  • Catholic Education Fund (CEF-SGO)

    The Catholic Education Foundation (CEF) for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati has been certified by the State of Ohio as a Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO). And the great news is that gifts to the CEF-SGO can be directed to Elder High School! 
    Ohio taxpayers who donate to SGOs may be able to claim a dollar-for-dollar non-refundable tax credit on their state income tax return for up to $750 per donor (up to $1,500 if married and filing jointly). The benefit of credit will not be any more than the total Ohio tax before credit. 
    This is a great way to support Elder High School and benefit from this new Ohio Income Tax Credit. Currently, all contributions will be directed to an aid fund for Elder’s neediest students. We are evaluating options for aid fund designations. We ask that your gift(s) to the CEF-SGO be over and above your current support of Elder High School. 

    For additional information or to check out our CEF-SGO Frequently Asked Questions page, please click on 'READ MORE' below and/or consult your tax advisor.

  • Memorial Gifts

    Many generous grads and friends of Elder elect to have memorial gifts directed to the school upon their passing:
    • Your gift will be applied to the program at Elder specified by the family of the deceased.
    • If the family has not specified a program, then you may opt to direct your gift to the general scholarship fund, a specific scholarship fund, or to a school program of your choosing (i.e. art department, athletics, band, glee club, etc.).

  • Planned Giving

    Help support Elder’s vital mission of Catholic education through participation in our Planned Giving Program by including Elder in your estate planning. In addition, we invite you to join over 165 others as a member of the Father Schmitt Society, our planned giving society named in honor of Elder’s first principal, Rev. William G. Schmitt.

    Planned gifts can take many shapes. The most common form is through a bequest/will. A second form is through life income agreements, such as a charitable remainder trust. And a third form is through a life insurance policy.

  • Stock Transfer

    Stock can be donated to Elder High School or to The Altiora Fund to fulfill Annual Fund commitments, pledges to a capital campaign, creating or increasing an endowed scholarship, or fund annual scholarships. When considering a stock donation, it is advisable to first consult with your tax advisor and accountant.
