The St. Clare School 2021 Annual Fund is underway! Please join us in contributing to “the Small School with the BIG Heart”.


For over one hundred years, St. Clare School has provided students with an incredible, high quality Catholic education. We are so proud and grateful that this academic year has been no exception. We are persevering through the pandemic, keeping our doors open and our students thriving. However, none of this is possible without the hard work of our administration, staff and faculty, and the generosity of our community.

The St. Clare Annual Fund is an important part of our school’s success. Last year, with contributions in part from our Annual Fund, and supporters like you, we were able to improve our school facilities and technology to safely welcome students back to campus. This included increased technology throughout the building, allowing for one-to-one device access for all our students as well as increased curriculum resources and Swivl Robotic Cameras in every classroom as well as investment in infrastructure upgrades that included HVAC and air flow improvements, touchless faucets, filtered touchless driving fountains, sanitizing stations, and increased building security. In addition, we were able to increase our custodial staff, and specialist opportunities for students, including drama, and technology. Gifts to our St. Clare Endowment and Tuition Assistance fund also helped ensure the long-term stability of our school and continued assistance for families in need.

Will you join us again?
Please prayerfully consider a donation to St. Clare School’s 2021-2022 Annual Fund today. Gifts to the Annual Fund ensure a strong future for St. Clare School and it’s students, providing the school with the financial security and resources to support outstanding education, and future sustainability of our mission.

How can you double your donation?
Your gift in support of the endowment or tuition assistance may also be doubled thanks to the continued generosity of the OCF Joseph E. Weston Public Foundation. For the last several years Portland philanthropist Joe Weston has funded a challenge match to encourage giving to both the St. Clare School Endowment Fund and our Tuition Assistance Fund. Last year, your giving, in support of these key funds, allowed St. Clare to receive the maximum amounts matched by the Weston Foundation — $45,000 for our endowment and $35,000 for tuition assistance. This year, the match amounts remain the same and we are striving to again reach the full match.

Your gift can make a lasting impact on our school and help us continue to change the lives of our children for years and years to come.
