Dominican High School raises over $1,000,000 annually to support our mission of providing a quality Catholic, college-preparatory education based on the five core Sinsinawa values: truth, compassion, justice, community and partnership. Monies raised each year come from various sources including:
Annual Fund Donations
Contributions to the Annual Fund Appeal, Dominican’s largest funding source outside of tuition, offset current year operating expenses. The Annual Fund supports the academic, spiritual, social and extra-curricular experiences which directly impact Dominican students. Yearly appeals are sent to DHS alums, current parents, past parents and friends. Gifts to the Annual Fund may be made through cash, check, credit card, stock/securities and online donations can be made here.
Current Parent Annual Fund Appeal
Dominican’s current parents have a special appreciation and understanding of the Dominican mission, as well as a personal investment in our community. We truly appreciate their commitment and support of the Annual Fund, which ensures their child will have amazing experiences and leadership opportunities only a community-focused school like Dominican can provide.

Yearly Fundraising Events
Many individuals and/or businesses support Dominican High School through the underwriting of various programs, projects and materials. Additionally, participation in various special events held throughout the year is both encouraged and appreciated. Some of these events include: Knightwalk, Dominican Auction and the Crowley Golf Outing.
Employer Matching Gifts
Matching gifts are donations made by companies which match all or a portion of charitable contributions of their employees. Contact your Human Resources or Community Relations Department at work to find out if your company has a matching gift program.
Dominican welcomes planned gifts in the form of Bequests, Gift Annuities, Trusts and Life Insurance. We are equipped to assist donors who wish to include any of these in their estate planning. Making a Bequest or any other type of planned gift may offer tax benefits to you the donor and provide long term support for Dominican High School.
St. Dominic Society
Donors to Dominican High School contributing $2,500 or more annually are recognized as St. Dominic Society members. Donations are cumulative and include gifts to the Annual Fund Appeal, fundraising events and scholarship funding.
