A Message From the Executive Director
This special issue of the Catholic Education Foundation’s (CEF) newsletter is dedicated to the achievements of our scholars and our organization throughout the 2015-2016 school year. These achievements would not have been possible without the unwavering support of CEF’s champions: our donors, supporters, and friends.
Since its founding in 1987, CEF has helped thousands of scholarship recipients attend and graduate from Catholic Schools. This past school year, CEF provided $13.9 million in assistance to over 10,000 students in more than 200 Archdiocesan schools. CEF’s role in keeping our schools open, and in making them accessible to our most financially challenged families, is absolutely crucial. Our goal for the upcoming school year is to continue to support as many students as possible.
As we approach our 30th Anniversary, we could not be more proud of the work that we do. On behalf of the Board and Staff of CEF, thank you for generously supporting Catholic education. Your continued support is more important than ever. Together we are Building Communities, Changing Lives, Funding Futures.
CEF Executive Director
