Stand With Saint Bernard

Saints, your support is critical to secure the future of Saint Bernard School.

While many years may have passed since your time here, I want you to know that the magic that spawned the phrase “Once a Saint, Always a Saint”, still exists.

As a result of the Diocesan bankruptcy, the school campus and building were purchased by the Mohegan Tribe. They are emerging as wonderful partners with a desire to see the school succeed, and it is providential that sacred land once belonging to them, has been returned.  They have provided a 20-year lease for one dollar per year, with the clear message that if we are here in 20 years the lease will be renewed.

While the land and building have been saved, we need your help to continue operating. As a private Catholic school, we rely solely on tuition and donations to cover operating expenses. 

Your gift to The Fund for Saint Bernard directly benefits our students; providing tuition assistance to 62% of our students.  Currently only 3% of our 11,000 alumni contribute each year. Please help us increase that number this year to reach 5% or beyond!

We ask you to Stand with Saint Bernard and make a donation to preserve the Saints legacy for future generations.

Sincerely,
 
Don Macrino
Head of School

Retirement Giving


The IRS requires those 73 and older to make Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) from their retirement accounts before the end of the year.

Now is when you have to pay taxes on portions of the money from IRAs or 401-Ks. You can designate a non-profit like St. Bernard School as the direct recipient of some of the money!

Your donation to SBS goes directly from your retirement fund to the school — never touching your hands and never resulting in any tax. (The IRS says you can start making these tax-free donations from your retirement funds at age 70 ½ — though you’re not required to begin taking your RMDs until 73.)Check out How to set up a QCD (Qualified charitable distribution)
