Zach Sobiech Music & Arts Fund

New Opportunity to support the Arts - Adopt-an-Instrument  

Thanks to the generosity and foresight of Bernadette Schaefer, a retired music instructor and current grandmother of St. Croix Catholic School students, our music department has recently been blessed with the opportunity to acquire several high quality gently used orchestra instruments far below their retail value. These instruments will remain the property of the school - to be enjoyed by many current and future student musicians. Please consider helping us take advantage of this amazing opportunity by adopting one of the instruments shown in the photo gallery below. 

You may partially or fully adopt an instrument. Additional Music & Arts Needs are shown in right-hand column. All donations are 100% tax-deductible; SCCS is a 501(c)3 with tax id#41-1731931. Use our secure and convenient online giving portal - or make checks payable to: St. Croix Catholic School with the name of the instrument you'd like to adopt (or simply Music & Arts Fund) on the memo line and send to:  SCCS, 621 Third Street South, Stillwater, MN  55082, Attn: Camille Kiolbasa. Gifts of all sizes are greatly appreciated.

Zach Sobiech Music & Arts Fund

The Zach Sobiech Music Scholarship Fund was established in 2013 by the SCCS Class of 2009 in honor of the late Zach Sobiech, a 2009 graduate and inspiration for millions worldwide. This fund has supported many students who desire extracurricular music programs, but have not been able to afford the full cost. In Fall 2015, an annual fundraising event, Evening for the Arts, was borne. The purpose of this event was to continue to build on Zach's legacy by replenishing the fund so that more students might be able to experience the lifting of the soul through their participation in music - and expanding this mission to encompass all forms of art. The event proved successful, with 150 guests attending the inaugural year and 300 attending in November 2016. In 2017, the school held a Garage Sale in support of the arts, as well as the current instrument and room renovation drive. We anticipate bringing back Evening for the Arts in Fall 2018. The fund, now known as the Zach Sobiech Music & Arts Fundaccepts donations throughout the year with proceeds supporting all performing and fine arts programs offered through St. Croix Catholic School.
