St. Clare School 2017-2018 Annual Appeal

Changing Lives Since 1914

 The St. Clare School Annual Appeal is underway!  This year the school invites you to help us continue building a legacy of support for current and future students by giving to The St. Clare School Endowment Fund.

Dear Friends,

St. Clare Catholic School has been changing the lives of children for over 100 years.  Our Small School with the Big Heart is thrilled to share with you some wonderful news: through the generosity of our community, and the support of members of our1914 Society, the St. Clare School Endowment has grown to just over $1.8M!

Over the last three years, earnings from the Endowment have gone to enhance our academic programs, provide tuition assistance to families in need, and help us meet our budget without significant tuition increases. We simply couldn’t do it without you.

Our goal is to reach $2M… and we need your help!
Help us build on this legacy of love and support for our current students — and future generations to come. Gifts to the Endowment ensure the long-term stability of our school, and help us continue to offer children the gift of a Catholic education.

Become a member of the 1914 Society today!
The 1914 Society was established last year by supporters who joyfully gave to the Endowment through one-time gifts of $191.40 or above, or through pledged amounts of $19.14 monthly.  Will you join them this year?

 

Gifts to the 1914 Society will benefit the Endowment, and be matched up to a total of $5,000 by the following generous families:

 

  • The Hagel Family
  • The Hughes-Sanders Family
  • The Hunt Family
  • The Smith Family
  • An “Anonymous Angel” Family
  • A Second “Anonymous Angel” Family

Please visit www.stclarepdx.org, and click on the Make A Gift Now button. Your gift will help us continue to offer an outstanding Catholic education now, and for years to come.  Thank you.


A brief description of the St. Clare School Endowment Fund:
The St. Clare School Endowment is comprised of three endowed funds which are invested in the Catholic Education Endowment Fund (CEEF) held by the Archdiocese of Portland in Oregon. The Mary Kate Booth Endowment Fund is one of these endowed funds. Each of the funds was established exclusively for the benefit of St. Clare School to help ensure the long-term sustainability of the school, and support the economic viability of Catholic education for all students.

For more information on the Endowment, please visit www.stclarepdx.org, click on Support St. Clare and select Endowment, or contact the school’s development department directly at rcline@stclarepdx.org. Thank you for your support!

What a glorious day it was! Thank you to all who came out to Landon Farms Golf Club on October 6, 2017 to honor the memory of Mary Kate Booth, and support the Mary Kate Booth Endowment Fund that benefits St. Clare School. Langdon Farms Golf Club was especially beautiful that day, all dressed up to sparkle with yellow balloons as far as the eye could see. It was a truly spectacular day, and our community was greatly blessed.
