What is the St Francis Outreach Scholarship Fund?
Founded in 1999, St Francis Scholarship fund supports students both financially and through one-on-one mentoring:
- What courses and tests to take
- Filling in application forms
- Applying for financial aid
- Financial awards
- Encouragement through difficult times
- Continued support to find financial aid
- Being a listening ear, and provision of independent advice
Our first candidate graduated in 2008. Our second in June 2011, and our third graduated in this summer!
Our fourth recipient will be a Junior this Fall, and came to us via Mama Hill’s Help.
Who are Our Students?
What are we up to now?
We earn most of our money through Designs for Dining, our entertaining and popular fundraiser. We are already making plans for next year’s event – Friday February 24th 2017.
We welcome any parishioner who would like to be a part of this unique outreach ministry. We welcome your comments and inquiries.
How do we Raise Money – and How Can you Help?
The major fund-raiser for the program is our annual “Designs for Dining” event each Spring.
Other important funding comes from grocery store card contributions including Ralphs, Vons/Pavilions and also e-Scrip.
