Two giving programs provide opportunities to impact the students at St. Norbert School.

The Annual Fund, which directly addresses the school’s immediate needs and priorities to ensure academic excellence for today’s students.
Tuition covers only a portion of the schools' total expenses. The Annual Fund is the primary vehicle for closing the gap between tuition and the actual cost of educating each student. The St. Norbert School Annual Fund takes place in the fall/winter of each school year and we encourage all supporters of our school to participate. Fund-raising is a shared responsibility, one in which every family is expected to participate to the best of its ability. Recognizing that each family's finances are different, gifts of all sizes are welcomed and appreciated. Every contribution, regardless of size, supports our efforts to provide exceptional educational opportunities for our students.

Parish Educational Endowment Fund, was established to answer the call to keep a Catholic education affordable and accessible to future generations of St. Norbert Parish.

The PEEF was founded in 1998 with the goal of ensuring the opportunity for the children of St. Norbert School to have an outstanding Catholic education - not only in the present, but also in the future.

The purpose of the endowment fund is to provide an independent financing solution to the long term needs of the school. Current sources of funding are only adequate to cover the short term needs. A non-voting advisory board compromised of the Pastor, Principal, School Board President and Parishioners guides the fund.

We are proudly one of the largest elementary school endowment funds within the Archdiocese of Chicago. All gifts to the fund are invested by the Finance Office of the Archdiocese. In the past PEEF monies have helped to provide new technology, staff training, enrichment programs, and special services to the students of St. Norbert School.

The future of the PEEF will flourish with continued support from our benefactors. All gifts are tax deductible and can include cash, will bequests, life insurance policies, retirement plans and trusts. A donation can be made in one payment, or can be pledged over five years with regular installments.

Please consider investing in academic excellence at St. Norbert School. Your gift or bequest ensures that our children will continue to receive a faith-based education now, and also in the future.
