The St. Francis Xavier Catholic School System Foundation is the steward of approximately $6 million of endowed funds that support St. Francis Xavier Catholic School System. The Foundation is responsible for overseeing the investment, administration and distribution of over 90 donor established funds.
The growth of the foundation is an important component of the long term financial health of Xavier Catholic Schools. The funds within the foundation provide a valuable annual revenue stream to the system for areas such as: tuition assistance, operational funding, staff support, fine arts, athletics, and facilities maintenance. To help ensure a Catholic school education for those who otherwise would not be able to attain it, scholarship assistance funds continue to be our greatest need.
Donor gifts of any dollar amount are accepted toward any of the 90 existing funds within the Foundation. Donors may establish a new named fund or a fund in honor or memory of someone they wish to commemorate with a gift of $10,000 or greater. In addition, with a gift of $25,000 or greater a donor may establish a donor directed fund which allows more specific criteria to be applied to the annual distributions of that type of named fund.
Establishing a named fund or simply making a gift to an existing fund can be done in many different manners including but not limited to:
- Gift of Cash
- Gift of Securities
- Gift of Personal Property
- Bequest in your will or trust document
- Gift of Life Insurance
- Gift of Retirement Assets
- Gift of Real Estate
- Charitable Remainder Unitrust
- Charity Gift Annuity
While many named funds are established with a one-time event/gift at the $10,000 or greater level they also can be established via a pledge over a several year time frame that will build the fund to the $10,000 named fund level.
