Setting Up a Scholarship

The Parish currently has two established scholarship funds in the West Virginia Catholic Foundation to support families with children in St. Paul School.

  • The James White Scholarship was established by his family and provides an annual scholarship for a student at St. Paul School.
  • The Fr. Tom Schiffer Scholarship Fund was established by St. Paul Parish in loving memory of our former pastor who died in 2008.  Additional funds maybe added to this scholarship at any time.  Call the parish office for more information.

Additional named scholarships for St. Paul Grade School or Madonna High School can be established in the West Virginia Catholic Foundation for an initial gift of $5000.  Please contact the parish office for details.


St. Paul School is also seeking endowments of faculty positions to enable us to offer competitive salaries to our teachers.  These endowments would also be held in the West Virginia Catholic Foundation where the principal is not available to the school, the parish or the diocese.  Only the annual return on the investment would be used for supplementing salaries.  These endowments would be an appropriate way to remember a faculty or family member who had a particular impact on the donor’s life.  Named endowments begin at the $100,000 level (though this amount may be pledged over several years.)  Again, please call the parish office for more details or contact the Development Director at the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston  (304-233-0880 or
