Foundation Seeks All-Time Record Net $875,000 to Benefit Catholic School Families and Parishes in the Archdiocese of Louisville
The Catholic Education Foundation will host its 28th annual Salute to Catholic School Alumni Dinner at the Galt House Hotel on Wednesday, March 14, 2018.
Established in 1990, the Salute has become a hallmark community event in the Commonwealth, raising funds for families, parishes and schools to provide tuition assistance for families as well as grants for religious education, professional development of teachers and advancements in technology. In the fall of 2017, the Foundation and its funding partners awarded an all-time high $6.5 million in tuition assistance to a record 3,000 students in Catholic elementary schools.
2017 Salute to Catholic School Alumni Honorees
This year’s event generated a new record high of $825,000 in net proceeds, rocketing past the previous year record of $750,000. All of the funds from the Salute will be used to provide tuition assistance to families who cannot afford the full cost of a Catholic elementary education for their children. The Archdiocese of Louisville sponsors 40 Catholic elementary schools in central Kentucky with aggregate student enrollments of 13,500.
This highly successful event was co-chaired by the Most Reverend Joseph E. Kurtz, Archbishop of Louisville, and Mr. Michael K. Ash, Regional President of Fifth Third Bank Kentucky.
