Your support of Portsmouth Catholic Regional School is an outstanding example to our students. At PCRS, we are working to develop servant leaders that understand the importance of giving back to their community and setting an example. That is demonstrated by your investment in Catholic Christian education at Portsmouth Catholic.
Please prayerfully consider how you would like to donate your time, talent or treasure to Portsmouth Catholic Regional School. We rely on the long tradition of generous giving and support from our Portsmouth Catholic parents, alumni, grandparents, parishioners, community leaders and businesses, as well as our dedicated faculty and staff to supplement tuition. Whatever you can do for us at this time will help us continue to prepare students to strive for excellence spiritually, academically, physically and socially, and to be lifelong learners with strong Catholic values.
We strive to make a Catholic Christian Education accessible to any family who desires it for their Children. For the communities and churches of Chesapeake, Portsmouth, and Suffolk we are a nearby solution.
Sustainable gifts are a great way to show your commitment to make a Catholic Christian education accessible to anyone seeking such a privilege for their children. As little as $85/month, you will invest more than $1000 towards a child’s potential. Sustainable gifts or pledges allow PCRS to plan for the future, enhance the curriculum, develop servant leaders and impact our community. If you make a pledge of greater than $500/year, you will be eligible for the EIS tax credit from the Commonwealth
We have attempted to make supporting PCRS as convenient as possible. You can make your donation online, or you may send a check to the school, at:
2301 Oregon Ave, Portsmouth, VA 23701
If you wish to make a donation in honor or memory of someone (like a favorite student or teacher), please indicate so online or on your check. Your gift helps us to fulfill the needs of our students and families that are a part of the PCRS community.
