Tax Credits (EITC/OSTC/SPE)
EITC & OSTC Giving Options
Our Lady of Lourdes Regional School is an approved organization able to accept gifts through both the OSTC (Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit) and EITC (Educational Incentive Tax Credit) programs. Corporate donors who designate gifts within these programs can earn up to 90% in tax credits for the total amount of their donations.
Gifts provided under these vital programs are directly applied to providing tuition assistance and financial aid to Lourdes students and their families, helping to make a Lourdes education accessible to more of our community’s amazing youth and young adults.

Individual SPE Gifts
A Special Purpose Entity (SPE) allows Pennsylvania individuals to redirect 90% of personal state income taxes to Lourdes. SPE is based on tax liability, not income, therefore each taxpayer’s situation will differ. SPE gifts are directly applied to tuition assistance to help make a Lourdes education accessible to a greater number of students around our community.

Memorials & Honors
Our Lady of Lourdes Regional School Memorials are tributes to those whose love and memories are treasured. Relatives, friends, associates, and special occasions (such as a birthday or an anniversary) can also be memorialized or honored through gifts to the Lourdes Memorial Fund.
As Catholics, we believe in life after death and that we will spend eternal life with Jesus Christ and our departed loved ones. We miss those who have died and have passed into eternal life. Our memories of our loved ones are precious and we seek ways to celebrate their lives and what they represented. A memorial in their name is a fitting tribute.
We are particularly grateful when at the death of a loved one, the newspaper obituary designates memorial contributions to Our Lady of Lourdes Regional School in lieu of flowers. Over the years this has been a great blessing. The spiritual rewards of remembrances are multiplied many times through the accomplishments of the faculty, staff, and students of Lourdes Regional School, creating an enduring legacy of good works in memory of, or in honor of loved ones.
Our Annual Memorial Mass is an occasion to honor members of our Lourdes Family who have gone to their eternal rest. Names are added to the wall each year when contributions in memory of or in honor of, a particular person total $500.00 or more. We welcome our special benefactors to our Memorial Mass in the spring where engraved name plates are presented and blessed. They will be placed on the memorial wall outside St. Bernadette Chapel at a later date.
Through gifts to Lourdes Regional School, families and friends are creating a perpetual remembrance of loved ones as they elect to share in our ministry of Catholic education. We thank you for your support.
