SKDS raises money to supplement its school budget as well as other committee concerns. We look for a wide variety of opportunities to help finance sponsor these needs. The various committees look for hearty souls who want to work hard and have fun doing a job worth doing well, all for a noble and worthwhile cause - SKDS.

Tuition Assistance Fund
The Tuition Assistance Fund helps families send children to SKDS to receive a Catholic School education. To donate, simply write a check to SKDS, and put "Tuition Assistance Fund" on the memo line.
SKDS Endowment Fund
An Endowment Fund is one in which contributions are invested to provide a steady flow of income. Only such income is used for the purpose of the fund. A contribution to the endowment fund is unique in that it never stops giving.
Endowment Fund contributions help ensure Catholic education in Beaver Dam for many years to come. Each year, St. Katharine Drexel Parish contributions support approximately one-half of the school budget. The remaining half of the school expenses are supported through tuition paid by school families, and various third-source funding initiatives. The cost of maintaining our school and providing a high-quality faith-based education remains challenging and formidable. Thus, we have the desire and the need to secure additional support through the Endowment Fund, which presently supports a significant portion of school budget annually.
