What is the Catholic Education Foundation?

The Catholic Education Foundation was formed in 1995 as an independent 501 (c) (3) organization for the primary purpose of supporting the growth and vitality of Catholic parishes and schools in the Archdiocese of Louisville, Kentucky. The Foundation is committed to growing Catholic School enrollment throughout the Archdiocese by making a Catholic education available to anyone who with a demonstrated financial need, as determined by a third-party application.

The CEF supports Catholic education through grants for:

  • Tuition assistance for families
  • Technology enhancements for our parishes and schools
  • Professional development for educators and catechists

An independent Board of Directors governs the Foundation and oversees the management of the organization. All funds received by the Foundation are managed by an Investment Committee of the Board, and all grant awards are approved by the Catholic Education Foundation Board of Directors.
