The Education Forever Fund is a perpetual endowment designed to support students of faith within our community by granting scholarships for Catholic tuition. A Catholic education not only provides a solid foundation in faith formation, but also puts students on the path to educational success.
The Catholic Community Foundation is granting tuition scholarships to families in our community through the Education Forever Fund, but we need your help. Contribute to our Education Forever Fund endowment today and help us grant tuition scholarships for Catholic education forever!
TUITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
The mission of the Catholic Community Foundation's Tuition Assistance Scholarship Program is to assist students and their families in helping to make Catholic education achievable. Did You Know... 3 out of 4 Catholic families cannot afford the cost of a Catholic education?
In the 2019-2020 school year, the Catholic Community Foundation awarded $323,000 in tuition assistance scholarships by implementing a needs-based pilot scholarship program. Phase 1 addressed ten Catholic elementary schools in the Diocese of Phoenix who were selected for tuition assistance based on the FAIR application data provided by Catholic Education Arizona. From those schools, 19 deserving students were awarded scholarships.
“As a mother of four children, I thought that a Catholic high school experience was beyond our means," said Sarah A., mom of Christian, a 2020 CCF Tuition Assistance Scholarship recipient. "When our elementary school principal told us about an amazing opportunity through the Catholic Community Foundation, we applied. We were thrilled to be notified that a scholarship was awarded. Thanks to this amazing opportunity, my son will be able to receive a faith-informed, high-quality education during some of the most important formative years of his life.”
For the 2020-2021 school year, Phase 2 of the program will be offered to the remaining Diocesan elementary schools. The application process will occur in the spring, and seventh-grade students will be eligible to apply. Students will be awarded $17,000 with the breakdown as follows: $1,000 for eighth-grade tuition and $4,000 per year for Catholic high school tuition.

What is an Endowment?
An endowment is a financial investment vehicle designed to withstand economic instabilities through sensible investing practices. Grants are distributed each year, while still permitting the corpus of the fund to grow. This allows for present day community impact from a fund that is guaranteed to last in perpetuity!
