One of the best things about Chaminade is our strong sense of family. We work together, play together, and pray together. We are a family, a community committed to the success and well-being of each and every student.
Tuition does not cover the full cost of a Chaminade education. The Chaminade Fund enables President Robert Webb, Principal Mike Valentine, and Principal Luis Guerra respond to immediate needs, unexpected opportunities, and new ideas. Gifts to The Chaminade Fund are a direct investment in our students, and are our top fundraising priority.

  • Real Estate

    Real Estate, such as home, vacation home, farm, or acreage which has appreciated in value may provide a unique donation opportunity that can help reduce your exposure to capital gains tax and generate a charitable deduction.  You might also want to consider structuring a gift of a home, vacation home, etc., to allow you and/or your spouse continued use (“Retained Life Use”) while also generating a current charitable deduction. Speak to your financial advisor today about these real estate gift options to learn how they might impact your personal tax situation, while benefiting Chaminade’s programs.
  • Amazon Smile

    Shop at and Amazon will donate 0.5% of eligible purchases to Chaminade—no fees, no extra cost.
  • Stocks and Securities

    A gift of appreciation stock generally offers a two-fold tax savings – avoiding capital gains tax on the increase in value of stock and providing an income tax deduction for the full market value of the stock at the time of the gift.  Speak to your tax advisor today about how this might affect your income tax liability.
