There are many ways to support the students at Kolbe Academy!

St. Maximillian Kolbe said, “A single act of love makes the soul return to life.” We invite you to consider how a personal gift of your time, prayers, and support can make a difference in the lives of these students seeking to win their battle of addiction.

Kolbe Academy depends on the generosity of its donors to keep the school affordable to so many in need. While sponsored by the Diocese of Allentown, tuition rates are not sufficient to cover all of the costs of this specialized school. We are blessed by the generosity of so many who have given the gift of their time, talent, and financial resources to support this endeavor.

Give to the Annual Fund!

Your tax-deductible gift will go a long way in assisting our families as they sacrifice to make a Catholic  education possible, by helping us keep tuition affordable, keep our facilities up-to-date, keep our technology current, and keep our school the loving, safe, faith-filled environment it is. It’s easy to contribute to our Annual Fund. No gift is too small. May God bless you for your generosity!

Gifts by credit card can be made through the PayPal “Donate” button above. Gifts by check should be made payable to Kolbe Academy and sent to 395 Bridle Path Road, Bethlehem, PA 18017. Please do not send cash through the mail. We will be happy to issue a receipt for your gift.

Consider a Matching Gift

Many companies and corporate foundations match gifts to nonprofit institutions. Matching gifts are a great way to increase support for the school without additional out-of-pocket expense. Matching gifts are a very important source of support. You may be eligible to submit matching gift claims from both your own and your spouse’s employer for the same gift. Contact the human resources office at your employer, your spouse’s employer, or even your former employer, if you are retired, to inquire about their matching gift program.

Participate in a Scholarship Tax Credit Programs (EITC)

Would you prefer to direct your tax dollars to Kolbe Academy to provide student scholarships for families that could not otherwise afford this specialized education for their children? Then the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program is for you! Who can participate? Individuals with a minimum income of $115,000 and a minimum of $3,500 in PA State Tax Liability, Corporations (C and Sub S), Partnerships, LLC’s, and any business entity except sole proprietorship can participate. Instead of paying taxes to the state, you or your business makes a contribution through EITC, and receives a 90% tax credit (for a two year commitment).
