About the Catholic Schools Student Scholarship Endowment

The Catholic Foundation established the Catholic Schools Student Scholarship Fund in 2011. It came about as the result of numerous listening sessions with lay and ordained members of our diocese, who were asked to identify issues they viewed as most important to our parishes, families and Catholic life. It became clear that the dwindling population within our Catholic schools was critical, and the core cause of the crisis was the cost of tuition for our young families.

Creating a fund, in the beginning, is easy. You give it a name. The work begins when you strive to equip the fund to address its core need. Since 2011, the foundation has been raising dollars to do just that. Our ultimate goal is an endowed fund of $1 million. We are proud to say today that we’re over halfway there-just under $650,000.

Please know that your Catholic Foundation is made for giving! Along this fundraising journey we distributed:

  • $13,500 to 17 schools for 45 scholarships (2013)

  • $20,100 to 18 schools for 67 scholarships (2014)

  • $24,000 to 23 schools for 80 scholarships (2015)

  • $33,900 to 25 schools for 113 scholarships (2016)

  • $30,000 to 25 schools for 100 scholarships (2017)
     

Since 2013, 405 scholarships have been given totaling $121,500.
