Historically, La Reina High School has been blessed with generous donors, both for the original investment in the school and for ongoing operations. As a private Catholic school, La Reina is financially independent from any Catholic diocese or parish and therefore must find the resources necessary (beyond tuition) for the quality Catholic education that is La Reina's tradition. Regular donors include alumnae, current and alumnae parents and guardians, staff, students, foundations, community service organizations, major corporations, local small businesses and many friends.
All donations are tax-deductible, subject to Internal Revenue Service limitations and guidelines. Donors should consult a financial adviser for personalized information on tax benefits. La Reina's non-profit tax identification number is 95-2381453 and our legal title is "La Reina High School."
Legacy & Promise ANNUAL FUND donations underwrite the current greatest needs including scholarships, instructional and activities enrichment, technology upgrades, and capital improvements. In the spirit of the Sisters of Notre Dame, La Reina's tradition is to keep tuition reasonable so that any qualified student can attend. Early records from 1855 show that the sisters provided education and boarding for "30 poor children and 18 paying students." Today, more than 15% of the current students receive financial aid. Offering a dynamic, challenging education from dedicated and experienced teachers requires resources well beyond tuition. The Parent Guild auction funds capital improvements and some of the financial aid awarded to current students. Legacy & Promise donations make the difference in the education of every past, present and future Regent! Click here for the Legacy & Promise Pledge Form.
ENDOWMENT FUND gifts guarantee resources into the future. Individual donors may also choose to direct a current or endowment gift for a specific purpose. For information on establishing an endowment fund or a non-endowed scholarship fund, contact the LRHS Advancement Office (information given at the bottom of this page).

TRIBUTE SCHOLARSHIP GIFTS honor a special person (on a birthday or another occasion) or memorialize a deceased loved one. The Advancement Office will send an attractive acknowledgment card to the honoree or the family of the deceased person with a promise of prayer and an appropriate message.

IN-KIND DONATIONS are gifts of services, equipment or items that provide operational savings and meet specific needs.
MATCHING GIFTS of employees' contributions are provided by a number of corporations. A matching gift may double and sometimes triple the size of an individual donation. La Reina has recently received matching gifts from companies such as Amgen, Bank of America, Bristol Myers, Countrywide, Hewlett-Packard, Qualcomm, SBC, Tenet Healthcare and Verizon.
FUNDRAISING ACTIVITIES are sponsored by the Parent Guild and Booster Club; information about these events and scrip programs is available on this website. For information about scrip/retail rebate programs, visit the fundraising page.
MEMORIAL GIFTS IN LIEU OF FLOWERS can provide a lasting tribute to a deceased loved one. The following information would be appropriate to include in a newspaper obituary notice: In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to La Reina High School, c/o Advancement Office, 106 W. Janss Rd., Thousand Oaks, CA 91360.
