Endowed Scholarships


“Scholarships are great equalizers. They make DSHA a really diverse community, with girls from every part of greater Milwaukee.”
– Calynn Klohn, DSHA ‘16

Lend a Hand That Never Lets Go

Endowed scholarship funds ensure unending support for students and the purposes specified by the donor.

Scholarship awards from these funds are made annually to students who meet criteria established by fund donors. Many scholarship funds commemorate family members. Others recognize the businesses or organizations that established them. And some pay tribute to faculty and staff members who have helped make DSHA Wisconsin’s best school for high school girls.

Endowed scholarship funds address the purposes established by their donors. A few examples:

  • Supporting students who excel in science, English or the arts;
  • Helping young women with financial need from Catholic grade schools throughout the region;
  • Assisting students of color from urban schools and neighborhoods;
  • Recognizing students who have made extraordinary community service contributions. 

What kind of difference do you want to make?
A scholarship endowment fund can be tailored to the causes that matter most to you. Ways to establish an endowed scholarship fund include:

  • An outright gift, sometimes pledged over several years;
  • Appreciated stock or real property that can be easily liquidated;
  • Planned gifts such as a bequest, charitable remainder trust or insurance policy;
  • Retirement fund assets.

To find out how you can add opportunity through endowed scholarships, contact Christa Shields, Senior Director of Development at 414-616-2807 or shieldsc@dsha.k12.wi.us.
