Ways to Give

Gifts of Stock

We gladly accept gifts of stock. Please contact Dianne Irwin at (206) 622-7151 or dirwin@odea.org.

Matching Gifts

Many corporations will match donations made by employees. Be sure to check with your employer and send us the appropriate paperwork or use your company’s online system. This is a great way to make the most out of your gift!

Endowment Gifts

Endowment funds are permanently invested pools of money that produce sustained annual income to support designated needs. At O’Dea High School we have a variety of named scholarship funds you can help support that benefit deserving students. Or you can start an endowment fund in the name of someone close to you.

Gifts to the O’Dea Foundation

The mission of the O’Dea Foundation is to provide assistance for charitable, religious and educational purposes, specifically but not limited to, assisting its primary beneficiary, O’Dea High School. Each year the Foundation grants approximately 5% of its assets to O’Dea to support financial aid at our school.

Planned Gifts

There are many ways you can support O’Dea High School into the future through a planned gift. This is an excellent opportunity to ensure future students have the opportunity to experience the traditions and brotherhood of O’Dea. Options include:

  • Name O’Dea in your will or through a living trust.
  • Set up a trust fund to benefit your heirs and O’Dea.

Tributes and Memorials

Making tribute and memorial gifts are great ways to recognize people you love. If you make a gift in honor of a living friend or family member we will send a note to that person to let them know you made a gift in their honor.  If you make a gift in memory of someone deceased we will send a note to that person’s closest family member to let them know of your generosity.
