Why Giving Matters

Gifts to the Incarnate Word Academy help our school continue a 145-year tradition of providing young women in the Houston area the education and values to live for others and Jesus, the Incarnate Word.

At Incarnate Word Academy, tuition only covers 72% of the true cost to educate a student at IWA. We cover the “gap” through fundraising efforts from the Gala, Falcon Raffle and the IWA Annual Fund—from which most funds are raised. With tuition at $15,650 for the 2020-2021 school year versus the actual cost of $21,748, your support helps cover the rest of the cost of fulfilling our mission at IWA.

Many of our students would not be able to attend IWA without the generosity of others. Every gift—no matter the size—makes a direct impact on the lives of our young women.

As grandparents, we simply want the best for our grandchildren–and Incarnate Word Academy is that and more for our granddaughters.  We feel that IWA is an excellent example of what a Catholic education should be today.
