By donating to the Beacon of Hope Scholarship Fund, you are giving students the opportunity to maximize their potential through Higher Powered Learning.

The Scholarship Fund is called “Beacon of Hope” to reflect the boundless hope that Catholic Schools afford to children throughout the Diocese of Albany.

It also reflects the hope of so many families for the financial assistance they need to be able to send their children to one of our Catholic schools.

Through the kindness and generosity of our donors, we are committed to growing our Beacon of Hope Scholarship Fund each year so that as many students as possible can receive the tuition assistance they need.

By donating to the Beacon of Hope Scholarship Fund, you answer many prayers and truly make a difference in the lives of our children.
