In the spring of 2012, the Ingram-White Castle Foundation granted a gift of $20,000 to be used to initiate an Adopt-A-Student program. The cost of a Catholic education is becoming increasingly difficult for many families today. Currently we have 80 families who demonstrate considerable financial need. The Adopt-A-Student program is a way to connect sponsors with those students and families.


There are many financial ways to participate in the Adopt-a-Student program. A sponsor can choose to make a tax-deductible donation in the following ways:

  • A recurring or one-time donation to cover 50%-100% of a student’s tuition for four years

  • A recurring monthly donation to cover 100% of a student’s tuition for one academic year

  • A recurring monthly donation to cover 50% of a student’s tuition for one academic year

  • A one-time donation in any amount

Make a difference today by becoming a sponsor in St. Francis DeSales High School Adopt-a-Student program. Your gift can go a long way in keeping a Catholic education alive for that very special student.
