Special Giving Opportunities

Donors often wish to remember or honor an individual or group with a gift. Below you will find information about these scholarships and your chance to make your gift online. You may also send a check payable to Northwest Catholic High School with a note designating the desired scholarship to the Advancement Office, 29 Wampanoag Drive, West Hartford, CT 06117.  Thank you for your support.

Endowed and Annual Named Scholarships

For over two decades, alumni, parents, and friends of Northwest Catholic have chosen to honor an individual or a family while helping students in financial need by funding an endowed scholarship. A portion of the annual earnings of each endowed fund, which will provide the named scholarship in perpetuity, are used each year to ensure that deserving students can take advantage of the educational opportunities that Northwest Catholic has to offer. Endowed scholarships may be initiated with a minimum gift of $25,000 and a commitment to grow the fund to $50,000. Future gifts to an endowed fund (from the initial donor or from others) will increase the annual value of the endowed scholarship.

Annual scholarships, which are also available to honor an individual or family, are created with an annual gift of $2,500 or more, provided it is the donor's intent to make a multi-year commitment to continue the support, generally for two to four or more years.
