Giving

Give to the Seton Family of Catholic Schools

Our mission of providing high quality Catholic education to urban Catholic schools in Greater Milwaukee would not be possible without the generosity and dedication of our donors. We are deeply grateful on behalf of our students, their families and neighborhoods!

How to Give

Cash, Check or Credit Card

Please make checks payable to Seton Catholic Schools. If checks are not accompanied by a letter or enclosed in a Seton return envelope, we ask that you indicate in the check’s memo line your intention for the gift. Mail checks to:

Seton Catholic Schools
Development Office

3501 S. Lake Drive
Milwaukee, WI 53207

Seton accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. Gifts via credit card can be made electronically by accessing our secure online PayPal form. If you prefer to make a contribution over the phone using a Visa, MasterCard or Discover card, please call Kelsey Hau,  414.831.8414.

Monthly Re-occuring Gifts

Setting up a recurring monthly gift is an easy and cost effective way to make your gift to Seton Catholic Schools. Monthly donations can be processed via credit card set up through the online PayPal donation form. You can also call Kelsey Hau to make payments over the phone at 414.831.8414.

Stock or Securities

A gift of stock or appreciated securities can provide the donor with a tax deduction and the ability to avoid capital gains tax. You may make a gift of securities to Seton Catholic Schools through your broker. For information on gifts of stock and securities, please contact Kelsey Hau, 414-831.8414 or khau@setoncatholicschools.org.

Please note: Do not sell the securities; you must transfer the securities to the school’s brokerage account to receive the most advantageous tax treatment.

Matching Gifts

Many companies will match the contributions that employees make to nonprofit organizations such as Seton Catholic Schools. Under a corporate matching gift program, gifts made by a company’s eligible employee, employee’s spouse or retiree may be matched with company or corporate foundation funds—sometimes doubling or tripling the initial gift.

The process for submitting a matching gift claim differs from company to company. Some require a completed paper form, others have an online system, while others request that claims be filed by telephone. In the event that your company provides a paper matching gift claim form, please complete it and mail to:

Seton Catholic Schools
Development Office

3501 S. Lake Drive
Milwaukee, WI 53207

Planned Giving

Leaving a gift to Seton Catholic Schools in your will or by beneficiary donation is a great way to invest in the future of Catholic education and make a lasting difference for the students and educators of tomorrow.

HOW YOU BENEFIT

  • You decide how much to give—no gift is too small.
  • Your gift costs you nothing now.
  • You retain control of your assets during your lifetime and, if your circumstances change, you can modify the gift.
  • You may choose to keep your gift anonymous.
  • You can leave a gift in honor or memory of someone who inspired your commitment to education.
  • You will be remembered as someone who made our Seton Catholic Schools better for students today and for future generations.

Choose the right gift for you.

“We, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, each of us is to exercise them accordingly”
