Donate to TCS!

Please consider a donation in the form of a Tax Credit Scholarship! Remember to indicate that your donation should be restricted to St. Damian School.

Several donors have partnered with the scholarship granting organization Empower Illinois and the Archdiocese of Chicago to create a matching gift pool.

Every dollar donated to this program through Empower Illinois between now and Feb. 29, 2020 and designated to a school operated by the Archdiocese of Chicago will be matched with two dollars from this pool (limitations apply). The program will end when all matching funds have been depleted or on Feb. 29, 2020, whichever comes first.

A $5,000 donation will have a tremendous impact. With the 75 percent tax credit you receive on the donation and this match, it will have a net cost to you of $1,250 and will provide $15,000 in scholarships for low-income families.

After April 1, 2020, any matching gift program funds that are not awarded at a designated school will be reallocated to low-income students at schools with unmet demand.

We invite you to visit the link below to learn more and triple your donation.

Catholic Schools Week Family Project

Your child/ren will be bringing home a blank family crest. We would love it if your family would decorate the crest with symbols that represent your family. We will proudly display these in our hallways during Catholic Schools Week for all to enjoy. The key component in our Catholic Schools, is you, our families! We want to celebrate you! Please return these to the school by Friday, January 17, 2020.
