The Beacon of Hope Advisory Council is the consultative body of volunteers that assist with the management, marketing and fund raising activities for the Beacon of Hope Scholarship Fund. 

Members serve primarily as ambassadors to the mission, which is to make Catholic Education more affordable and accessible to all through tuition assistance. Council members help to bring new people in - as friends, volunteers, donors and ambassadors. They assist with planning fund raising and friend raising events and counsel staff with regards to marketing and public relations.

We are always looking for new Advisory Council members to help expand our mission!  If you are interested in joining the council, please contact the Catholic School Office at (518) 453-6602.
