Planned Giving

Thoughtfully structured planned gifts have the unparalleled potential to sustain and grow McNicholas High School’s ability to serve our students, while often affording exceptional financial and tax benefits to our planned gift benefactors.

Planned gifts will sustain the life and mission of McNicholas High School. In fact, a planned gift from the Sisters of Saint Joseph of 48 acres, a beautiful convent building, and our core academic facilities gave life to McNicholas High School in 1951. We have much work to do to ensure that the sacred motto of our founding Sisters—That youth may attain Full Stature in Christ—will continue to flourish for generations to come.

If you are planning to include McNicholas High School in your estate plan, please use this confidential form to inform us of those plans. Sharing these plans with us today opens the door for opportunities to:

  • Create a plan for your gift that fulfills your personal intentions and objectives
  • Designate McNick’s use of your gift
  • Maximize the impact of your gift
  • Honor your benefaction during your lifetime
  • Thank you for considering a planned gift to McNicholas High School

We invite you contact us to learn more about how you can ensure that our sacred mission will live on—today, tomorrow, and forever.
