From the front office to the athletic office, mathematics to maintenance, teachers to students, contributions to the Popes Fund during GIVEXI will uplift every student, every program, and every department.  Whether you’re committed to supporting families through financial aid, have a heart for art, or are passionate about upgrading uniforms or univents, the Popes Fund helps meet the most urgent needs of our community.  Let’s do this together Popes! 

If you are in a position to do so, we ask you to consider joining our efforts and making a gift in support of our students and our mission to help every student reach their unique and highest potential.  Your support INCREASES opportunity, and AMPLIFIES impact. Let's go Popes!

The POPES Fund supports … Supplies (and other Essentials)

Software licenses, copy paper, utilities, and daily bus transportation for our students to make their way to 76th and Stevenson from the north and south sides of town. Exciting and flashy? Not really. Essential? Definitely. These are just a few of the must-haves that make up our annual budget. Your gift literally helps keep the lights on and more.

Did you know, Popes? Software licenses alone cost upwards of $80,000 per year and annual transportation costs average $60,000.

The POPES Fund supports … Experiences

Student-led clubs. Retreats. Athletics. Performing Arts. From the field to the stage and everything in between, it’s these extracurricular opportunities that enrich our students' experiences here at Pius XI, helping develop the confidence, character, and sense of commitment that is needed to excel beyond the four years they spend here. Your gift helps make these memorable and influential experiences possible.

The POPES Fund supports … Programs

“Be More YOU” is not just an expression. It is the essence of the Pius XI experience. Students are encouraged to try different activities and courses to discover who they truly are. From award-winning Visual and Performing Arts programming to innovative STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) classes, your gift ensures that current and future Popes have access to a range of academic options that introduce them to new concepts and ignite interests they never knew existed. 

Did you Know, Popes? In 2022, Pius XI boasted 49 Regional and 2 National Scholastic Art Award Winners. Now, that really paints a picture of the caliber of our Visual Arts Program. Pius XI is also a certified school of excellence through Project Lead the Way, a national program that empowers students to develop and apply in-demand skills by exploring real-world, project-based challenges in STEM courses.

The POPES Fund supports … People

It’s the people that make Pius XI truly special. The relationships and bonds built between students and staff live on well past the four years they spend together here on these six floors. Your gift to the POPES Fund helps ensure we can attract and retain the best of the best—faculty, staff, and coaches who take a vested interest in our students and strive to make a difference in each of their lives. 

Did you Know, Popes? In the past 10 years, 14 Pius XI faculty have received the Herb Kohl Fellowship Teacher Award, which recognizes teaching excellence and innovation in Wisconsin.
