The Salesian Call

Give to support Catholic education


What is the Salesian Call?

The Salesian Call is our appeal for general operating funds for the Bosco Catholic School System. It is comprised of gifts from alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty and staff, friends, and area businesses. The name comes from St. John Bosco's followers, the Salesians. The Call is our call to action to support Catholic Education in our parishes.


Why is it needed?

There is always a gap between the amount of tuition and parish support received and what it costs to actually educate a student. For this reason, nearly every independent school in the country, from elementaries to universities, relies on an annual fund to make up the difference. The goal of the campaign is to supplement the general operating budget of the school to keep tuition affordable while continually enhancing programs and attracting and retaining the best faculty . 


Why make a gift?

Only with generous and consistent support of people like you can the Bosco Catholic School System provide and maintain the highest quality educational experience possible for our students today and in the future. Additionally, gifts to the Salesian Call provide Bosco Catholic System supporters the opportunity to make tax deductible gifts at any level.

Can I give gifts other than by cash or check?

We will gladly accept gifts of all kinds including credit card payments and direct debits from checking or savings accounts. If you are interested in giving gifts of stock, directing distributions from a retirement account, or making a bequest to Bosco Catholic School System, please contact the Development Office.
