How Can I Give?

Since 1911, Rosati-Kain High School has conferred diplomas to more than 13,000 young women.  

As you know, our legacy has grown from a school in which the School Sisters of Notre Dame and the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet charged no tuition and earned no salaries into the only all-girls’ high school in the City of St. Louis providing a premier Catholic college preparatory education to young women from 70 zip codes and over 100 partner schools throughout the metropolitan area. Rosati-Kain relies on the financial contribution of alumnae, parents, grandparents, faculty, and staff, and friends to support our operating budget and provide scholarships and tuition assistance. There are numerous ways in which you may make your gift to Rosati-Kain:

  • The Fund for Rosati-Kain High School
  • Planned Gifts
  • Rosati-Kain High School Endowment
  • Rosati-Kain High School Scholarship Program
  • Memorials and Tributes
  • “Build the Dream…Live the Legacy” Capital Campaign

Planned Giving

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 Rosati-Kain. Those who 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.
