The Frances Xavier Warde School (FXW) takes its name from Mother Frances Xavier Warde, an Irish immigrant and Sister of Mercy who arrived in Chicago in 1846. Mother Warde was relentless in her compassionate outreach to those in need. Guided by her faith, she worked tirelessly to ensure every single person she met received the services they needed to not only survive but thrive within the burgeoning city of Chicago.
Following in Mother Warde’s footsteps, The FXW Fund allows us to devote the resources necessary to foster the unique FXW community, grounded in faith, service, and inclusion, educating the whole child. Your generosity creates more than an exemplary school; it also creates an unparalleled educational experience.
