Sister Mary Paul Hickey Endowment Society

In September 1963, Sister Mary Paul Hickey, The Campus School’s founder and a member of the Sisters of Mercy, opened The Campus School at Carlow University (formerly known as the Mount Mercy College Campus School) for kindergarten through sixth grade, as a demonstration school for Carlow University’s (formerly known as Mount Mercy College) School of Education.

In a statement given during the 50th anniversary celebration of The Campus School, sister Mary Paul stated “The goal was to provide opportunities for college students preparing for elementary school teaching to observe and participate in excellent teaching and enthusiastic learning, The Campus School has grown beyond anything I could have imagined.”

For 55 years The Campus School has thrived with a unique partnering of spiritual values and academic excellence fosters in each child a love of life and learning and a sense of responsibility and purpose. This is all due to the dedication, commitment and love of Sister Mary Paul.

In honor of Sister Mary Paul and her years of dedication to The Campus School, we are honor to adopt the new name our Endowment level giving as the Sister Mary Paul Hickey Endowment Society.

Frequenlty Asked Questions

Frequenlty Asked Questions

What is an Endowment Gift?

Endowments are generally, unrestricted gifts that are added to the general endowment fund and a limited portion of the income from this fund is used annually to support the operations of an organization. Larger gifts may be restricted by agreement between the donor and the recipient organization for specific, ongoing use and may be named to honor the donor, his or her family or some other worthy honoree.

Why are Endowment Funds Important to the Campus School?

The Endowment Fund is an investment fund that The Campus School establish in order to have the ability to regularly draw upon the invested capital. The goal is to grow the money over time by investing it and not touching the vast majority of the principle. The Campus School will draw around 5% of the endowment annually, so the fund can continue to grow over time.

Endowment Funds are often used to help the School accomplish specific projects that cannot be met by annual fund or general operating budget monies. A strong endowment is necessary to ensure that The Campus School’s longevity is guaranteed. Our loyal donors who support the endowment help ensure that the school’s financial future is solid.

What is the difference between the Endowment Fund and the Annual Fund?

Endowment Funds can be restricted to specific uses, such as scholarships, building enhancements or faculty enrichment, whereas Annual Funds are more general in nature, and not allocated to specific projects. While raising money for annual funds provides immediate benefits to the School, Endowment Funds offers long-term benefits to ensure the School’s viability in perpetuity.
