Catholic education has long been recognized as an extraordinary gift to the Church, the nation and our own local communities. Catholic schools are an integral part of the church's effort to provide our young people with not only an excellent academic education, but also a faith formation that will ground them in their religious belief and values that will serve them their entire lives.
A Catholic education is truly an investment in the future of our children and our Catholic faith. We hope that you agree and will support one of the giving programs outlined here.
Saint Joseph Catholic School Endowment Fund
Gifts to the Saint Joseph Catholic School Endowment Fund at the Catholic Foundation of Northern Colorado will provide financial assistance to ensure that every child has the opportunity to receive a Catholic education. Please click on the file below for further information.
In these challenging economic times, many parents wishing to provide their children a Catholic education are financially unable to do so. The Mercy Scholarship Program enables children with limited financial means to attend Saint Joseph Catholic School and receive a superior education rooted in Catholic values. Your tax deductible donation brings not only the wonderful gift of a Catholic education, but it is an investment in the future of our Catholic faith.
Above & Beyond
The actual cost to educate a child at Saint Joseph Catholic School has always been greater than the requested tuition (usually by around $1,500). If you have children enrolled here and have been blessed with the ability to pay more than the requested tuition, we ask you to prayerfully consider doing so.
