    Students may be in the halls of St. Odilia for up to 10 years, but the value of their Catholic education lasts them a lifetime. Ensure that future students can benefit from a Catholic School education by making a gift to the St. Odilia School Endowment Fund. Our endowment invests your gifts into perpetuity, providing long-term financial stability for our school.

    How an endowment fund works

    About Endowments

    An endowment is an account for financial gifts given to an institution, with a special purpose stated by the donor. Our Endowment Funds are designed to preserve the principal (the original gift), while using part of the interest money earned to support the work of the school.

    At St. Odilia, we have invested the money donated to the Endowment Funds, and use a portion of each year's investment earnings for priority school projects. What makes our Endowment unique is that the original gift is never spent! It continues to earn interest forever, or “in perpetuity”. Therefore, your gift today will continue to benefit St. Odilia School year after year.....forever!
     
    Anyone can give any amount to our endowment at any time! View the ways to give.

    St. Odilia School Endowment Fund

    The St. Odilia School Endowment Fund strengthens the quality of programs, staffing, and instructional materials at St. Odilia School. With a healthy endowment, St. Odilia School has the potential to reduce reliance on parish subsidies, tuition, and short-term fundraising for the school’s annual operating budget.  It secures the viability of St. Odilia School as a place that provides a quality, faith-based education.
