Ways to Give

Your gift to Brother Rice High School enhances our efforts to prepare young men academically and personally for the pursuit of excellence in college, their chosen career and life, guided always by their Catholic faith.

Each gift, no matter its size, can have a transformational impact on the life of a young man. Please give generously and pray for the success of our students.

A wonderful way to honor the memory of a loved one or commemorate the special way a family member, teacher, coach or classmate has touched your life is by offering a gift in their name to Brother Rice High School. Memorial gifts and honorariums can be made online or by mailing your check to the school’s Advancement office. Simply note your intentions on our online giving form or in a note accompanying your mailed check.

Double or triple the impact of your gift to Brother Rice by participating in your or your spouse’s employer’s matching gift program. Your employer should have complete instructions on how to gain a matching contribution. Please keep in mind that some employer matching programs apply to both cash gifts and those of donated securities. Refer to your company’s plan for the specifics.

Transferring publicly traded securities to Brother Rice is straightforward. If your investments are held at a brokerage firm, simply contact your investment firm and inform them of the name and quantity of stock you wish to gift and ask them to “deliver free” the shares to our account at Morgan Stanley. The school’s tax identification number is 36-2345181.

Please call or email Dan Hack, Senior Vice President of Morgan Stanley of Chicago for Brother Rice’s account information. Dan can be reached at (312) 917-7538 or dan.hack@morganstanley.com.
