Endowment

Purpose

Tuition does not cover the full cost of educating a Prairie student, and the Prairie Fund helps fill that gap. When we exceed our Prairie Fund goal, we are then able to add or enhance current programs and spaces.

Premiere is Prairie’s largest annual fundraising event, bringing over 400 parents, alumni, and friends together in support of our students.

As one of the most profitable golf outings in the nation, Prairie’s annual Golf Classic & Dinner raises significant funds for our scholarship and financial aid program.

Prairie’s endowment operates like a long-term savings account, where the school uses a portion of the interest to fund daily operations, financial aid, and scholarships.

Timing

Prairie’s fiscal year runs from July 1 – June 30 each year. All pledges to the Prairie Fund must be paid on or before June 30th to count in the current fiscal year.

Save the date! Premiere 2019 will be held on April 27, 2019.

The Golf Classic is held annually in mid-September.

Endowment contributions can be made at any point in the year.

Designation

If you make an unrestricted gift to the Prairie Fund, it will be funneled to the area of highest need. However, donors may also choose to designate their Prairie Fund gift to a specific department, division, or program.

All funds raised by Premiere go directly to student scholarships and financial aid.

All funds raised by the Classic go directly to student scholarships and financial aid.

Gifts or pledges below $25,000 can be made to the general endowment; at $25,000 and up, donors may choose to designate their contributions to a specific area.

Impact

In 2018-19, the Prairie community will raise $625,000 (or more!) in the Prairie Fund to continue to provide the experiences that make our school the best in Wisconsin.

In 2018, Premiere raised over $280,000 for our scholarship fund.

In 2019, the Golf Classic & Dinner raised over $120,000.

The endowment is a critical part of Prairie’s past, present, and future stability. Our annual budget incorporates endowment income as a key piece of our overall revenue.
