Parent Giving

What is Parent Giving? 

Incarnate Word Academy, like most private schools in the U.S. has a gap between tuition and the actual cost of education. Contributions to the Annual Fund bridge this gap and have a direct and immediate impact on the student experience and what we are able to accomplish.

Every Family Is Called To Give

Every family, even those who pay full tuition, receives significant financial support from the Annual Fund. Since every IWA Angel benefits from the Annual Fund, every family is called upon to contribute to it every year. Your consistent support enables us to continue to provide a Catholic education that is unparalleled in our community.

How Does It Impact My Child?

Every student is impacted by the Annual Fund. Unrestricted dollars from the Annual Fund directly impact academic and athletic programs, STEM (advancing science, technology, engineering, and math education); fine arts; campus security, maintenance and enhancements; faculty development and continuing education; and needs based tuition assistance.

How Much Should I Contribute?

We hope you will consider any amount that feels comfortable for you and your family. All gifts matter and make a difference.

Gifts of $1,000 or more qualify you for membership in the President’s Circle, our Annual Fund giving society. Your gift can be paid in one installment, or can be divided into equal monthly payments.
