Rosati-Kain Annual Fund
Thank you to all of our donors! Your contribution to the R-K Annual Fund helps offset operating expenses and keep tuition costs low.
The Rosati-Kain Annual Fund is the heart of development at Rosati-Kain. The Annual Fund brings in the most significant amount of donor assistance, both participatory and financial, and supports the overall operating budget of the school. With the addition of Tuition Assistance, these two funds provide the lifeline to future students of Rosati-Kain High School.
Support for the Annual Fund comes from alumnae, parents, faculty, staff, students, parents of alumnae, board members and friends of Rosati-Kain who wish to see the school’s opportunities passed on to future R-K students.

Planned giving options, including charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, bequests, and gifts of stock, offer you significant tax and income benefits while providing much needed support for the school and its students. Those that remember R-K in their wills and trusts will be members of our Caritas Society.
Planned giving, sometimes referred to as “legacy planning,” is a gift that enables donors to make larger gifts than they could make from their income. While some planned gifts provide a life-long income to the donor, others use estate and tax planning techniques in ways that maximize the gift and/or minimize its impact on the donor’s estate.
We are pleased to have the Roman Catholic Foundation of Eastern Missouri as our Planned Giving partner.
The Foundation’s mission is to inspire giving and connect donors to Catholic ministries, sustaining the local church for future generations. The Foundation assists donors with legacy gifts, from their will, trust, or retirement plan, to the Catholic parish, school or organization of their choice.

Rosati-Kain High School Endowment Fund
Gifts to the Endowment Fund are invested in perpetuity, with the earned interest available for tuition assistance, operating expenses or special capital needs. The principal will never be spent, ensuring that your support for Rosati-Kain lasts beyond your lifetime.
Alumnae Scholarship Fund
Gifts of $10,000 or more may be designated to name a scholarship in honor of a loved one, teacher, friend or other. Scholarship funds can be designated for students who meet certain criteria as specified by a donor. The donor may participate in the selection of the scholarship recipient.
Gifts to Rosati-Kain may be made as a tribute or memorial to honor a friend, alumna or loved one.
Build the Dream…Live the Legacy Capital Campaign
