Giving Opportunities

Gifts from you—our alumni, parents and friends—are the foundation of the school's continued success. Your gift to Shelby County Catholic School  provides much-needed support for our programs, partnership in our mission, and an investment in the education of tomorrow’s leaders.  At Shelby County Catholic, we are mindful that today's Catholic Education opportunities were built on a foundation of support and good will by generations that came before us. We accept that torch and carry it with honor, keeping it well lit for the generations to come.
We are grateful for your support and commit to using your resources responsibly.

In Memory of and In Honor of gifts
