Parent Pledge Program
Parents play an important role at Serra, not only in their sons' education but also in the life of the school. Incoming freshman families are asked to make a tax-deductible parent pledge for each year their son attends Serra to help us continue to invest in the growth and change needed to assure the excellence of our programs and faculty - ultimately assuring the financial stability of the school for future Serra students.
Parents are asked to make an annual contribution of $1,500 which can be paid through our direct debit program on a monthly basis. Most importantly, our goal is 100% parent participation at whatever level families can afford. We know from experience that our alumni, foundations and other benefactors look to the commitment of parents in deciding their own level of support, particularly as we ask them for larger gifts for program enhancements and capital improvements.
Each year donors are invited to a special evening honoring the generosity of parents, alumni, parents of alumni and friends who make an annual contribution to the school at the President Circle Level ($1,500 and above).
Each gift from you can mean twice, or even three times, as much by taking advantage of your employer's Matching Gift program. Check with your employer's human resources department for the matching gift form.
Remember, all annual gifts are 100% tax-deductible in accordance with Federal tax laws.
