Other Ways to Give
SHC relies on annual support from parents, alumni, parents of alumni and friends. We are so grateful for the financial contributions that allow us to continue to provide an academically rigorous, Catholic education to our students and challenge them toward intellectual excellence. But, financial contributions are not the only way to contribute to SHC. Your gifts of time, personal items and partnership opportunities are also important to SHC.
Here are some other ways you can give to SHC:

In coordination with the St. Vincent de Paul Society of San Francisco, SHC accepts operational and nonoperational cars, trucks, boats or other recreational vehicles as donations. SHC splits the proceeds of the auction of the vehicle with the St. Vincent de Paul Society of San Francisco. Vehicle Donation Gifts offer immediate tax deductions for the full fair market value of the vehicle. Contact Director of Development Theresa Flynn Houghton ’96 at 415.775.6626 ext. 609 to find out more information.
Matching gifts from participating companies allow donors to multiply their gifts to SHC. Your company may offer a program that will match your contribution to SHC dollar for dollar. Consult your human resources department to see if your employer matches charitable donations. A partial list of companies that offer matching programs can be found here.
Many companies enable employees to make donations through a payroll deduction program or United Way campaign. Contact your human resources department to see if your company has a program, and designate SHC as a beneficiary.
