Tuition Assistance Programs


Endowed Scholarships

Endowed scholarships provide for the stability of our school and help many of our families. Compared to gifts for immediate assistance, these contributions are able to provide our students with perpetual financial assistance that family after family can benefit from. Please consider:

  • An investment of $3,500 each year for the next five years; this will endow a scholarship and provide an $875 annual scholarship for a student.
  • A similar gift of $2,500 per year will provide an annual scholarship of $625.
  • A gift of $1,000 for five years will provide for an annual scholarship of $250.

McLaughlin Tuition Assistance Fund

If you would like to have an immediate impact on a family enrolled in our school, you can participate in the McLaughlin Scholars program. This program provides necessary tuition assistance annually to qualified families who are active in a Catholic parish in Cicero and that demonstrate a financial need such as a sudden job loss, death, change in family status, health crisis, etc.

Greatest Needs Fund

All gifts to Saint Frances of Rome are greatly appreciated. In particular, gifts to the Greatest Needs Fund are especially helpful, as they allow St. Frances the flexibility to allocate unrestricted funds within the school, as needed.
