Gifts in Kind
Giving to Lancaster Catholic High School can be more than just a monetary donation. Non-cash gifts of property and services also make an incredible impact on the students and families at our school. The generous contribution of in-kind gifts is equally transformative to the spiritual, academic, athletic, and musical/artistic lives of our school.
Gifts in Kind are a great way to determine exactly what your donation will do for the LCHS family as gifts can range from technological resources, a requested set of books for a classroom, to food and facility use for one of our fundraising events!
Any gift can make a true and immediate difference at LCHS! Please review our Wish List and consider transforming the life of a Lancaster Catholic student by providing for a specific need.
The fair market value of such items is deductible for income tax purposes. A formal appraisal is required by the IRS for gifts-in-kind valued at over $5,000.00.
A Testimonial on the Impact of Gifts in Kind: Setting the Stage
Mrs. Genevieve Malone continues to contribute to a place that she loves, Lancaster Catholic High School because she wants the young men and women who attend Catholic High to benefit from the improvements that her donations make.
Her most recent donation, the new stage, has taken school Masses to the next level and will transform one of her favorite events of the year, Lancaster Catholic’s Graduation. Mrs. Malone tries to attend the graduation ceremony every year and is so happy that graduates now have a beautiful stage on which to receive their diplomas.
Mrs. Malone and her late husband, Ben, had four children who attended Lancaster Catholic, and she is forever grateful for the education they received, as well as the friendships they formed.
“The flexibility that Mrs. Malone’s generous donation has afforded us in setting up for various events has allowed us to adapt the layout to best serve the atmosphere and accommodate the proper number of people involved,” Deb Waters, Director of Campus Ministry explained. “The unobtrusive design lends a look of polish, especially in the renovated Berger Gym. Rather than simply installing a stage, we are able to create a sanctuary for our school-wide Masses.”
“The stage goes together quickly, looks great and is very stable,” Facilities Director Rob Cavender said. “The modular system gives us many choices of sizes and shapes, which allows us to be creative and adapt to many different programs and events. The students’ programs look professional and they are much safer. We love it!”
