Educational Endowment Fund Council

Contact: Mary Ploen

The St. Paul of the Cross Parish Educational Endowment Fund was developed in 2000 with the goal of keeping Catholic education affordable and accessible for future generations of SPC students. Thanks to the dedication and generosity of our many benefactors, the Endowment Fund currently has over $1.5M, which has allowed the council to allocate $65K back to the school each year to offset increases in expenditures and to keep tuition increase to a minimum. Additionally, the Endowment has funded need-based tuition scholarships.


Funding requests are reviewed by the Endowment Board which makes recommendations to the Pastor for a final decision. To apply for Educational Endowment Funds, please complete the Requisition Form below.
