What We Fund
Our mission is to provide families with financial assistance for tuition making Catholic Education available for all. The Trust Fund was founded in 1986 with $32,000 and has since grown exponentially. It has been just in the last few years, due to several very generous donors, that the most growth has occurred and permitted enough annual earnings to provide regular distributions for financial aid. Since 2018 we have been able to contribute over $330,000 for special projects, urgent needs, and financial aid.
In 2017, the Trust Fund launched its first “Fund-a-Need” campaign at our annual Casino Night event. The purpose of the Fund-a-Need is to auction for funds for a very specific need identified by the principal. These dollars are funded immediately for the need identified. Since 2017 we have raised $73,125 and been able to provide a covered walkway connecting the school to the gym that protects students and teachers during adverse weather conditions, updated student textbooks, student Chromebooks with carts, new microscopes for the science lab, laptop computers for teachers, and classical curriculum textbooks.
Each year brings new opportunities, and we continue to work as a team to grow the Trust and the funding for Catholic Education tuition assistance.
Our students are the future of our Church.
