Today, rising costs continue to push up the costs of tuition while meeting individual student needs. Many families believe that they cannot afford to provide a Catholic education for one, let alone multiple, children. The Office of Development works to connect donors to those families via financial and estate planning as well as annual donations and events to benefit the school.
In addition to fundraising, Epiphany’s Office of Development oversees marketing and enrollment efforts to ensure greater visibility of the school within the community and among prospective students and families. Working with the school board, principal and enrollment committee, the Office of Development implements and monitors programs designed to market Epiphany Cathedral School for image and enrollment.

CHARITABLE GIFT ANNUITITES give to the donor while also giving to Epiphany Cathedral School. In exchange for gifts of cash, appreciated stock, or other assets, Epiphany Cathedral School agrees to pay the donor a fixed income for the rest of their life or the lives of both the donor and the spouse. The percentage income you receive is determined by the donor’s age.
LIFE INSURANCE POLICIES offer a very special vehicle for charitable gifts because the size of the gift is usually many times the actual amount of the premiums paid up to the date of death. Existing insurance policies, newly purchased policies, or combinations of old and new policies can be integrated into a gift-giving plan.
Gifts of STOCKS, BONDS AND SECURITIES that have increased in value can provide another means of reducing income taxes. Please contact our Development Office to alert them of a transfer of stocks or bonds and receive a DTC number for electronic stock transfers.Ministries Often Named for Memorial or Planned Gifts Include:
