Donate to St Pascal Baylon Catholic SchoolSUPPORT ST. PASCAL’S

Fundraising is critical to the success of St. Pascal’s School.

Tuition covers a portion of the school’s operating budget. Additional financial resources are required for student scholarships, meeting day-to-day expenses and making capital improvements. St. Pascal’s has been serving students since 1950. The generous support of our community allows our mission to continue, providing every student who desires a Catholic education the opportunity to learn here. To learn more about philanthropic opportunities, please contact Mary Worley, Director of Development at 651-774-1585 or


The Annual Fund is a yearly fundraising drive that closes the gap between tuition income and the actual cost of a St. Pascal Baylon School student’s education. Financial gifts play a large part in balancing our overall budget and help us plan wisely for future expenditures, including new technology, teacher salaries and benefits, our facilities and other capital investments.

A charitable bequest an easy way to give to St. Pascal’s. A charitable request is simply a distribution from your estate to a charitable organization through your last will and testament. Different types of bequests include: 
  • General Bequests are legacies left to certain people or causes that come from the general value of the estate, and are made by designating a specific dollar amount, a particular asset or a fixed percentage of your estate to the cause of your choice.
  • Specific Bequests are made when a particular item or property is bequeathed for a designated purpose. (i.e., instruments bequeathed to St. Pascal’s for use in music education; dollar funds to be used in the operation of St. Pascal’s.)
  • Residuary Bequests are made when you intend to leave the residue portion of your assets after other terms of the will have been satisfied.
  • Contingency Bequests allow you to leave a portion of your estate to a particular charity if your named beneficiary does not survive you.
Naming St. Pascal Baylon School as the beneficiary of one or more of your retirement plans is a potential tax-saving strategy. As a charity, St. Pascal Baylon School would not be required to pay income tax on the amount received upon your death. In contrast, the qualified retirement plans and IRA funds would be considered “income in respect of a decedent” to your family members and subject to income tax. In addition, your estate would receive a charitable deduction, thereby reducing the size of your taxable estate.
Consider naming St. Pascal Baylon School as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy on your life if your spouse or children will not need the funds. This can be a great way to make a substantial gift to St. Pascal Baylon School. In addition, your estate would receive a charitable deduction, thereby reducing the size of your taxable estate. Another option would be to transfer ownership of the policy to St. Pascal Baylon School during your lifetime.
A charitable remainder trust allows you to transfer assets to a trust, receive an annual income stream from the assets, and pass the remainder amount to St. Pascal Baylon School upon your death or after a term of years. You would receive an income tax deduction upon the creation of the trust based on the remainder amount that will pass to St. Pascal Baylon School.
A charitable gift annuity allows you to donate assets to St. Pascal Baylon School in exchange for St. Pascal Baylon School’s promise to pay you a lifetime income stream. In addition, you would receive an income tax deduction based on the amount passing to St. Pascal Baylon School.
