educate future leaders. We're building the foundation for tomorrow's saints.

As a non-profit institution, SCC is not funded by local taxes or state government assistance. We rely on the generosity of our community to provide a robust educational environment that fosters academic excellence, spiritual growth, and athletic and artistic achievement. Your support makes all the difference.

Here's how you can leave a lasting impact:

Annual Appeal

Support our yearly campaign with a one-time or recurring gift. Contributions go towards scholarships, facility renovations, and essential equipment for a well-rounded academic and extracurricular experience. Gifts are welcome online via various payment methods or by check, with details available on our website.

Sponsor an Event

Join us in making our major fundraising events a success:

  • The Winter Gala: Our largest fundraiser, bringing together faculty, alumni, and friends for a night of celebration and support.

  • SPA/SCC Golf Tournament: A spring event that unites the community on the greens for a good cause. (COMING UP SOON: MAY 24, 2024)

Gifts of Stock

Donating appreciated securities offers you tax benefits while providing crucial support to SCC. This method allows you to bypass capital gains tax and possibly claim a market value tax deduction.

Gifts from an IRA

For those aged 72 or older, directing a portion of your IRA's required minimum distribution to SCC can be a tax-wise way to contribute. It supports SCC without being taxed as income, up to $100,000.

Include SCC in Your Legacy Plans

Leaving a legacy gift in your will or living trust signifies a profound commitment to the future of our school. It ensures that your values and support for Catholic education endure beyond your lifetime.

Tribute & Memorial Gifts

Honor a loved one or commemorate a special occasion with a gift that supports the values they held dear. These donations are a meaningful way to celebrate the lives and achievements of those connected to SCC.

Gifts of Life Insurance

Designating SCC as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy you no longer need can be a simple yet impactful way to contribute. This gesture can significantly benefit SCC upon your passing while providing estate tax benefits.


While cash donations are always appreciated, we recognize that donors, especially as they reach certain milestones in life, may consider alternative giving options. Each method of giving not only benefits Saratoga Central Catholic School but can also offer tax advantages or fulfill personal financial planning goals. We encourage you to consult with your tax or financial professional to determine the most beneficial way for you to make a difference.

Together, we can continue to support the growth and development of future saints at Saratoga Central Catholic School. Your generosity ensures that our mission thrives, impacting lives for years to come. Thank you for considering supporting SCC in these meaningful ways.
