Ways to Give

Since our founders established Our Lady of the Hills College Prep in 2002, the generosity of donors has made our campus and mission possible. Parents, friends, foundations, and alumni have given and helped fund the growth of our facility, scholarship program, faculty development, and much more. 

As we push forward with growth, your financial support is needed more than ever for OLH College Prep to fulfill our important mission. 

Your support can come in many ways. 


Gifts of Securities or Stock

Donors may realize substantial tax savings by transferring appreciated stock to the schools prior to their sale. Capital gains on the amount of the appreciation are avoided and the donor receives a tax deduction for the full market value. For stock transfer instructions, contact the OLH College Prep Development Office at (830) 895-0501 Ext. 314 or EMAIL with the stock name, number of shares, and anticipated date of transfer. 

Life Insurance

Webb can be a total or partial beneficiary of an existing whole life insurance policy, or a new policy may be taken out for this purpose. Life insurance can be used to cover charitable gifts made from your estate. Annuities may also be given to OLH.

Charitable Trusts and Life Income Plans

Trust agreements are individually written to accommodate the donor’s wishes. The OLH College Prep Development Office can help you make a decision regarding specialized financial plans. However, you are urged to discuss your plans with your attorney and financial advisors. For more information, contact the Development Office at (830) 895-0501 Ext. 314 or EMAIL.

IRA charitable rollover

If you are a U.S. taxpayer and at least 70 1/2 years of age, you may make gifts to OLH College Prep from your IRA without having to count those funds as part of your adjusted gross income. Consequently, you do not have to pay taxes on the donated amount. Distributions must be made directly from the IRA trustee to OLH College Prep, and the individual maximum is $100,000 per calendar year. For more information, please contact the Development Office at (830) 895-0501 or EMAIL.
