The General Financial Aid Fund provides financially challenged families across Long Island with partial scholarships so that their children can receive a Catholic elementary education. With your generous support Tomorrow’s Hope Foundation can help provide financial assistance to support their education at a Catholic elementary school in the Diocese of Rockville Centre.
Be a Star to a Student
Students in need of tuition assistance are matched to a “Star”, a generous donor who contributes tuition assistance of $2,000 per student per year for a set period of time while the parents contribute the remainder of the tuition. Tuition varies across the Diocese and this program is intended to fund about half of the student’s tuition and that any monies left over from the contribution will be placed in the General Financial Aid Program. The current average tuition for the first child is about $4,500. The “Star” receives progress reports and personal letters from their student.
Matching Gift Funds
Many employers have matching gift programs that could double your donation to the Foundation. Contact your company’s human resources department to find out more information.
