The St. Francis Xavier Catholic School System Foundation is the steward of approximately $9 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 100 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. With the introduction and increase of funding from the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program, and with additional scholarship funds made available through donors and outside foundations, the Xavier Foundation feels that funding for scholarships and tuition assistance is strong and that the opportunity to receive a Xavier education is more accessible than ever.
The Foundation feels that now is the time to focus and concentrate on securing long-term resources to support the following areas:
Support for Faculty and Staff- Securing the resources necessary to ensure that Xavier is attracting and maintaining quality teachers and staff is our system’s number one priority. This entails offering competitive salary and benefit packages and giving staff the necessary resources of time, classroom support, and other assistance so that they may focus on teaching and making sure that each child is valued.
Academics and Technology- The challenge Xavier faces in the future is to create relevant learning experiences that mirror students’ daily lives and the reality of their future. Learning can no longer be confined to the years we spend in school or the hours we spend in the classroom: it must be lifelong and available on demand.
Capital Improvements- Enhancing our facilities will increase our potential. When you take the passion and knowledge of the Xavier Staff, relevant learning experiences, and empower it with the most up-to-date facilities, it leads to advancement that our community has not seen.
