Endowment- Advancing the Mission of McGill-Toolen Catholic High School 

The McGill-Toolen Foundation Endowment sustains McGill-Toolen Catholic High School through fluctuations in enrollment and the economy, helps recruit and retain quality faculty and ensures our students have access to faith-enhancing experiences that deepen their faith.  A strong endowment ensures the McGill-Toolen Foundation carries out our mission in perpetuity.  The McGill-Toolen Foundation endowment grants an annual subsidy to the school that goes directly to the operational needs of the school. The endowment currently provides $100,000 annually to McGill-Toolen Catholic High School.  The annual endowment assists in keeping McGill-Toolen’s tuition affordable by reducing the need for tuition aid and builds financial security for the future.  



Memorial gifts to the McGill-Toolen Foundation meet two important needs. First, the gift allows you to express your feelings at the loss of a loved one and second, the gift supports McGill-Toolen's unique and time-honored tradition of educational excellence. Memorial gifts may be restricted or unrestricted. Acknowledgement cards are sent to the bereaved family indicating your memorial gift was made without disclosing the amount of the gift.


It may give you comfort to know your gift is helping us to advance our mission of providing a quality education which enables our students to grow in faith; search for knowledge and truth in mind, body, and spirit; and to continue building the Kingdom of God on earth.
