Fund For the Future

Established in Spring 2017, the $25 million Fund for the Future is a multi-year philanthropic effort to strengthen academics, financials, and leadership at our Academies and to build new programs for teacher and principal support, which can be replicated at other schools. The Fund for the Future also includes an endowment component to provide a steady income stream for Catholic school improvement programs.

The Trustees have set the following goals for the Fund for the Future: 

$12.5M—to fund ongoing programs and operations
$6.5M—for new teacher/principal leadership and support programs, such as college loan debt forgiveness for qualified teachers, higher pay for performance, Master’s degree opportunities, and new teacher and principal leadership positions and training
$6M—in permanent endowment to fund scholarships and annual school operating/program needs
