Support Us

James L. Collins Catholic School relies on the caring support of donors to fund program enhancements and improvements, as well as tuition assistance.  Family contributions and fundraiser participation are vital to the school, and every dollar given through these avenues is spent exclusively here.

Contributions can also help secure outside funding for the school from foundations and corporations. Those groups review the percentage of alumni, faculty, and parental participation, which serves to demonstrate that the families of the school and supporting community believe JLCCS is important and worthy of support.

We greatly appreciate the financial generosity of alumni, parents, parishioners, grandparents, and friends and thank you on behalf of current and future students.

Cornerstone Club
Join the Collins Catholic School Cornerstone Club and make your gift to the school on a recurring schedule. The Cornerstone Club is named for our school's four cornerstones - faith, involvement, integrity, and respect.  Choosing to spread your support throughout the year is an easy way for you to plan your donations into your personal budget. Giving monthly allows you to contribute a desired annual amount in smaller, more manageable increments.  Your recurring gift can be scheduled for several months, a year or it can be left open-ended.  The Collins Cornerstone Club provides a dependable source of income for our school so we can continue our mission and help our students get to college and heaven.

Annual GAP Campaign
Annual GAP Giving is the foundation for all of our fundraising and parents, alumni, grandparents and friends of JLCCS all play a vital role. Your gift, no matter the size, is so important. Participation in Annual Giving is frequently used as a benchmark measurement of a community’s strength, making support at any level especially powerful. The Annual GAP Campaign, held every year, bridges the difference between what is charged for tuition and actual costs incurred to educate each child to run the school. The Annual GAP Campaign's purpose is to meet expansion needs and to provide enhancements to our school's educational programs which are not covered by tuition.  Donate Online Now

Matching Gifts
Employees, retirees, and their spouses may be eligible for the matching gift programs offered by many companies.  This could more than double your total gift to JLCCS.  Don't forget to check with your Human Resources department to see if your company has a matching gift program.  If your company has a matching gift program, just let JLCCS know and we will be happy to coordinate.
