Support St. Ignatius of Antioch School
We welcome support from our school and parish family as well as the community at large. Gifts and support help us to offer more to enrich the lives of our students as well as keep tuition affordable for all families who desire a St. Ignatius education for their children. There are many ways that you can help support the education of our students:
If you can contribute financially or have talents that you can share with the school, please contact Mrs. Mary Ann DiTommaso, school principal, at 215-493-3867 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Many employers will match your contributions to the school, and our business office would be more than happy to assist you with the necessary paperwork if your company offers such an option.
In our strive to stay ahead in the realm of classroom technology, St. Ignatius welcomes the donation of computer and audio visual equipment. For more information, please contact Ryan Merrick, Assistant Principal, at 215-493-3867 or email@example.com. Gifts to help us purchase additional technology are also welcome. You can give by calling the school, 215-493-3867.
Contributions for student scholarships can also be made via Pennsylvania's EITC Tax Credit Program for individuals and businesses. Contributions can be restricted to use by families in need at St. Ignatius and can often be matched by your employer. Please contact the school office 215-493-3867 or visit the BLOCS website for more information: www.blocs.org.
