St. Jude Educational Trust Fund
Begun in 1983, the St. Jude Trust Fund is an endowment managed by an independent governing board. Since the Trust’s inception, it has provided almost a million dollars to St. Jude Thaddeus School. Contributions add to the principal of the fund, which remain as a perpetual endowment. The earnings are distributed to the school and are currently providing roughly $27,000.00 per year. There are many ways to contribute: cash, in the form of gifts or memorials, mineral rights, property, grain, stocks and bonds, etc.
Memorials and Educational Assistance Fund
Memorial funds may be designated to St. Jude Thaddeus School. These memorials generally go into our educational assistance fund. Memorials made in the memory of loved ones reaching $500.00, will be recognized on the memory wall, located in the entrance of the school. Other non-memorial donations may also be made to the school to provide educational assistance.
