Aberdeen Catholic Foundation

The Aberdeen Catholic Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation established to provide support to the Aberdeen Catholic School System, St. Mary's Parish, Sacred Heart Parish, and other charitable entities in the Aberdeen area. It serves as an endowment fund for the ACSS by making annual payments to the school out of the growth and income its investments produce. Gifts to the Aberdeen Catholic Foundation are tax-deductible.  As of June 30, 2015, the assets for Roncalli under management were valued at $6.5 million. Since its founding, the Foundation has received more than $4.3 million in donations and has made payments to the ACSS totaling nearly $4 million.

Many gifts to the Foundation have come through estate and other planned gifts. Your support of the Aberdeen Catholic Foundation today will pay dividends to Roncalli’s students for decades to come.
