St. Paul School is blessed by the generosity of so many benefactors, alumni, school families, parishioners, and friends who have invested in the future of our students, teachers, and school by donating a financial gift. These gifts help to support our programs (academic, religious, fine arts, and athletics), our technology needs and upgrades, and our tuition assistance fund. There are many ways to make a gift to St. Paul School:
Cash Donation
Cash or check donations will be put to immediate use. We can also now accept credit card donations through PayPal

Memorial Donations

St. Paul School accepts memorial donations in memory of loved ones. Families are notified of all donations made to the school.

  • The “Fr. Tom Scholarship Fund” awards money to families searching for a Catholic Education but in need of financial assistance.

Stock that has increased in value is a popular asset used for charitable giving, once it has been held for a minimum of one year.

Retirement Plan Assets
To maximize the value of a retirement account, you may consider making a lifetime gift of its after-tax values to a tax-exempt deferred giving plan.

Savings Bonds
Likely the nation’s most widely held appreciated asset, Savings Bonds that may have stopped growing can be put to good use. A tax-wise use for your appreciated savings bonds is to support a cause you care about.

Real Estate
Using real estates, such as your home, farm, or commercial property, to fund a gift allows you to preserve your cash assets, receive significant tax and income advantages, and make a larger charitable gift than anticipated.

Closely Held Stock
A donation of your closely held stock is a great way for you to make a sizable charitable contribution while realizing valuable tax benefits.

Life Insurance
Donating your life insurance could be a wonderful way to fulfill your desire to support the mission of St. Paul School. By naming St. Paul School the beneficiary of an existing policy, you make good use of your resources and expand your ability to make a significant gift.

To make a charitable gift by will, it’s best to meet with your attorney to discuss and update your will. Tell him/her exactly what you want to do and to whom you wish to make a gift.

For more information on making a financial gift to our school, please contact the St. Paul School Development Office at 304-748-5225. We thank you for your consideration!

Each year, donations from families and friends of St. Paul School help students benefit from all that our school has to offer.  The St. Paul Annual Fund is our annual appeal for contributions from alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents, parents, staff, and friends of St. Paul School to help defray the costs of a Catholic education that tuition revenue alone does not cover.

These funds will support all areas of St. Paul School, including religious activities, instructive materials, technology upgrades, building improvements, and tuition assistance.  Please join us and help us reach 100% participation from the entire school community!  Every gift counts.

The St. Paul School Annual Fund runs from July 1st through June 30th to coincide with our fiscal year. Contributions are happily accepted at any time.

We are so thankful for our supportive and generous community members that have shared in the joy of giving this year.

SPS Annual Fund Pledge Form


St. Paul School is THRILLED to participate in the 4th Annual, Diocese-wide, One Mission One Day online giving campaign.
Last year, St. Paul School raised over $30,000.00 from over 300 donors!

WHEN: Tuesday, May 2, 2023


WHAT: One Mission, One Day is a 24-hour online giving campaign that directly benefits our school and our students. Proceeds from the previous campaigns helped MANY of our families by contributing to our financial aid program as well as much-needed upgrades to our classrooms.


St. Paul School initiated our first giving society during the 2019-20 school year. The Emerald Giving Society is a means to honor our highest level of donors to St. Paul School. These donors are those who support the school at a level of $1,000.00 or more per household and/or business through the current Annual Fund Campaign. Donors can achieve this level through any combination of personal giving, through an employment match opportunity, or through a donation by a business that the donor owns if applicable. As unrestricted gifts to the annual fund, the support provided by Emerald Society Members allow the school’s administration to complete projects and upgrades to the school that otherwise would not have been financially possible. Support from the Society can also be utilized to ensure that the school can meet budgetary requirements and remain in a secure financial position in the future. Pledged support is also critically important to the school for planning purposes. Please visit the links below for further information or contact our Advancement Office at 304-748-5225 or email

Born August 16, 1936–Died April 30, 2008

Pastor of St. Paul Parish
1983 — 2002

With deep love, unfailing dedication and a wonderful good humor, he served our parish community and the people of West Virginia. May the Risen Jesus now welcome him to the joyous company of all the saints in God’s Kingdom.

A Lasting Memorial and Tribute

Given Fr. Tom’s love of children and St. Paul Catholic School, the Pastoral and Finance Councils of the parish have established the Fr. Tom Scholarship Fund

This permanent endowment in the West Virginia Catholic Foundation will provide scholarships for families of the parish in need who wish to send their children to our school. The principal of this fund will not be touched; only the interest will be used. The Councils established this Fund with the first donation of $1000 from the parish. Additional checks may be made payable to St. Paul Church or School.
