Annual Fund

Give the Gift of Paraclete

On December 27, 2020, the federal government enacted a second stimulus package that extends many of the charitable giving provisions in the original CARES Act.

As in 2020, you can reduce your 2021 tax liability and make an impact at Paraclete High School through strategic charitable giving leveraging updated tax laws.

Gifts of cash are tax-deductible in the year the gift is made. The  CARES Act has two key changes that affect gifts of cash:

  1. “Above-the-Line” Deduction for Cash Gifts 
    For taxpayers who take a standard deduction, an “above-the-line” deduction of up to $300 is now available for gifts of cash (check, credit cards, and debit cards are included).
  2. 100% Charitable Deduction Limit for Itemized Deductions
    The CARES Act increases the deduction limit from 60% to 100% of adjusted gross income (AGI) for gifts of cash to charity. The gift may be for any charitable purpose and is not limited to gifts for Coronavirus relief.

Thank you for your gift!

Annual Fund – 

We are filled with enthusiasm! This enthusiasm is evident in the varied academic, spiritual, athletic, and social events taking place throughout Paraclete High School. Our students continue to gain entrance to prestigious colleges and universities, and they have garnered local and national attention with many academic and athletic awards. We are proud of the accomplishments of our students, and we are grateful for the generosity of our benefactors that help us grow and thrive.

As alumni and friends, we ask that you help us ensure that our growth and traditions continue by contributing to our 2021-2022 Annual Fund. The Annual Fund is a program that seeks unrestricted gifts to support the mission of Paraclete High School. These gifts allow leadership to address high priority needs, respond to unforeseen situations, and invest in high potential areas for institutional advancement. Paraclete High School is a tax-exempt organization. Each gift has enormous impact on students, faculty, and the future of Paraclete.
