Ways to Give
Endowment and Scholarship Opportunities
Whether you want to provide tuition assistance to students in need, support our faculty and staff, or just help out with other aspects of the system, there’s an endowment fund for you. An endowment is a permanent fund to support Lourdes Academy, our faculty and staff, and our students. If you’re interested in providing an annual or planned gift, it can be directly donated to one or more of the following school endowment funds:
- Lourdes Academy Endowment Fund – Supporting our school is easy through this fund. Endowment gifts support our curriculum, faith formation, teaching materials, and our facilities upkeep and improvement.
- Clare of Assisi Fund – This fund makes Lourdes Academy possible by providing tuition assistance to students in need.
- Bill Behring Staff Endowment Fund – Named after the late Bill Behring who taught sciences at Lourdes for 35 years, this fund supports staff wages and professional development.
- Judy & Tom Kuble Fund – Is music your passion? Donate to this fund to support music education, scholarships, programs and the school musical.
- Rich Knobloch “Pibb Sure” Fund – The fund’s name honors Mr. K’s longtime tradition of asking his students if they were “Pibb sure” of their answers to math problems, jokingly betting his favorite soft drink, Mr. Pibb. Donate to this academic endowment now to support an incoming junior or senior who has shown dedication in the areas of math or computer science.
