Memorial and Tribute Gifts

Memorial and tribute gifts support annual giving unless otherwise designated. They are a wonderful way of memorializing or honoring a friend or loved one. You can donate online or by mail – SCA Advancement, 4210 Harding Pike, Nashville, TN 37205.

A card is sent to the family of the deceased or honored individual acknowledging the gift.

Matching Gifts

A matching gift is an employer-sponsored program to encourage philanthropy among company employees in support of their chosen charity or organization. The matching gift program enables many donors to increase the impact of their contributions as many companies will match dollar for dollar, and some will double or triple match employee gifts.

Your human resources representative can tell you if your company has a matching gift program and can provide you with the necessary information for you to inform the school. For more information, please call the Development Office at 615.383.3230.

A gift of stock can also be donated to St. Cecilia Academy. To donate stock, please notify Deb Fay or call 615.383.3230, advising of the name of the stock, the number of shares, and any and all restrictions that apply to the use of the proceeds.
