Ways To Give

Thanks to generous alumni, parents, and friends such as you, Joliet Catholic Academy continuously strengthens the educational opportunities offered to the young men and women who are our students today and tomorrow’s leaders.

Your gift today makes an immediate impact on our students by providing scholarship assistance and financial aid to those who need it most, faculty development, support for strengthening our curriculum, as well as for extracurricular activities and athletic programs.

Online Giving
Easy and fast!
Click here to make a secure credit card gift via Paypal now!  We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover.

Recurring Gifts
Save time and trouble!

Does making several small contributions over time make more sense for you than making a large one-time gift?  By setting up a Recurring gift linked to your credit/debit card or bank account, you can spread out your yearly gift over several smaller installments.  You tell us how much and how often, and we’ll take care of the rest.

Gift or Pledge by Mail
Sustain the ongoing growth of JCA!

A gift of cash, check, money order or credit card is the simplest and most immediate way to give to Joliet Catholic Academy.  Cash gifts may be given outright, pledged or online.  An unrestricted gift for the greatest needs of the school is of a particular benefit, but gifts may be designated for specific purposes.

Send us a gift or a completed pledge card from a recent mailing you received, or click here to download a print-ready form.  Mail checks or pledges payable to Joliet Catholic Academy to this address:

Memorial and Honorary Gifts
A memory and an honor!

A gift in memory or honor of someone you love or admire can be a particularly meaningful way to contribute to Joliet Catholic Academy.

In-Kind Giving
Share your connections and resources!

In-kind gifts are professional services or goods made directly to Joliet Catholic Academy.  If these goods or services are ones that we would otherwise have to purchase, the gift may be recognized for tax purposes at the fair market value.

Class Gifts
Show your strength in numbers!

Class members can join together to support their alma mater through a class gift.  Recent reunion classes have donated excess monies back to the school in honor of a person or program dear to their hearts.

Gifts of Securities
Twice the savings!
A gift of securities, stocks or bonds entitles the giver to an income tax deduction; a gift of appreciated securities may also reduce a capital gain tax liability to the donor.
In order to donate securities to the JCA account, please provide your broker with the following information:
