Ways to invest in the future of Moreau Catholic High School Cash Gifts

Cash donations, whether by check, credit card, or electronic transfer, are the easiest way for most donors to give to Moreau Catholic High School.


A pledge is a form of gift that enables the donor to make a contribution on a set schedule over an agreed upon length of time, usually several months to a few years. This often allows a donor to commit to an amount larger than they might otherwise be able to make within a one year time frame. The Office of Advancement has the ability to accommodate pledge payment schedules suiting most circumstances.

Stocks & Bonds

Stocks and bonds are a tax-wise way to make a contribution. Donors are often able to make a larger donation than with cash and these donations usually provide savings on capital gains taxes. Depending upon your individual tax situation, you may receive an income tax deduction for full fair market value. Be sure to discuss this type of donation with your financial advisor or broker.

Real Estate

Given the dynamic real estate market over the past several years, a donation of real estate may be beneficial to both the donor and to Moreau Catholic. In order to continue our mission, Moreau Catholic will consider on a case-by-case basis accepting the gift of a home, vacation property, condominium, apartment complex, undeveloped land, or other real estate.

Paid Up Life Insurance

Donors who own paid up life insurance policies that are no longer needed for its original purpose may donate the policy to Moreau Catholic by transferring ownership to the school. Generally, the donor will be entitled to an income tax deduction for the cash surrender value. Discuss this option with your insurance agent.

Wills, Trusts, and Planned Giving

Please include Moreau Catholic High School in your estate plans. Inclusion in your will can take several forms: • Designate a specific amount to be directed to the school. • Designate a percentage of your estate to be directed to the school. •

Designate the “remainder” portion of your estate that is left over when all other obligations and provisions have been addressed.

For document preparation, please use the legal title of the school: Moreau Catholic High School. Trained financial advisors can provide you with additional estate planning options that are appropriate for your individual situation. Be sure to contact your attorney or financial advisor to discuss any implications a charitable contribution may have on your taxes and your estate. Contact our Advancement Team: 510.881.4322

A Message from our President Dear Mariners, From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for donating your time, talents, and treasure to Moreau Catholic over the last year. It makes a huge impact on our students, our programs, and our efforts to continue to attract investors and supporters to Moreau Catholic. On behalf of the students, teachers, administrators, and staff, I truly appreciate all you do for our school! In this year’s Annual Report, we highlight three investors who exemplify the blessings of time, talent, and treasure. The wonderful and devoted Mariner Mom, Mary Kate Lathrop, who dedicates so much of her time to Moreau Catholic in support of her sons and all our students, deserves our deepest gratitude, love, and admiration. The super energetic, creative, and social-justice advocate Kaili Spooner ’21 has started her own small business and freely shares her talents with our school community. And the amazingly generous and fearless Tony Avila ’83 sets a goal and works tirelessly to achieve it—whether it be an Ironman competition or sharing his treasure to support our students through the Janet Pessagno & Lopez Family Scholarship. All three of these Mariners are role-models for us all, and angels to our school community. Thank you Mary Kate, Kaili, and Tony! Finally, I would like to acknowledge and thank the Brothers of Holy Cross, Moreau Province, for their continued sponsorship and support of Moreau Catholic. 2020 marks the 200th anniversary of the founding of the Brothers of St. Joseph in Ruille, France—the group that later became the Holy Cross Brothers we know and love. From the Brothers who have served on staff over the years, to the Brothers who continue to serve as members of the Moreau Catholic High School Corporation, we are deeply thankful and appreciative of all that they do for us. Through the intercession of Saint Brother Andre Bessette and Blessed Father Basil Moreau, we continue to pray for the Brothers and their ministry. With thanks to all,

Terry Lee President

KIND, AMBITIOUS, INTELLIGENT, LIKABLE, INTERESTING: KAILI There are no two ways about it: Kaili Spooner ’21 is exceptional. Just this year she committed to play collegiate volleyball at Sonoma State University, she spoke out against police brutality and in support of Black lives in front of Hayward City hall, was appointed as Chair of the Board for the Hayward Youth Commission, became Moreau Catholic’s Black Student Union (BSU) Vice President, joined Social Justice Leadership and Link Crew, and, to top it off, she started her own business. “My parents are really big on entrepreneurship,” she shares. Both of Kaili’s parents have their own businesses—her father as a motivational speaker for the formerly incarcerated and her mother as 4 | Moreau Catholic

a life coach for women who have had traumatic experiences. Inspired by them, Kaili thought long and hard, praying for an idea for her own first business venture. In late July, Kaili decided she would learn to make and sell resin keychains. She did her due diligence— researching supplies, watching videos about how to make them, pricing out different styles—then she presented her business plan to her parents. Impressed by her plan and believing in their daughter, they became her first investors, giving her money to buy the supplies needed to start her business. Kaili set up an Instagram account (@keychainsbykaili) to begin promoting and

As a Black girl, society sees us as ’ghetto’ and ’uneducated,’ and I want to be perceived differently.”

selling her wares. It’s a side project that she says, “Kept me busy during quarantine.” This highly motivated middle child in a family of five siblings “has been a shining light ever since she stepped onto the campus,” praises Toni West, Associate Dean of Students and moderator of BSU. West goes on to say, “[Kaili] fully commits herself to academics, athletics, and clubs. She has taken full advantage of the offerings at Moreau. Kaili demonstrates the values of being a Mariner, she shows her classmates how to use her purpose and passion to positively affect those around her.” Kaili states, “As a Black girl, society sees us as ‘ghetto’ and ‘uneducated,’ and I want to be perceived differently. So I have high standards and morals for myself. As I’ve grown at the school, I’ve tried to get more involved in many ways. Now I’m at the point that if I want to make change...then I need to be involved.” Despite what the world tells her, Kaili wants to set a good example for her younger siblings and cousins, the way one of her own cousins inspired her. She strives to break stereotypes, and to be seen as the rule rather than the exception. Kaili looks forward to her upcoming club and MCHS volleyball seasons, which she will play simultaneously for the first time, and to returning to campus and ultimately graduating at the Paramount Theatre. She plans to pursue a career as an actor in film and television. Her volleyball coach of three years and Social Justice Coordinator, Jerico Abanico, says simply, “She’s going to change the world.” And we can’t wait to see her do it.

An ironman triathlon consists of a 2.4 mile swim, followed by a 112 mile bicycle ride, and finished off with a full 26.2 mile marathon run. It is not an event for the faint of heart. Competing in one takes mental and physical stamina, steady pacing, and an unwavering commitment to the finish line 140 miles ahead. It takes over half a day to finish; an event better suited for the turtle than the hare.

and Managing Principal of Encore Capital Management, a real estate investment and development firm, Avila knows a thing or two about making a good investment, which is why Avila and his family know the importance of investing in Moreau Catholic students.

Since 2014, Tony Avila ’83 has participated in several marathons and triathlons. He ran the Boston marathon in 2016, participated in the Escape from Alcatraz triathlon in 2015, and did not one, but two, grueling Ironman World Championship triathlons in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii in 2018 and 2019. He now focuses on half-Ironman distance triathlons, which is still an impressive 70 mile trek. Long before becoming an Ironman athlete, Avila’s mother instilled in him and her other children a strong sense of giving back to the community. During his time at Moreau Catholic, Avila became heavily involved in community service. Thanks to his mother’s influence and the encouragement of Dr. Joe Connell, Moreau’s principal at the time, he established the first Interact Club at Moreau. Interact is a self run, Rotary International sponsored service club for young people. As president of the MCHS Interact club, Avila visited schools around the Bay Area and was able to assist in the establishment of 13 other Interact clubs around the area. After his mother passed in 2003, Tony and his family established the Janet Pessagno Scholarship (now called the Janet Pessagno & Lopez Family Scholarship) in her honor. This $2,000 scholarship is awarded to two rising sophomores who exhibit the highest standards of caring and citizenship through community service and academic excellence. Each year, Avila designates one big race to raise money to grow the corpus of the fund with an aim of adding approximately $50,000 to it yearly. Earlier this year, amidst the upheaval of COVID-19, Avila and his siblings, Tim ’87 and Gina ’91, along with family members Alison Lopez ’94 and Karina Anthony ’23, pledged an investment of $40,000 in direct tuition assistance to families of Mariners most affected by the pandemic. They challenged our community to match the gift with their own investments, and the Mariner family did not disappoint!


Investing in student success is much like competing in an Ironman. It is a long, steady process with a focus on reaching a goal much farther ahead. And as co-founder

Janet Pessagno with granddaughter, Katrina

Avila shares that Moreau Catholic was “a great foundation” for him and his siblings and “a beacon for [the] community.” To this family, investing in Moreau Catholic students is a way to give back to the community. He acknowledges that it is often hard to dedicate time to service, so his family’s focus has been on fundraising as their way of “paying it forward and being there to support future generations.” So what is the return on an investment in Moreau Catholic students? For Avila, it’s the formation of well rounded people who are considerate and understanding. It means developing citizens who know how to learn by overcoming challenges and interacting well with people, especially those with whom they might not see eye to eye. But most importantly, Mariners know how to give back to their community and continue to share the love. Avila would like to congratulate President Terry Lee on an incredible career and wish him the best of luck in his new role as Director of School Sponsorship for the Moreau Province. Of Dr. Liz Guneratne he says, “Never have I been more impressed with a principal. Moreau is truly blessed to have someone of her caliber and capabilities.” He would also like to congratulate Mr. Phil Wilder, who just retired, on “an illustrious career...Wilder is someone with integrity, balance, poise, humor…exactly what one would aspire to have within an educator.” Finally, to the current Moreau Catholic faculty and staff, Avila encourages them to “continue doing the incredible job that you’re doing today.” We thank Avila and his whole family for their steady, unwavering support of Moreau Catholic and its students!

John A. Raimondi Volunteer Award Winner

“TO THE WORLD YOU ARE A MOTHER, BUT TO YOUR FAMILY YOU ARE THE WORLD” This year’s recipient of the John A. Raimondi Volunteer Award is the embodiment of our pillar of Being Family. As team mom for both her boys’ football teams, a regular volunteer with the band program, and a chaperone for Link Crew camp, Mary Kate Lathrop has gotten to know dozens of Mariners who now consider her a second mom. While her sons were students, her car became the hang out spot in the parking lot for students to gather before school. This was the place where her sons’ friends could go because there “they knew they had a parent they could count on.” Since her eldest son, Connor ’16, started at Moreau Catholic, she has devoted time to organizing banquets, making food, baking cookies, working at band concerts, sending emails for coaches, and chaperoning class field trips, whether her children were in the class or not. Though her youngest son, Gavin ’18, is now a student at Cal State Fullerton, she continues to give her time freely to Moreau Catholic. Volunteering has been a way for Lathrop to give back to the school that she says “was good to my boys.” But it was also a way for her to heal and connect with others during a difficult time. After her divorce and moving back to California, Lathrop began volunteering at the boys’ elementary school, All Saints, where she is still heavily involved. Thanks to her grandfather’s influence, Lathrop learned that,

“If you help people out, good things do come out of that.” And good things have come. She’s made friends with other parents, gotten to see her boys grow into fine young men, witnessed the joy of other students’ successes, and she’s been there to comfort them through their losses. The most well intentioned parents find it difficult (with good reason) to devote time to volunteer at their child’s school. So why would Lathrop, a single parent who works full time, spend so much of her precious little free time at Moreau Catholic events? She simply “didn’t want to miss any of the important stuff.” To encourage other parents to volunteer, Lathrop says, “Be involved with the kids. You’ll get to see what they enjoy and what they’re passionate about. Then you get to enjoy what they enjoy!” Lathrop believes that, “The more time you spend with the kids, the more well rounded they are.” “Moreau is producing great leaders,” she shares. For that she thanks the faculty and staff, especially the coaching staff, the band program, and student activities director, Nichole McGowan. “Thank you for everything that you did for my kids. It’s a great family that we gained.” Congratulations and thank you for all you do, Mary Kate! Annual Report 2019-2020 | 27
