Become an "Angel for Education" when you participate in the Angels for Education Annual Giving Campaign. The campaign helps maintain our excellent educational programs while keeping tuition as affordable as possible for our families. Our commitment to accessibility for present and future generations requires your support, so please become an Angel for Education today and give a gift of Catholic education through the Angels for Education Annual Campaign.
Angels for Education sustains our school and students, each and every family and parishioner is asked to donate during this recognized time of giving.
Scholarships for Tuition Assistance
Our Lady of Lourdes School provides need-based scholarships to school families who cannot afford to pay their total educational costs. Our goal to raise $120,000 for annual scholarships is based on expected enrollment, current year needs, and projected future needs. The amount of scholarship aid we are able to give is directly dependent on the amount we are able to raise through the Angels for Education Annual Giving Campaign.
There are several scholarship funds to choose, ones managed by our school: Sister Mary Leona Father Dillon Fund, Jeanne Berens Ghormley, Memorial Fund, and endowed scholarships funds, managed by the Community Foundation of Southwest Washington: Gabriel Antonio Fazio, Buck Fund, Knights of Columbus.
We have another incredible opportunity to double donations! We thank Dick Hannah Dealerships for their generous $25,000 match for scholarships. This is the sixth year Our Lady of Lourdes School has been priviledged to receive such a matching opportunity and we thank and appreciate Dick Hannah Dealerships. We also thank the OCF Joseph E.Weston Public Foundation for a $15,000 matching grant for tuition assistance.
A healthy Endowment Fund is the best insurance for the future financial stability of our school and the accessibility of Catholic education for students yet to come. When fully funded at $1,000,000, the Endowment will provide an annual source of income. We thank the OCF Joseph E.Weston Public Foundation for a $20,000 matching grant for endowment gifts.
The Lourdes Fund for Greatest Needs
Gifts we receive that are not designated for scholarship aid or endowment, are considered to be unrestricted and will be applied to the Lourdes Fund for the areas of greatest need within our school. The Lourdes Fund may help us meet matching grant requirements, or pay for things like educational enhancements, facility improvements, faculty training, scholarship aid or other areas as needed.
For those interested in providing restricted funding please email the Development Director for current information on the needs of the school, or phone 360.696.2301 Ext. 202.
