Catholic schools transform lives. Without access to a quality education, children who grow up in poverty are more like to become adults living in poverty.
We believe that housing is a human right. A stable, safe home is essential to supporting the family structure, meeting the needs of the whole child, and breaking free of poverty.
We identify and fund evidence-based programs working to prevent and treat substance use that contributes to intergenerational poverty.
We seek lasting systematic change through bold investments that make the biggest difference for the most vulnerable.
We seek to maximize institutional impact by helping visionary leaders expand their organization’s capacity.
We invest in programs that empower individuals to reach their potential and realize their dreams.
