Ways to Support Pius XI Catholic High School

We offer several pathways of giving; each uniquely suited to meet the needs of our donors and our students.

Annual Fund

Our primary ongoing support effort honors the mission of Pius XI by directly impacting our general operating budget.

Popes Circle

The Popes Circle is Pius XI’s group of donor leaders, individuals who annually show their support with a gift of $1,000 or more.

Popes Circle Members enjoy exclusive benefits such as passes to Pius XI sporting events, the Christmas concert, our annual spring musical, donor receptions, and special invitations from our president, Dr. Melinda Skrade.

As a Popes Circle Member you become a partner in helping all our students realize their God-given potential, ultimately benefiting the community-at-large.

To deepen your commitment to giving, consider one of the following levels:

Gold & White Club $1,000-$2,499

Show your true Pius XI High School colors by becoming a member of this spirited group.

Franciscan Club $2,500-$4,999

Help our students become positive difference makers as modeled by the Schools Sisters of

St. Francis’ 75 years of service to Pius XI Catholic High School.

Pallottine Club $5,000-$9,999

Develop future leaders of the church and our community in the tradition of our founding order, the Pallottine Priests.

Fr. De Maria Club $10,000 or more

Perpetuate the vision and leadership of Fr. Joseph De Maria exemplified in his founding of Pius XI Catholic High School in 1929.


Donors may establish or contribute to a fund designated for annual tuition assistance. For more information of details and minimum funding levels for scholarship funds, please contact Angela Reilly, Chief Development Officer.

Futures Fund

Donors make a four-year commitment to provide full or partial tuition assistance.

Hank Raymonds Family Scholarship

Now, even more Milwaukee students can experience all that Pius XI High School has to offer thanks to the Hank Raymonds Family Scholarship.

Hank Raymonds was a beloved basketball coach at Marquette University and a firm believer in Pius XI. Your generous donation to this special fund can give students the opportunity to receive an education unlike any other.

An annual basketball tournament and donor gifts support the continuing growth of this special scholarship fund.

Several Pius XI scholarships will be awarded annually through this special scholarship fund to interested students based on academics, character and community service.

Estate and Planned Gifts

Pius XI accepts all major estate and planned giving vehicles such as life insurance policies, gifts of wills, trusts, and tangible property.

We are happy to meet with you and give you the information you need to discuss a planned gift with your financial advisor.
