Ways to Support Holy Cross

Thinking about giving Holy Cross Catholic School a financial gift?  Gifts of every size help our families continue to send their students, put resources in the hands of teachers, and help us strengthen and grow an already vibrant school.  There are several ways to get involved and help us continue the mission.


Holy Cross Annual Fund

The simplest way to give a monetary gift is through our secure online form.  Just click here and you are on your way!  Every single dollar counts.

You are also welcome to mail your tax deductible donations to:

Holy Cross Catholic School
c/o Carolyn Moatz
144 East Mount Airy Avenue

Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program &
Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) Program

Did you know that most Pennsylvania businesses qualify for a tax credit when they support our school? Up to 90% or more of your scholarship donation can be paid back, dollar for dollar in the form of a tax credit. The subsequent federal tax deduction reduces the cost of your contribution to pennies on the dollar.

EITC/OSTC funding further closes the gap between Holy Cross Catholic School’s expenses and our family’s ability to pay, allowing our vulnerable students to receive quality education in a neighborhood with no other options for affordably educating their children.
