Volunteer Tuition Assistance Options
Below are various organizations that allow you to volunteer your time to work at public events in exchange for a donation from that organization made to a non-profit of your choosing (e.g., Transfiguration.) Therefore, we would like to share thes opportunities below. These opportunities are outside of Transfiguration Catholic School and operate completely independently of each other and of our school.
- It's important that you understand these are suggestions but that Transfiguration Catholic School is NOT associated with any of the organizations. As such you would need to contact them personally for more information and how to apply.
- If you were to pursue this volunteer opportunity and you chose Transfiguration as your non-profit, all funds received from your volunteer work would be applied 100% towards your family’s tuition.
- Any volunteer commitments fulfilled through these organizations would not, however, fulfill your volunteering requirement at Transfiguration.
- We recommend you research each organization before committing as they each reimburse at different rates, operate slightly differently from each other, and each represents and supports different communities.
