In-Kind Donations and Gifts of Service

A gift in-kind represents something you currently own and would like to donate to SBA. It can include both small and large items. Examples of an in-kind gift might include a book that you would like to donate to the library; providing trophies for a sports team or meals for a faculty gathering; donating electronics to the school; or making a gift of a family-owned painting or book. The IRS requires that the donor estimate the value of the gift. SBA will process the gift based on the value provided by the donor.

Planned Giving

Planned gifts enable St. Bernard Academy to plan its programs, activities, curriculum and physical plant into the future while keeping tuition as low as reasonably possible. Planned gifts allow you to make a statement of support that will become your lasting legacy.


Our Advancement Office is happy to help with any questions you might have!
