The Friar Club
The Friar Club recognizes those who have reached certain cumulative levels of giving. Once inducted, you are a Friar Club member for life!
These donors have named Padua Franciscan High School as the beneficiary of a planned gift. Such gifts might include a bequest, appreciated securities, gifts of retirement accounts, gifts of life insurance and/or charitable income gifts, such as charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder unitrusts, charitable remainder annuity trusts.
Once you complete your estate plans, please fill out our member profile form to let us know. We would like to thank you for your generosity by including you in The Friar Club.
Note that your pledge, trust, bequest, or gift may be funded by cash, stock, or real property, subject to approval.
Benefits of Membership
Your membership involves no dues, obligations, or solicitations, but it does allow us to thank you and recognize you for the plans you have made, and it may inspire generosity in others.
Benefits for membership in the Friar Club include membership pin, invitation to annual Friar Club dinner and other Friar Club receptions, free admission to all Padua-hosted athletic and fine arts performances, and reduced fees for annual James W. Day Golf Tournament and Bruin Benefit events. The names of members are also inscribed on a plaque located in Padua's main lobby.
