The St. Therese Catholic School Endowment Fund is a perpetual endowment designed to provide stable, ongoing support to our parish school- forever.

Gifts to the endowment are grown through prudent, faith-aligned investing. The fund is legally protected. Each year, we have the option to reinvest our endowment distribution or receive it as a grant to use for school needs. 

Our goal is to grow the fund to yield an annual distribution that can support tuition assistance needs for our students and families, provide school technology upgrades, and help us attract and retain teachers 

Annual Fund

The Annual Fund represents the money the school raises on an ongoing basis throughout the fiscal year. Donations to the annual fund go directly towards the school’s general operating budget. The funds are used where they are most needed each year: salaries, supplies, utilities, special projects, and other necessary functions to run the school.

Little Flower Legacy Society

Our legacy society is a recognition society consisting of families and individuals who believe in and support the mission of St. Therese. To support the St. Therese Catholic School Endowment Fund perpetually and become a member:

  • Make cumulative gift(s) during your lifetime totaling $5,000 or more
  • Make a planned gift commitment through your will or estate plan to the endowment fund

Father Shea Scholarship Fund

In 1957, our school’s founding pastor, Father Shea, began construction on our school as 80 parish families sought a Catholic education for their children. The Father Shea Scholarship Fund was created to ensure that all students, regardless of financial situation, are able to attend a Catholic school. 

If you would like to continue this legacy of Catholic education for future students, consider donating to the Fr. Shea Scholarship fund. All funds go directly to students who apply for this scholarship on an annual basis.

General School Fund

St. Therese School strives to "go make disciples" (Matt 28:19) of our students as Jesus called us to do. By investing in our school, you ensure our future success. We are committed to an education grounded in a life of faith and to reaching each child’s God- given potential through academic rigor, prayer life, and a loving community.

Your generosity will enable STS to expand programs, enhance our resources and ensure our presence for generations to come.
