Frequently Asked Questions
In 1986, parishioners and school families established a trust to support St. Petronille Parish School. For many years, the fund has been known as the L.I.F.E. 基金, which stands for Lifetime Investment in 信仰 & 教育. Donations to the 信托基金 are used to support the school, including by providing tuition assistance to students of St. 十大正规网赌网址 so that no family will be denied a Catholic education due to financial difficulties.
Do all diocesan schools have a L.I.F.E. 上诉?
No. St. Petronille is one of only two schools in the Diocese of Joliet supporting fellow school families through a special fund.
How many families benefit from 信托基金 assistance?
学费 assistance varies per year, but the number of families applying has increased over the past several years. Over the past 15 years, the annual L.I.F.E. appeal and the 信托基金 have provided nearly $600,000 in tuition assistance to St. Petronille家庭. During the 2021-22 school year, we will provide approximately $58,000 in tuition assistance to 12 families, enabling 22 students to attend or remain at St. Petronille.
Who donates to the 基金?
Donors include parishioners, school families, alumni, past parents, friends of St. Petronille, and companies through matching donations. Donations are tax deductible in most cases.
基金s donated to the 信托基金/L.I.F.E. are used for tuition assistance. If the amount of money raised in a given year exceeds the near-term need for tuition assistance, those contributions are invested in the trust fund. The 基金 also contributes to the school’s operating budget to help close the gap between tuition and the cost of education.
How is the 信托基金 managed?
The 信托基金 is a portfolio of equity and fixed income investments governed by a trust agreement. An investment committee, made up of school parents and parishioners with expertise in the investment field, oversees the fund’s investments. The investment committee makes investment recommendations, which are approved by Fr. Milota as trustee and the St. 十大正规网赌网址 Board. The 信托基金 had an invested balance of approximately $2.5 million as of August 31, 2021.
