Ways to Give
Friends of Catholic Education
Friends of Catholic Education is a zero overhead, direct assistance tuition trust that matches every contribution dollar-for-dollar. Established in 1997 by the late James Robinson and a small independent group concerned about the survival of four parish schools (Saint Catherine, Saints Peter and Paul, Holy Family Cathedral School, and Instituto Bilingue Guadalupano at Saint Francis Xavier), Friends of Catholic Education continues to provide assistance to “at risk” children. These are kids who, without the benefits of a Catholic education, might well be subjected to environments and academic levels far less conducive to their later success.
Go for Catholic Schools
GO for Catholic Schools, Inc. (“GO”) is a scholarship granting organization established in compliance with a new tax credit scholarship law in Oklahoma to help make a Catholic school education more affordable and accessible for all children. What makes GO such an attractive tool for you is that individuals, married couples and businesses receive a state income tax credit worth up to 50% of the amount of their contribution to GO! That tax credit, especially when combined with the charitable contribution deduction, dramatically lowers the net cost of your contribution to GO.
Network for Good
Network for Good is a website that you can directly donate to Saint Catherine Church or School.
Saint Francis of Assisi Tuition Assistance Trust
The Saint Francis of Assisi Tuition Assistance Trust, funded through interest earned on a $5 million endowment pledged through the 1999 Diocesan Fund for the Future campaign, was formed to help Catholic parents who could not otherwise send their children to a Catholic school. Since 2001, the Trust has awarded over $3 million in financial aid to approximately 4,000 students.
