Charism Society

Support Us

The Charism Society, the annual giving society of St. Elizabeth School, was formed as a way to encourage, recognize, and thank our top-level donors. Charism in simplest terms means “gift.” It is through the generosity and gifts of our donors that we are able to make a difference in the lives of so many of our students. Making an annual or ongoing donation allows you to play an important role in the financial health of SES, and makes a powerful statement about how much you value the mission of St. Elizabeth School. Click to download Charism brochure
