Preserve the Shield with the Henggeler's!

  • As alumni and supporters of Bergan, we all love hearing about memories while at Bergan. Here is what the Henggeler sisters had to say about their time here. “We have very fond memories from Bergan and as a result, have lifelong friendships as well. We've talked about how much we liked the retreats, minicourses, St. Patrick Fun Festival, sporting events, cheerleading/dance, plays, pep rallies, football games at Memorial Stadium, and just being a part of the close-knit families that attended St. Patrick and Bergan. We had wonderful, loving, caring teachers and a good education that prepared us for our next venture.”

    Will you prayerfully consider helping us to continue to Preserve the Shield and help many more families continue the tradition of creating a solid foundation that can be passed from generation to generation. Your generosity helps sustain the shield that was put in place many generations ago by generous supporters who wanted to see the future of Archbishop Bergan Catholic School continue.

Ways to Contribute to the Bergan Fund

  • Matching Gift Program

    Many companies provide matching gift programs that multiply their employees’ charitable donations.
    To obtain a matching gift, contact your employer’s human resources department for a form or information about online procedures. Complete the donor/employee portion of the form and send it to:
    Archbishop Bergan Catholic School, Finance Office
    422 East 4th Street,
    Fremont, NE 68025
    The Finance department will complete their part of the form, and return it to the company to initiate its fulfillment of the match.

  • As a donor, if you have a donor who does not need the RMD (Required Minimum Distribution), please keep in mind that the Charitable IRA Rollover provision is now available for their use for charitable gifting. This law allows an individual who is 70½ years or older to gift up to $100,000 from his or her IRA, directly to a charity without having to recognize the IRA distribution as taxable income. This distribution counts toward the RMD.
    The IRA owner must be age 70½ years or older
    The donor can transfer up to $100,000 directly from the IRA to a qualified charity
    The transfer is not taxable to the IRA owner and can count toward the required minimum distribution
    Because of Internal Revenue Code restrictions, transfers to donor-advised funds do not qualify for the special rollover treatment
    Nebraska Community Foundation has developed several tools to help your clients support their favorite charities through an IRA gift. Here are some Charitable IRA Rollover tools for your consideration. Download a letter of instruction for your IRA administrator, and read more about the benefits of an IRA Charitable Rollover.
