The loyalty and dedication of the alumni and friends for Elder is unparalleled. When asked years ago what makes Elder so unique and extraordinary one of our moms whose father, husband and sons attended the school commented “it’s in the walls”.
And so it is not surprising that many of our faithful want to continue helping the school after they are depart from this life, and many families fulfill this wish by requesting upon their death memorial donations to Elder from friends, acquaintances and family. These gifts are earmarked for numerous programs at Elder; for the scholarship endowment, family and individual scholarships, financial aid, music, athletic and other student programs as well as just helping the school. Our Memorial Program now spans nearly three decades and has helped many student programs. Since the inception of the program over $300,000 has been donated to Elder.
One way we thank participating families is through the annual Memorial Mass. On this special day each year family members of those deceased in the previous year are invited to a special Memorial Mass to join our faculty and students in prayer and celebration of the lives of those honored. The Memorial Program is just one more way that friends and the Elder family support our students.
Gifts In Honor Of
Many Elder Alumni reach that point in their lives when gifts mean more to them if they directly benefit a good cause or something to which they feel very passionate. And so in many instances, alums choose Elder as that cause and make a request to friends, acquaintances and family to donate to Elder High School rather than give them a gift for a birthday, anniversary, etc. These gifts can be made to honor this Elder Alumnus and then can be earmarked for numerous programs at Elder; for the scholarship endowment, family and individual scholarships, financial aid, music, athletic and other student programs as well as just helping the school. Giving Gifts in Honor of someone is just one more way that friends and the Elder family support our students.
