Establishing Scholarships

Class of 1969 Scholarship Recipient 2022
Scholarship Mass and Breakfast 2024 Event Information

Scholarship supporters are invited to join Dr. Piwowarski and the development team to meet their scholars for the 2023-24 school year. Please RSVP by April 26, 2024. Contact Liz Brennan at with questions.



Join the dozens of Resurrection College Prep High School donors who help students achieve their dream of a Resurrection education. Creating a named scholarship is one way you can assist students and leave a legacy to Resurrection. It is also a very meaningful way to honor a friend, family member, or a respected teacher. As a scholarship donor, you will receive thank you notes from the students who benefit from your generosity, as well as an annual progress report.

Endowed Scholarships

Endowed scholarship funds are designed to be permanent and perpetual; they can be created with a gift in the amount of $10,000 or more. Make a one-time gift or fulfill the commitment over a period of up to five (5) years. The principal of the fund is invested and remains untouched and the interest income is awarded annually to students. This way, the endowment can last into perpetuity.

Establishing Scholarship Criteria

As a scholarship donor, you have the opportunity to choose the name of the scholarship, as well as the criteria. The Resurrection Development Office staff is available to help you create the criteria for your scholarship.

Administration of Scholarships

When a donor decides to establish a scholarship, a scholarship agreement is drafted, which governs the establishment and awarding of the scholarship funds. Scholarship applications submitted by students can be reviewed based on the selection criteria by either the donor or a selection committee established by the school. Scholarship donors are invited to the school for the presentation of the scholarships and to meet their recipients in person.

Tax Benefits of Establishing a Scholarship

An outright gift in the form of cash or appreciated securities will allow you to receive immediate tax benefits in the year you make the gift to Resurrection College Prep High School.

You can also provide for your scholarship in your estate plans. Estate gifts or planned gifts are an easy way to establish a scholarship for the future without affecting your current income or assets.

Giving to an Existing Scholarship

If you are interested in providing funding for scholarship purposes, but you are not ready to establish a named scholarship, contributing to an existing scholarship is an opportunity that may fulfill your intentions. Simply earmark your contribution for the Hope Scholarship fund or select an existing scholarship from among the list of current Resurrection College Prep scholarships.
