Ways to Give

San Gabriel Mission High School’s continued excellence depends on regular support from generous members of the community-current and past parents as well as alumni and friends of the school. Each gift, no matter the amount, makes a vital impact on Mission. There are several ways to make a donation to the school.

San Gabriel Mission High School Annual Appeal

For over sixty five years our high school has provided a quality education program, cultivating academic excellence and instilling Christian values. The San Gabriel Mission High School Scholarship Endowment helps to provide financial aid to students who have demonstrated financial need and who would otherwise be unable to attend our school.

Endowed Gifts

All private schools strive to build strong endowment funds to ensure their future financial health.

San Gabriel Mission High School’s endowment funds provide lasting support for the general operating budget, financial aid, professional development, and facilities maintenance. All endowment contributions remain intact in perpetuity.

Parent Pledge

Tuition and fees only cover a portion of the cost of educating your daughter. It actually costs approximately 10,000 a year to educate a Mission student. Your participation in the Parent Pledge Program helps to make up the difference.

The suggested pledge amount is $250 (tax deductable) per year, which will add up to $1,000 over the four years your daughter attends San Gabriel Mission High School.

Reunion Gifts

Reunions at SGMHS are marvelous ways to celebrate milestones since graduation. Classes plan events to reconnect with each other and SGMHS. A reunion gift expresses your appreciation to San Gabriel Mission High School for an excellent education and the benefits that it has afforded you. Please consider making a special reunion gift during your reunion year to not only commemorate the anniversary of your graduating class but to honor the timeless traditions. For more information, please contact the Alumni and Development Office at 626-282-3181 ext. 116.

Senior Class Gift

The Senior Class gift is a student-led campaign to raise money for San Gabriel Mission High School. This tradition at SGMHS invites seniors to give back to the school in honor of their time spent here. The senior class gift is a commitment that begins a lifetime of involvement with Mission. It is the first step in the transition of becoming San Gabriel Mission High School alumni.
