Thank you for your interest in supporting Saint Clement School! We invite you to explore the Giving section of our website and learn how your gift can make a difference. Whether you are alumni, a current school family, parents of alumni, a parishioner interested in supporting catholic education at Saint Clement School, or a Lincoln Park neighbor, your gift is appreciated!
The main Giving Anchors at Saint Clement School are:
- Sunday Giving Commitment - is the financial lifeblood of Saint Clement Parish. Our weekly contributions drive the parish budget and support its many ministries, including Saint Clement School via the parish subsidy. To receive the Engaged Parishioner Tuition Rate, school families are expected to contribute at least $20 per week to The Sunday Giving Commitment.
- The Annual Fund - is the cornerstone of Saint Clement School’s fundraising efforts. The expenses of the school are not covered by tuition alone. Annual Fund contributions go directly to the school’s operating budget and tuition assistance program. We ask that 100% of current school families make a contribution. A gift of any size makes an impact. It says we support and believe in our school, and that we are all in this together.
- Anchor Ball - our annual benefit auction supports both Saint Clement Church and Saint Clement School.
Please make Saint Clement your top charitable giving priority while your child is with us by supporting each of the three main Giving Anchors. The Giving Anchors are how we put our values into action as a faith community and cultivate our own sense of belonging.

There are additional giving opportunities at Saint Clement Parish, which are described under Gifts of Treasure.
Pray. Serve. Give. Learn. Belong
Our Parish Spirituality of Stewardship is alive and well at Saint Clement School. Our children pray together, serve together, give together and learn together. They gather as a community of learners and cultivate a powerful sense of belonging. Every day they share their many gifts and talents freely, by serving the community and one another as they learn and grow.
It is only fitting that we follow their example and share our blessings freely with one another. As a community, we can meet the fundraising and volunteer needs of Saint Clement School and deepen our own sense of belonging.
If you would like to learn more about donations to our Giving Anchors, please contact Heather Kracik - Parish Stewardship and Development Coordinator.
