Our Work

We have been so fortunate to have been able to provide scholarships to so many families since our founding in 2018. We began in 2018 with 1 partner parish and have grown to partner with 10 different parishes through the Diocese of Toledo and the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston.

Upon our founding in 2018, we gave away around $7,000 in scholarships to families, and since then, we have been able to provide over $20,000 in scholarships to various families. We have been so blessed to help numerous families with Catholic education over the years, and we hope to continue this ministry.

Catholic education has been a blessing for many. Read about what Catholic education has meant for some of our scholarship recipients over the years

Responses from Past Scholarship Recipients

“Just seeing our Blessed Mother’s statue on campus brings a sense of peace to your day…While as a family, we are the first and most important place they learn these spiritual tools, it takes a village and Catholic schools reinforce what we already teach them at home.

– Katherine & Grayson Taylor

 “I would like my children to have the entire person, mind, body, and soul educated... As a Catholic school educator for 11 years, I see the huge emotional and spiritual growth of so many students and I want that for my children.

– Garrett & Katie Malone

$2,000 to St. Joseph Catholic School, Maumee, OH

It is important to have my children attend a Catholic School to promote the development of the whole person; spirt, mind, and body. They help foster a student’s relationship with God and develop a strong faith foundation.

– Marie & Daniel Moeller

$1,000 Scholarship to Holy Trinity Catholic School, Assumption, OH

“We believe that Catholic schools provide our children with the faith foundation needed to be successful in life. Catholic education gives our children the opportunity to deepen their Catholic faith outside of the home…Our family cannot imagine a world without Catholic schools.”

– Angela & Mark Bihn

St. Ignatius $1,000 Scholarship to Cardinal Stritch Academy, Oregon, OH

Catholic schools educate the whole child. Students learn values and skills that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. Students’ faith is cultivated and strengthened to be the Church of tomorrow. Catholic schools are families of faith that develop students for the world.

St. Ignatius $1,000 Scholarship to Cardinal Stritch Academy, Oregon, OH

“I believe, with all that I am, that a Catholic school will teach you how to have and keep a strong and faithful relationship with God. Starting each day with prayer and keeping the values of the school so close to them helps them become compassionate, honest, helpful members of the community.

– Chantell & Mike Miller

$1,000 Scholarship to Most Blessed Sacrament School, Toledo, OH
