Ways to Give

“Over my past four years here, I’ve learned why my mother and all her friends loved Regina so much. It was because it was truly magical. I’ve met the best people, taken the best classes, had the best teachers, experienced the best of life, all because of Regina.”

-Bridie Daly, Class of 2021

 
There are many ways to make a gift to Regina Dominican. The Advancement Office is ready to work with donors to fashion the most beneficial gift for you, your family, and Regina Dominican. Gifts to Regina Dominican are income tax-deductible to the full extent allowable by law. We invite you to consider the following options:
 

The Regina Fund

This way to give is by far the easiest and most common way to support Regina Dominican. The Regina Fund provides critically needed unrestricted support for programmatic enhancements, technology upgrades, tuition assistance, and annual operations and expenses not covered by tuition. There are two ways to make your gift:

  • Donate online.
  • Send a check (made out to Regina Dominican) and mail it to:
Regina Dominican
Advancement Office
701 Locust Road Wilmette, IL 60091
 
You may direct us to set up a payment schedule for payment by check and we will bill you monthly, quarterly, or semi-annually.

 

Veritas Society

The Veritas Society is a formal organization of lead benefactors to the Regina Dominican Fund. Membership in the society is accorded to those supporters whose donation has a cumulative annual value of $1,000 or more.

Each year, members of the Veritas Society gather at a private dinner with the President of Regina Dominican in recognition of their leadership role in a successful annual campaign.

 

Dominican Heritage Society

Supporters who include Regina Dominican in their estate plans are recognized as members of the Dominican Heritage Society. For more information, please click here.

Take a Seat Campaign

You can be a part of the Regina Dominican’s history by personalizing an auditorium seat in your name or that of a friend, loved one, classmate, favorite teacher, or a fond Regina memory. For more information, please click here.

 

Illinois Tax Credit Program - Invest in Kids

 

In August 2017, the Illinois legislature passed the Illinois Tax Credit Scholarship Program bill, Invest in Kids, which allows for a 75% income tax credit for individuals and corporations who make authorized contributions to a non-profit Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO). SGOs such as Empower Illinois and Big Shoulders will award scholarships to qualifying students based on family income. For more information, please click here

 

Memorial

Your gift to Regina Dominican may be made in memory or in honor of someone. To share the news of an alumna or loved one's passing, please contact Elizabeth McCann. 

 

Matching Gifts

A matching gift by your company or organization extends your generosity by adding the matching amount to your own gift at no additional expense to you. It is easy to make a matching gift. Simply: Contact your Human Resources Department and inquire about your company’s matching employee donations policy. Follow the procedure they recommend. Designate Regina Dominican as your gift recipient.

 

Event Sponsorship

We have two event sponsorship opportunities. The Booster Club Golf Outing in the fall and the Black and White Dinner Auction at the beginning of the school year. For more information, please click here.

 

A Gift of Securities

A donor that owns appreciated securities can benefit in two ways by making a gift of securities to Regina Dominican. First, they will be able to claim a charitable income tax deduction for the full value of the shares, and second, they will be able to avoid the capital gains tax that would have been due if they sold the shares. When making a gift of securities, it is important that you arrange for a direct transfer of your securities to Regina Dominican and not sell them yourself. Contact the Regina Dominican Advancement Office for additional information.
