Giving to Prep
NOTE: The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act that became law in late March 2020 includes the following provisions for individuals in 2020: (1) Individuals who do not itemize may deduct up to $300 for cash contributions made to public charities (e.g., Creighton Prep) in 2020, and (2) individuals who do itemize can elect to deduct cash contributions to public charities up to 100% of their adjusted gross income (AGI) in 2020. (This is up from 60%.) We recommend that you consult an advisor about these provisions to determine the tax implications for you.
Support from the Creighton Prep community is essential to the success of the school, its students, faculty and staff. It's largely due to the generous gifts received from alumni, parents, grandparents and friends of the school that we are able to provide a rich and diverse Catholic education in the Jesuit tradition.
There are a number of ways to give to Prep. Please select the one you prefer.
Support Prep through a one-time donation or a recurring gift via a credit or debit card at our GiveOnline page.

If you are giving in honor of a specific person or to a specific fund or campaign such as the Alumni AMDG Fund, the Parent AMDG Fund or another campaign, please note this in the memo portion of your check.
Give by Electronic Funds Transfer
Call Grace Cominoli, Donor Relations, at 402.548.3881 to arrange an automated withdrawal from a checking or savings account.
A gift of appreciated stock may entitle the donor to an income tax charitable deduction for the fair market value of the stock on the effective date of the gift and also avoid capital gain tax. In many cases it is more advantageous for a donor to donate the securities to a qualified organization than to sell the securities and donate the cash proceeds. However, we recommend that you consult your tax advisor for the best treatment considering your personal circumstances.
