    If so, please list whom we would receive payments from here:

    Parents are asked to consider a Gospel tithe model for sacrificial giving. Such a model might be 5% to OLC Church, 1% to CSA, 1% to OLCEF and 3% in other gifts. This Foundation covenant encompasses only the Foundation portion of the tithe. This model emphasizes equal sacrifice not equal giving. Those who earn more can give more so that those who earn less can still afford a Catholic education.

    No minimum pledge amount is required. Even with a pledge of zero, parents are expected to comply with the non-financial components of the covenant.

    Donations to OLC Education Foundation are considered charitable contributions for tax purposes in accordance with an IRS letter of July 6, 1993. Donations to OLC Education Foundation can be made in one lump sum donation or made semi annually, quarterly, or monthly.

    Any pledge made is considered to be the parents’ good-faith intention of giving to the Foundation. A pledge is not a legal obligation. Unforeseen situations may make necessary modifications to the pledged amounts. Please notify the parish office if you need to adjust your pledge.

    Pledged amounts may be paid by third parties, e.g. grandparents. Use of company matching fund programs is encouraged. Activity & Retreat fees are not part of the pledge, but may also be paid through the electronic credit/debit card process. Electronic giving is the preferred mode of payment for pledges.

    The OLCEF is a giving-based program that enables us to offer Catholic education to all members of our parish regardless of their financial means. The OLCEF supports programs from Senior programs down to children programs. The intention of this Foundation is that it is funded with support from all members of our parish, even if they do not specifically have children in the elementary programs or school. It is only through continued sacrificial support of our entire parish community that we are able to provide the benefits of the OLCEF and enhance our Catholic education efforts for years to come.
