Building on Excellence, Guided by Faith Capital Campaign

Capital Campaign Gift Form

After months of planning, involving hundreds of school stakeholders, SHDHS is excited to publicly announce our first major building campaign in more than 20 years; the “Building on Excellence, Guided by Faith” capital campaign.

As of October 2017, we are on the cusp of hitting our original $6 million funding goal to build the new Fine Arts addition.  And while we’re very excited about all that this new addition will add to our campus, there is still more work to do. To truly complete our campaign and reach all of our funding objectives, including enhancements to our STEM and Technology programs, we are now working towards raising an additional $1.5 to $2 million in funds above our original goal.

We would love to add you to the growing list of supporters who have so generously given to this transformational project. Please see below for more information or to give your support today. Gifts can be made as one time payments or pledged across as many as five years. There are also a variety of recognition opportunities available for gifts ranging from $1,000 up to $1,000,000.

It is still our goal to break ground on this transformational project by late spring of 2018 and, with the prayers and support of many, we can make this dream a reality. If you have questions, either about volunteering your time or making a financial gift, please contact SHDHS Advancement Director Beckie D. Middendorf at bmiddendorf@shdhs.org or 859.525.5848.

Plans for our expansion project currently include:

  • A 650+ seat multipurpose auditorium for hosting student performances, school assemblies, lectures, award banquets, community gatherings, and more. This auditorium will be the newest and largest auditorium in the diocese;
  • Classroom space to serve our Fine Arts department, which includes band, visual arts, chorus, chamber choir, and drama;
  • A multi-purpose gathering/lobby area for hosting school and community events;
  • A dedicated art gallery for hosting student, as well as traveling, art displays;
  • An alumni gallery for displaying St. Henry memorabilia;
  • New office/meeting/workstation space for faculty and staff.
  • New office/meeting space for our Advancement Department;
  • A beautiful Grotto to serve as an outdoor campus sanctuary.
  • Expanded  upgraded space within the current school building to serve an enhanced STEM curriculum;
  • New office/meeting space for our Guidance Department;

SHDHS knows that this vision will only be made possible through the prayers and financial support of many. The steering committee is currently working to gain financial support from individuals and foundations at the top two giving levels:

  • “Major Gifts” ($25,000 and above)
  • “Special Gifts” ($10,000 and above)

The final giving phase, which will seek support from the entire community, is set to begin in the fall of 2017. If you would like to participate, either through the volunteering of your time or a financial gift, please contact SHDHS Advancement Director Beckie D. Middendorf at bmiddendorf@shdhs.org or 859.525.5848.

There are several ways to invest in the future of St. Henry District High School, all of which are tax deductible. We invite you to participate in one or more of the following:

INVESTMENTS OF CASH

Commitments may be paid over a five-year period or any appropriate timetable. Spreading out the payment terms of your investment, with the option of making annual, semi-annual or quarterly payments, provides ultimate flexibility and might help you stretch to a higher level of support.

INVESTMENTS OF STOCK OR SECURITIES

Gifts of stock, one-time gifts or multiple gifts over a period of years, are an ideal vehicle for both you and St. Henry District High School. In gifting appreciated stock, you avoid all capital gains taxes, receive full benefit of a charitable contribution and provide us with a significant and immediate gift. Please contact the SHDHS development office for transfer instructions.

INVESTMENT THROUGH A DEFERRED OR PLANNED GIVING VEHICLE

Planned gifts provide a great source of funding for the long-term health of SHDHS. Giving through an estate provides a gift of a lifetime. Life insurance, annuities, trusts, or investing through your will are excellent ways to make a lifelong testimony to an institution that has profoundly impacted your life.

We invite your participation through planned or deferred giving as a secondary way to support this important campaign. Let us know your intention so we may provide the appropriate letter of intent for your signature.
