Ways to Give

We are grateful for your interest in supporting St. Bernard Academy through a financial contribution. For 150 years, our mission has been to provide an excellent Catholic education built on the foundation of self-discipline, compassion and a sense of responsibility for social justice in the tradition of the Sisters of Mercy. And thanks to the support of dedicated teachers and staff, as well as our generous parents, alumni and partners, we have done just that. To continue our mission and leave a legacy for the next 150 years, we need everyone’s continued support.

Our Advancement staff is pleased to work with you in structuring gift opportunities that ensure your philanthropic goals are met while best supporting the needs of the school. St. Bernard Academy is a 501(c)(3) organization and as such contributions to the school are tax deductible upon compliance with the Internal Revenue Code. If you would like to speak with a member of the Advancement team regarding your gift, please call (615) 385-0440.

In-Kind Donations and Gifts of Service

A in-kind gift 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, or donating electronics to the school, or 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.

Give the gift of service and volunteer at SBA! We are always looking for more passionate people with skills and services to give to SBA students.

If you would like to make an in-kind gift, give the gift of your time or would like additional information, please email mmcwhirter@stbernard.org.
