Receive a Tax Credit for Giving to St. Jude Catholic School

Put your state tax dollars to work right here at St. Jude!  The State of Illinois is offering a 75% Tax Credit to individuals who donate to the Invest in Kids Scholarship Fund, which provides scholarships to students wishing to attend private schools. Individuals may direct their donation specifically to St. Jude Catholic School or Peoria Notre Dame High School. Many families appreciate this unique opportunity to decide how their tax dollars will be used, and to support organizations which reflect their Catholic beliefs and values. For every $100 you donate, you will receive $75 back as a state tax credit. In other words, the net cost to you is only $25, but the school receives the full $100!  

Please consider donating to this program which provides scholarships to families who might otherwise be unable to attend St. Jude. The process  is not difficult but has several steps.  Please follow the video link or refer to the attachments for step-by-step instructions on the donation process. 

If you have questions or would like help with the donation process please call 309-243-2493 or email Jill Lindsey at We are happy to answer any questions or arrange a private meeting.
