How can I support SCL School?
SCL is very appreciative of all parents and community members who choose to donate their time to the school. We always appreciate help in the lunchroom, during recess, and even in classrooms. Volunteers must complete a volunteer process and background check before they are able to volunteer with the school. Click here for more information.
Donations and Corporate Matching
Double your donation to SCL through your company’s Matching Gifts Program!
Many corporations sponsor benefit programs which allow for employees to donate to a qualified nonprofit of their choice and the company will either match a percentage of the amount or dollar for dollar in some instances. This can be a great way to double your donation to St. Catherine Laboure School and help maintain the resources required to educate our kids as well as recruit new students. We encourage you to reach out to your company’s human resources department and ask if they sponsor a Matching Gifts Program. It only takes a few minutes and will reap dividends for years to come! Please note that many companies require that the charitable donation be received before December 31st in order to receive the match.
Our school participates in a number of fundraisers. Please see our fundraisers page to be updated on the multiple ways you can support SCL. You may be able to support the school using fundraisers that will not cost any extra to your household.

The school is always happy to receive any monetary donation. The main office will take cash and checks. Any checks should be made out to St. Catherine Laboure School.
Due in large part to the support of its community of alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty, staff, parishioners and friends, SCL is able to fulfill its mission to provide an excellent, faith-based Catholic education to its diverse community of students.
Since tuition covers only a portion of the full cost of education, SCL relies on the partnership and generosity of everyone to continue our mission of educating and invigorating the mind, spirit, heart, body and imagination of our students.
We invite you to review the opportunities available at the online giving link below to participate in our mission to champion the growth and development of our students. A gift of any amount make a difference and is greatly appreciated. Ask your employer if it has a matching gift program as you may be able to double your donation.
Please donate Dennis Uniforms that your family has outgrown or will no longer be needing. This allows us to have used uniforms available for purchase throughout the year.
