Ways to Give

As the costs of education continue to rise, more funding is required to meet the financial needs of Catholic school budgets. By supporting CSF, you are giving a gift that lives forever. For everyone who cares deeply about the value of Catholic education, there may be no greater gift.

If the current amount of monies provided by CSF and Development efforts can double, triple, and continue to grow, the reliance on Parish subsidy and tuition can be reduced. This would ensure the future of Catholic education in Winona, enabling the schools to continue providing quality, faith-based education for tomorrow’s leaders.

The Foundation accepts and encourages gifts of cash, stock, or property anytime throughout the year. In addition to current gifts the foundation has established opportunities for support through the Father Paul Nelson Legacy Society, a planned giving society, for those interested in an estate gift.
