Ways to Contribute

Annual Appeal Phonathon (Monetary)

Donors are listed in the annual Alumni Flashback. Your gifts to the Annual Appeal supplement the budget in many important ways:

  • Faculty Development

  • Faith Formation

  • Financial Assistance

  • Student Programs

  • Technology Enhancements

  • Enriched Academic Programs

The Annual Fund is one of the most important requests we make each year. Once again we ask your support to help us fulfill our mission of providing the very best in Catholic education. We are fortunate to have alumni and friends like you who believe in us and want to see the Leavenworth Regional Catholic School System as an environment where all students can be challenged to reach their potential. Your charitable commitment has a meaningful impact on every LRCSS family. Please respond positively to our Annual Appeal by sending your donation in to the Development Office (see below How to Contribute) or call for more information.

Guardian Angel Fund (Monetary)

It is important for us to respond with prayer, kindness and support when someone in our own faith community is financially overwhelmed due to job loss, a death in the family or changing family circumstances. The Guardian Angel Fund provides an opportunity for others to help families, who are experiencing a crisis meet their tuition obligation in a way that protects their dignity. The generosity of such giving is unseen but has an important impact on our school by allowing students to continue their education uninterrupted by the difficulty challenging them.

Since its beginning, the Guardian Angel Fund has enabled many outstanding young people to continue their education at Xavier and Immaculata. This is an opportunity for those who are able to respond to those in need.
