Vision 2020: Endowment Fund

Vision 2020:  You're Invited

By the year 2020, we aim to grow the St. Croix Catholic School Endowment Fund from its current $1.2 million balance to $2.2 million principal so that distributions back to the school reach $80,000/year (double what we're currently receiving).
Growing the Endowment Fund ensures that the quality programs you support today
will remain strong for years to come.

To achieve Vision 2020, we are asking our donors to prayerfully consider making a generous gift that can be split between a present need of your choice (see current needs below) and the SCCS Endowment Fund. 

Example:  Make a $2,000 gift; designate $1,000 to our STEM/Technology Fund and $1,000 to our Endowment Fund.* 

Current Needs
STEM and Technology Fund
Zach Sobiech Music & Arts Fund
Principal's Discretionary Fund
Light Their Way Tuition Assistance Fund


Future Needs
Vision 2020 campaign aims to add $500,000 of new gifts in each of the next two years and reinvest all but the annual 4% distributions. By 2020, we should realize a $80,000 distribution (double what we're currently receiving), and in just five years, the school is projected to receive over $400,000 in distributions. 



This growing Endowment Fund is key to meeting future needs and keeping our programs strong in years to come. 

 All contributions are 100% tax deductible; St. Croix Catholic is a 501(c)3 with Tax ID#41-1731931.

*Gifts of $1,000 or more made to the Endowment Fund are recognized with personalized Legacy Pavers.
