Endowed Funds for Catholic Schools

The general endowed funds for Catholic schools ensure that the nine Catholic schools in the Diocese of El Paso have the funds to provide long-term scholarships for economically disadvantaged students. Distributions from this funds are made based on need. The Foundation's goal is to build all of the Catholic schools' combined funds to $12 million in order to support and sustain Catholic education in the Diocese of El Paso in perpetuity.   

Bishop's Scholarship Fund
The Foundation for the Diocese of El Paso established the Bishop's Scholarship Fund in 2009 to provide an opportunity for deserving students to attend El Paso's excellent Catholic Middle and High Schools.  Bishop's Scholarships are available for a select number of students who: 1) meet the academic and extracurricular requirements of the scholarship application, 2) are recommended by their pastor/principal, 3) are at-risk and would benefit from a Catholic education, and 4) would not otherwise be able to attend Catholic school.   Bishop's Scholarships are available for students enrolling in the sixth grade or above at any El Paso Catholic Middle or High School.  The scholarship is renewable for as long as the student attends an El Paso Catholic school and remains in good standing. If you are interested in contributing to the Bishop's Scholarship Fund, please call the Foundation for the Diocese of El Paso at (915) 872-8412 or visit Bishop's Scholarship Fund  
Individual School Endowment Funds
Every school has an endowment fund, each with varying amounts.  It is the goal of each school to grow its endowment fund to 3 times the size of its annual operating budget.  If you are interested in contributing to a school's fund, please contact the Foundation for the Diocese of El Paso at (915) 872-8412 or visit  Diocesan Endowments for Schools
