Memorials and Tribute Gifts
If you have a loved one who has been impacted by the Foundation for Catholic Secondary Education, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor your loved one or celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday while supporting the work of our mission. Your memorial or tribute gift will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and make a difference in the lives of those we serve.Watch How It Works

An Example of How It Works
When Sarah's father passed away, she knew she wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for him. She remembered that during his lifetime he was always praising FCSE Catholic Central for its tireless efforts to better his community.
Sarah decided to make a gift to FCSE Catholic Central in her father's name using appreciated securities. Not only will her father's legacy live on at FCSE Catholic Central thanks to the gift and a commemorative plaque, but Sarah also received a federal income tax charitable deduction (because she itemizes her taxes) and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
