Foundation Overview

About the Regis St. Mary Foundation

The primary mission of the Regis St. Mary Foundation is to enhance, promote and plan for the financial security of Regis St. Mary Catholic School. The Foundation manages capital campaigns generating revenue as needed. In addition, the Foundation holds existing funds which generate interest income. The Foundation also manages a number of named funds and restricted funds, which donors have designated toward a specific scholarship or project.

Funds managed by the Foundation enhance the quality of education which Regis St. Mary students receive. Examples of Foundation support include but are not limited to:

  • tuition assistance
  • capital projects (such as the Regis gym and roof, fitness center, and boilers)
  • enhancement of classroom instruction including instructional technology
  • professional development of teachers and staff

Regis St. Mary students will be the leaders of tomorrow with the skills, knowledge and confidence to realize their dreams. Our vision is to ensure that the school is able to provide them with the necessary educational platform to make them successful.

Building Our Future Capital Campaign

Since Spring 2019, school leaders have joined with the directors of the Regis St. Mary Foundation to collaborate on the preparation and planning of the Regis St. Mary Catholic School Building Our Future Capital Campaign. We are seeking support from all constituents and will gratefully celebrate all gifts, large and small, that help us reach our goal and allow us to fund the critical goals of this campaign.

Legacy Society

A Regis St. Mary Catholic School education is an investment in the future of young people and the world they inherit. The Legacy Society honors those who have the vision and generosity to include Regis St. Mary or the Foundation in their estate plans. Members who designate Regis St. Mary or the Foundation as the beneficiary of a bequest, trust, retirement plan, life insurance policy, or other estate provision join those who have committed to secure the future and preserve the past. Legacy gifts, unless otherwise designated, will build endowment, secure financial stability, and enhance planning. These gifts provide future generations of students the opportunity to experience the education of Regis St. Mary Catholic School. No matter your story, arranging a planned gift for Regis St. Mary could be your legacy.
