Planned Giving


John W. Hallahan Catholic Girls' High School relies on the generosity of friends from throughout the community who understand the vital role Hallahan, the first all-girls’ diocesan high school in the country, plays in the region. We are continually grateful to the individuals and families who have stabled Planned Gifts over the years, leaving a legacy that has benefited the school both during and after their lifetime. Their philanthropy and good will symbolizes a deep and lasting commitment to the school’s continued growth and stability.

The beauty of a legacy gift is that it benefits the school as well as the donors.

Contributions can come in all shapes and sizes. Donors can show their financial support in ways they may not have thought possible and sometimes significantly enhance their own financial situation through a variety of tax incentives. Supporters have established planned gifts through bequests in their wills, beneficiary designations for IRAs, retirement plans, life insurance policies, estate contributions, contributions to the JWHHS scholarship fund and more. These gifts have contributed to the care of our buildings, academic programs and expansion of our facilities.
