Support a Scholar Today!

Hundreds of students in the Diocese are looking for a Beacon of Hope.  By contributing, you will have a direct and lasting impact on the lives of young people by helping to keep them enrolled at a Catholic School where they will flourish.  Every dollar donated goes to a student in the form of tuition assistance, opening up a world of hope and opportunity.  If you wish, you may designate your gift to support a student at a specific Diocesan Catholic School. We graciously accept gifts of any amount - there is no gift too small if it helps to support a child's future.
