Q. Why does Ascension Academy ask for gifts in addition to tuition?

A. Tuition at Ascension, like all private schools, does not entirely cover the cost of each student’s education. The Annual Fund gifts, special events and individual gifts from major donors make up 40 percent of Ascension’s budget, while tuition covers 60 percent.

We understand that not every family can participate financially in every giving opportunity available. At a minimum, we do ask each and every family to carefully consider a gift to the Annual Fund. Even small contributions can go a long way in helping to cover the many needs of our school. Giving is a very personal event and we accept all contributions graciously and encourage you to contact us if you wish to designate a gift to a specific program.

Q. How are Annual Fund Contributions Used?

A. Gifts to the Annual Fund go directly to the operations of the school, making up a portion of the budget. These monies allow Ascension to provide educational opportunities and support the faculty who prepare our students for college. By supporting Ascension through either specific gifts or undesignated giving, you are ensuring quality education for our students.

Every gift makes a difference. We have many areas where giving can enhance and support the programs offered to our students.

Q. How can I make a gift?

A. We accept gifts in many forms. Cash, appreciated assets, property, bequests and in-kind items are all appreciated. To make a gift, you may call our Development Department at 806-382-1202 or to give online, CLICK HERE.

Q. Who can I contact if I have a question about my giving, need a duplicate receipt or want to see if I have paid my pledge?

A. If you have a question about a gift or how to give, or just need a printed receipt, please contact Charee Godwin-Smith, Director of Development at 806-382-1202.
