Ways to Give
Your support of DePaul College Prep helps make an extraordinary Vincentian, Catholic education accessible to young women and men in Chicago. The gap between the true cost of educating each student and the tuition charged is $3,600. Your contributions help close the tuition gap to guarantee current and future DePaul Prep students have access to college prep, Advanced Placement (AP), Honors, International Baccalaureate (IB) and dual enrollment courses through our academic partnership with DePaul University. Give today to ensure that DePaul Prep remains a racially, religiously, socially and economically diverse high school serving the families of Chicago.

Workplace giving is an easy and efficient way to make tax-deductible donations to DePaul College Prep, typically with donations taken directly from your paycheck from organizations such as United Way.
Gifts of Stocks & Securities
Gifts of appreciated stock is a wonderful way to help DePaul Prep continue its mission and for the donor to receive tax benefits on such gifts. If you itemize your deductions, you can claim a charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of the donated securities and avoid capital gains tax. If you no longer itemize, donating appreciated stock still provides the benefit of not having to pay tax on the appreciation. This allows DePaul College Prep to receive a larger gift than if it was sold by the owner and the owner receives a greater tax deduction by giving the stock directly to the school.
Donor Advised Funds
A Donor Advised Fund (DAF) is a type of giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support DePaul College Prep. DAFs are an excellent way to both simplify your giving and facilitate your strategic philanthropic goals that allow charitably inclined individuals, families, and businesses to make tax-deductible charitable donations.
The COVID-19 CARES Act provides increased tax incentives for individual charitable giving made to organizations like DePaul College Prep. Please consider this as you make your giving plans to support our students. For more information, please visit the IRS Cares Act site.
