Lafayette Catholic School System (Advancement Office), 2410 South 9th Street, Lafayette, IN 47909.
 
Scholarship Granting Organization
Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO) allows our donors to make a gift to the Lafayette Catholic School System that directly benefits the financial aid scholarships awarded to students who meet eligibility and income requirements. Individuals and businesses who contribute to an SGO qualify for a 50% Indiana state tax credit.
 
Gifts of securities, stocks and bonds can provide considerable tax advantages when transferred to the Lafayette Catholic School System before they are sold.
 
Donations may be made in honor or in memory of loved ones. 
 
Donor Advised Fund
A donor-advised fund is like a charitable investment account, for the sole purpose of supporting charitable organizations you care about. You may contribute cash, securities or other assets to a donor-advised fund and take an immediate tax deduction. The funds can be invested for tax-free growth and you can recommend grants to Lafayette Catholic School System. Donor-advised funds are the fastest-growing charitable giving vehicle in the United States because they are one of the easiest and most tax-advantageous ways to give.
 
Does your employer have a matching gift program? Matching-gift programs are an easy way to dramatically increase the impact of your contributions to the Lafayette Catholic School System. Hundreds of businesses around the country donate funds to match the gifts made by their employees, employee spouses and retirees.
 
Deferred or planned gifts – including bequests, life-income plans, life insurance, and other options for your estate – can help you combine your interest in making an ultimate gift to the Lafayette Catholic School System while increasing your income, earning valuable income tax deductions, and reducing your estate taxes.
