St. Bernard prides itself on a legacy of generosity dating back to our founding in 1891. Since then it has remained strong because of the St. Bernard Family: alumni, faculty, staff, parents, and friends of the School and Abbey that want to see our good work continue. Without this kind and generous support St. Bernard would be unable to realize our mission of educating young men and women in the Benedictine tradition.
Giving to St. Bernard demonstrates your commitment to the School and Abbey. We rely on your generosity to continue our good work. These gifts are critical to the School and Abbey’s ability to minister to and serve all, guided by our motto in body, mind, and spirit — Corpus – Mens – Spiritus.
Your gifts are vital to maintaining St. Bernard’s reputation of quality and excellence. Major donors and grant foundations often look at our percentage of giving among our board members, faculty/staff, current parents, alumni, alumni families, and friends of the School and Abbey. Our giving level often helps determine whether a gift or grant award to St. Bernard is a wise investment. Donors and foundations want to invest in an organization, like St. Bernard, that invests in itself.
Your gift, no matter the amount, truly generates lasting impact for St. Bernard. A gift of any size is always appreciated. Last year, gifts to St. Bernard of $500 or less accounted for 95% of all gifts received. As 501(c)(3) organizations, your gifts to St. Bernard Abbey and Preparatory School are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
