Ways to Give
As an independent school, Seton Catholic operates without ongoing financial support from any diocese, parish, or religious group.
Because tuition alone does not cover the entire cost of each child's education, we seek support from all stakeholders and friends.
Seton functions solely under the financial model of Tuition + Donations = Cost of Education.
There are many ways that you can help to support the mission of Seton Catholic School:
Give a Gift Today
Support the Seton Fund
Mail your Gift Today. Click here for Seton Fund Form to print and mail.
The Seton Fund is our yearly campaign seeking gifts that help all areas of the school and support our mission of spiritual development, academic excellence, responsibility to self and service to others. The funds raised from July 1 – June 30 help to bridge the “gap” of cost of tuition and the cost to educate each child. We expect 100% participation from all current families in order to continue the excellent experience for our students throughout each school year. Consider making a monthly pledge given in installments over the school year in payments of your choice.
Employer Matching Gift Program
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match your charitable contributions. This is an easy way to double or triple your gift. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, contact your Human Resources department or call April Baratian (330) 342-4200 ext. 232 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Invest in our Tuition Assistance Endowment Fund
The Seton Tuition Assistance Endowment Fund, managed by the Hudson Community Foundation, is a vehicle for our school to provide tuition assistance and financial aid that will continue to benefit the students and the school in perpetuity. Anyone can donate to this fund by contacting Lisa Drew at the Hudson Community Foundation, 330-655-3580.
Give to the future of Seton without giving today. By transferring 1% ownership of your life insurance policy to Seton Catholic School, you provide a future financial benefit to our school and receive an income tax deduction. When you name Seton Catholic School the beneficiary of 1% of your retirement plan assets and leave other less-taxed assets to your children, you can positively impact Seton Catholic School and leave more for your loved ones.
Gifts of Securities or Stock Transfers
Giving appreciated stock to Seton Catholic School is a wonderful way to help us continue our mission and for the owner to receive tax benefits on such gifts. It allows Seton to receive a larger gift than if it was sold by the owner and the proceeds donated to the school. In turn, the owner receives a greater tax deduction by giving the stock directly to Seton Catholic School. Contact April Baratian (330) 342-4200 ext. 232 or by email at email@example.com for more information.
A simple, flexible and versatile way to ensure we can continue our work for years to come is a gift in your will or living trust, known as a charitable bequest. A charitable bequest is one or two sentences in your will or living trust that leave to Seton Catholic School a specific amount of money or gift contingent upon certain events or a percentage of your estate. By including a bequest to Seton in your will or living trust, you are ensuring that we can continue our mission for years to come. Your gift also entitles your estate to an unlimited federal estate tax charitable deduction. Contact April Baratian (330) 342-4200 ext. 232 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

"What is it that makes Seton so great? Is it the ease and warmth in the way administration, faculty and staff greet the parents anytime of the day? The ability of faculty or administration to discipline effectively and move on with the student's integrity intact? The exchange of a greeting from a student to a parent in the hallway? Or that there is genuine laughter, happiness and pre-teen giddiness coming from the middle school hallway? It is all of these things and much more!" - Seton Parent
