There are many ways to donate to Pope John XXIII, but we’ve highlighted the three most popular ways.  The generosity of our supporters make our Catholic schools possible. Sometimes donors seek to make a contribution to a specific item or area.  We are happy to work with you and make sure your gift is used just as you intended. Thank you for your continued support!

1. Pope John Endowment


The Pope John Endowment was created in 1983 to create an ongoing source of income which supplements existing fundraising programs at Pope John. The Endowment creates long-term financial stability for the school.  The funds contributed to the endowment are invested and the earnings only are distributed to the school’s budget on a regular basis.

Please keep the Endowment in mind when you are preparing your will, doing your estate planning or any time you would like to make a charitable gift to the school.

2. Blue Legacy Planned Giving



Alumni, parents, and friends of Pope John who leave a planned gift or bequest to the school are invited to join the Blue Legacy.

The Blue Legacy publicly honors those who have remembered the school in this special way. All estate gifts, large and small are important to the future of the school. Please prayerfully consider a planned gift that will transcend your lifetime

Other Ways To Help!

Tuition Assistance

The Tuition Assistance Fund is another great way to give.  Your gift goes directly to help families pay their child’s tuition.  If you are interested in being a “tuition angel” just mark your donation as Tuition Assistance.

Donate Ag Commodities

When an ag producer transfers legal ownership of grain or livestock to a 501(c)(3) charitable organization before the commodity is sold, the producer will not realize taxable income from a sale, thus minimizing taxes. The producer is still able to deduct the entire cost of the production of the commodity on the producer’s Schedule F. Depending on the producer’s specific circumstances, savings may be realized on federal and state income tax and self-employment tax.

Forms are available for this transaction at Central Valley Ag in Elgin or at school. Producers can select which school fund they want to support on the form.

If you are purchasing anything from Amazon – please use and select Pope John.  The school automatically gets a portion of what you spend from Amazon. You can use the link below.
