Gifts to the Verbum Dei High School have an immediate and purposeful impact in providing a quality, Catholic, college and career preparatory education to young men who live in South Los Angeles with limited educational options. Through your gift, you become part of the positive change that is taking place in America joining with a local school that is part of a 38-school network, 3,500 Corporate Partners, 65 University Partners, and other benefactors in providing the hope and the opportunity for college success to thousands of students across America today.
The cost of providing education for one Verbum Dei student is about $19,000. This year in keeping with the vision of St. Ignatius to make education affordable, Verbum Dei will charge $2,700 for tuition, yet on average we receive about $1,100, as we will turn no young man away for an inability to pay. This results in a large shortfall underwritten entirely through philanthropic support.
Verbum Dei High School is a 501(c)3 organization, and your contributions are fully tax deductible to the extent provided by law. Tax ID: 95-2225787.
Thank you for supporting Verbum Dei. Because of you, we are able to keep the school within the reach of deserving young men who will benefit for the rest of their lives from a college and career preparatory education. We believe you are helping us to change the world, one student at a time.
