Make a difference at Totino-Grace.

The TG Fund

The Totino-Grace Fund is the foundation of our annual giving program at Totino-Grace High School. Simply, giving to the TG Fund is the best way possible for parents, alumni, grandparents, friends to help make a difference in the future of Totino-Grace students. Your commitment on an annual basis to the Totino-Grace Fund will help to raise necessary resources to meet the school's most pressing needs, such as:

  • Tuition assistance
  • Educator retention and development
  • Technology upgrades and other campus improvements
  • Student educational activities beyond the classroom.

 

Ways to Give

Matching Gifts

You can help make an even greater impact by securing a matching gift from your employer! Many companies offer a matching gift to nonprofits that their employees choose to support. 

To find out if your employer has a matching gift program, please contact your Human Resources Department. Many employers allow you to submit your gift online and it takes just a few minutes to double or even triple your gift!

Monthly Giving

Becoming a Totino-Grace monthly donor is easier than ever. You can make your support throughout the year automatically on a monthly basis through a credit card or electronic fund transfer. When you become a TG Sustainer, you join an exclusive group who provide a stronger foundation and change the lives of the students we serve. To become a monthly donor, please contact David Olson, Annual Fund Director at 763-586-6327.

Gifts of Stock or Securities

Making a gift of stock or mutual funds allows you to support TG while realizing benefits for yourself. When you donate appreciated stock or mutual funds you have held more than one year, you can reduce or even eliminate federal capital gains taxes on the transfer. You are also entitled to a federal income tax charitable deduction based on the fair market value of the securities at the time of the transfer. 

Making a gift of stock to support Totino-Grace is as easy as instructing your broker to transfer the shares. Contact Richard Olson 763-586-6335 at for more information on completing your stock gift.

Donor-advised Funds

Totino-Grace welcomes gifts from donor-advised funds, which is like a charitable savings account. If you have a DAF, you can recommend a gift is granted to TG at any time to support the student experience. 

Gifts from Individual Retirement Account (IRA)

If you are at least 70.5 years old, you can make a Qualified Charitable Distribution of up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to Totino-Grace. This gift can satisfy part of your required minimum distribution (RMD) for the year. 

Legacy Gifts and Planned Giving

There are many ways to leave a gift that will continue your legacy at Totino-Grace, including bequests and life income gifts such as gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts. In all cases, a planned gift can enable you to make a larger gift to Totino-Grace than you might have otherwise thought possible - one that will create opportunities for TG students for generations to come.

If your gift is for general support of TG, please use the following language in your will or living trust: 

"I hereby give, devise, and bequeath to Totino-Grace High School, Taxpayer Identification Number 41-6049228, [INSERT AMOUNT OR PERCENT OF ESTATE] to be used to further the mission of Totino-Grace at the discretion of the president of the high school."
