St. Mary Cathedral School - Tuition Scholarship Fund
The Tuition Angel Scholarship Program provides the opportunity of a Catholic school education to all families, regardless of income. We are grateful to our loyal parishioners, alumni, school families and friends who have contributed to this worthy cause throughout the years.
Tuition Scholarships are currently funded two ways: through tax-deductible donations made directly to the general scholarship fund, and by revenue generated from the Tuition Angel Raffle.
In 2010, it was apparent that there was a need to raise additional funds to help support the growing number of families requesting tuition assistance. The Tuition Angel Raffle was introduced and has proven to be a wonderful addition.
Approximately 30% of students attending St. Mary Cathedral School each year receive financial assistance. Scholarships are awarded to families based on financial need, and are used solely for tuition at St. Mary Cathedral School.
What is the Tuition Angel Raffle and how are tickets purchased?
The Tuition Angel Raffle is a fun way to support families in need of tuition assistance at St. Mary Cathedral School and generates over $60,000 annually for the scholarship program. The raffle runs from May through April, each year with tickets sold beginning in March.
