Ways to Give

Annual Appeal

Gifts to the St. Ignatius Catholic School Annual Appeal help bridge the gap between tuition/parish support and the full cost of providing a St. Ignatius education. Each year alumni, grandparents, parents, parishioners, and friends of St. Ignatius Catholic School are asked to support our mission by contributing to the overall operation of our school.

Annual donations allow us to serve our students and address instructional needs, facility expenses, and tuition assistance for qualified students who may not otherwise be able to attend St. Ignatius.

Tuition and parish subsidy cover 79% of our operational costs. We count on everyone’s generosity to make up the 21% still needed. Your annual gifts make a critical difference that enables the rich tradition of Catholic education in Kaukauna to continue!

Tuition Assistance

Many families are willing to make personal sacrifices in order to afford a Catholic classical education at St. Ignatius. However, some families still need additional help. St. Ignatius provides tuition assistance to families with demonstrated financial need.

Donations made to the St. Ignatius Endowment Fund are invested in income-producing assets and help support St. Ignatius in perpetuity. Every dollar earned by an endowment is one less dollar that needs to be raised in an annual fund campaign. Endowment funds provide money for daily operations and extraordinary expenses.

Legacy Society

Become a member of the St. Ignatius Legacy Society with a donation commitment totaling $10,000.  Consider becoming a member today with a multi-year pledge, cash gift, or planned giving commitment. These substantial donations make an investment in the future of Catholic classical school education for St. Ignatius.


St. Ignatius offers various scholarships to graduating St. Ignatius Chesterton Academy students to support their post-secondary education and endeavors.

A current list of these scholarships include:

  • Kevin J. Buskager Memorial
  • Clear Approach Optometry

If you’re interested in setting up and offering a scholarship, we work with you to establish the fund, develop the application process, and promote it to our students.


Memorial / Tribute / Honorary Gifts

Memorial and Honorary Gifts to St. Ignatius are a thoughtful way to pay tribute to a loved one who has passed away, or congratulate/recognize a family member or friend while supporting St. Ignatius.

Matching Gifts

Matching gifts can double or triple the value of contributions to St. Ignatius. We encourage all families and supporters to check if their employer, or another organization, will match their tax-deductible gift.

See how your donations help fulfill our mission!

Fundraising efforts assist in providing a strong financial base to help ensure the future of Catholic education. As in most Catholic schools, tuition and parish support cover only a portion of the overall cost of educating each student in our Catholic classical curriculum.

The donations we receive play an invaluable role in shaping the minds, souls, and life experiences of our students. Thank you!
