Partners in the Spirit


The Partners in the Spirit Annual Fund Campaign seeks to enhance the experience of our students through the generous support of our "extended family", our donors.  We believe that you have the right to know specifically what accomplishments your gift makes possible and that you have a choice in directing how those gifts are to be used.  We hope that you welcome this opportunity to provide additional support.  Our goal is a partnership in which your commitment to the system is made visible and tangible everyday in campus life at St. Edmond.  Your investment in the Saint Edmond family is vital to keeping our programs excellent, successful and attractive.

There are various areas where you can choose to direct your gift:

Unrestricted Gifts -  This fund is the  back bone of our system.  These gifts support the "necessities" that occur annually, items from building and grounds needs, technology advancements, staff instructional needs to the basic utility costs. These unrestricted gifts are essential to our operating fund.  If your interest in Saint Edmond is in operations, an unrestricted gift to Partners in the Spirit would be a great choice for you.

Mary and Maurie Stark Memorial Fund - These gifts are restricted for use by our system to enhance salaries of our teaching staff.

Maurice and Denise Flattery Scholarship - The family of the late Maurice and Denise Flattery established this scholarship in the memory of their parents, long time St. Edmond advocates.  The annual recipient of the scholarship will be an 8th grade student from the system, who will receive a $1,250.00 scholarship for tuition at St. Edmond for their 9th grade year.  Established by a family trust, this well-designed internal scholarship seeks the support of others wishing to reward students by assisting them with high school tuition.  

Ralph Schulte Service Scholarship Fund - Ralph Schulte was a dedicated faculty member of Saint Edmond, who along with his wife Becky had 6 children graduate from Saint Edmond. A major part of Ralph's duties at the school was assigning students service work in the school and in the community. Service to mankind was a passion of Ralph's and after his passing, his family created the Service Scholarship Fund in his honor. The purpose of this fund is that an annual scholarship, initially in the amount of $1,000, will be awarded to a Saint Edmond junior who has displayed outstanding service. The scholarship is to be used for Saint Edmond tuition, thus keeping the funding "in-house", so to speak. In addition, the fund seeks contributions from other supporters who believe in service to mankind, potentially raising either the amount or the number of scholarships awarded annually. 

Msgr. McEvoy & Kollasch Tuition Funds - These gifts can make a difference for a student being able to afford the high-quality education provided by St. Edmond.  These funds will be allotted for tuition assistance.

Donor Restricted Gifts - You may deligate to a specific area that you wish your gift to go such as, library, science program, athletics, music, textbooks, etc.  If you would like, we could assist you as to what the specific needs of each area are.

Technology Fund - In this rapidly changing area, we need to stay current with the times  It is imperative that we seek assistance in replacing and improving our equipment and software annually.  If this is your area of concern, then a gift to technology would assist us with these needs.

Partners in the Spirit Annual Fund - Gifts to the Partners in the Spirit Annual Fund are unrestricted gifts and are the backbone of our system.  These gifts support the necessities that annually occur, items from building and grounds needs, technology advancements, staff instructional needs to the basic utility costs.  These unrestricted gifts are essential to our operating fund.  If you interest in St. Edmond is in operations, an unrestricted gift to "partners in the Spirit would be a great choice for you.
