The St. Clare School Endowment is comprised of three endowed funds which are invested in the Catholic Education Endowment Fund (CEEF) held by the Archdiocese of Portland in Oregon. The Mary Kate Booth Endowment Fund is one of these endowed funds. Each of the funds was established exclusively for the benefit of St. Clare School to help ensure the long-term sustainability of the school and to support the economic viability of Catholic education for all students.

Endowment Update | June 2018

Thanks to your overwhelming generosity, this year’s annual appeal exceeded all previous records. We are thrilled to share that through this year’s efforts via the appeal, our auction, and the support of our 1914 Society members, the St. Clare School Endowment has grown to over $2M!

Over the past three years, earnings from the Endowment have been used to enhance our academic programs, provide tuition assistance for families with need, and to help us meet our budget without significant tuition increases. We simply couldn’t do it without you. Gifts to the Endowment ensure the long-term stability of our school and help us continue to offer children the gift of a Catholic education.

St. Clare School extends a very special thanks to Jay, Ellie, Rose, and James Booth, and their extended family and friends, for their unsurpassed contributions to the Endowment via the annual Yellowball Golf Tournament. (Proceeds of Yellowball go toward the Mary Kate Booth Endowment Fund, in honor of the memory of Mary Kate Booth.)

OCF Joseph E. Weston Public Foundation

Each year for the last several years, the Joseph E. Weston Public Foundation of the Oregon Community Foundation has generously matched donations to the St. Clare School Endowment, providing great incentive for others to give. We are very grateful to Mr. Weston for his yearly support of the Endowment. When you give to the Endowment and secure a matching gift from your participating employer, the Joseph E. Weston Public Foundation of the Oregon Community Foundation will match both your donation and your employers’ donation. The match amount for 2018-2019 gifts will be $30,000. Thank you Mr. Weston!

The school invites individual gifts, gifts of stock, corporate matching gifts, short- and long-term pledges, and planned gifts to benefit the Endowment Fund. Click here to make an individual gift, or send a check to:
