Ways to Give

Duchesne Academy welcomes and appreciates your support. We recognize that decisions made about giving to a charitable organization are very personal, deliberate, and oftentimes involve more than one individual. There are many ways to give to Duchesne; they are detailed below so that you can determine the simplest and most beneficial way for you.

How To Give

Duchesne Fund

The Duchesne Fund is an annual giving program that supports the school’s operational costs. Between 65-70% of the school's total operating revenue is from tuition; the remaining amount is a result of fundraising efforts. Your gift to the Duchesne Fund helps make up the difference between the cost of tuition and the true cost to educate each student.

Give to the Duchesne Fund today!


An endowment is a pot of donated money intended to provide a reliable stream of income for educational purposes over the long term. Endowment funds are invested into perpetuity and a portion of their value is harvested each year. While all gifts to Duchesne support the high quality of education, endowments are particularly meaningful as they offer a dependable and perpetual source of funding.

Memorial League/Living Tribute

Gifts may be made to Duchesne in Memorium or in honor of a loved one. Memorial gifts are often a source of comfort during an otherwise difficult time as they help carry on the legacy of a loved one who has passed away. You may also make a donation in honor of a loved one's birthday, anniversary, or other momentous occasions. Please indicate the name of the person you wish to memorialize or honor.

Sophie Society

The Sophie Society is an endowed fund that supports the stability and growth of faculty salaries so we might continue to attract and retain the most qualified, dedicated and inspired educators for future generations of Duchesne students. As with any endowment, the corpus is invested in a special account and remains there into perpetuity. The funds earned annually through the market return will be used to support faculty salaries and ensure that Duchesne continues to offer competitive salaries and maintain an exceptional teaching faculty.
