Mission Statement

The mission of the Seeds of Hope Charitable Trust is to make the tremendous benefits of a Catholic education available to economically disadvantaged children. Through tuition assistance grants, scholarships, vouchers, operating support, and grants for programs and technology, Seeds of Hope supports the Catholic elementary and high schools serving a low-income, high minority population concentrated in the inner city of Denver.

Description

Established in 1996, Seeds of Hope Charitable Trust is a partnership between the Archdiocese of Denver and concerned business and community leaders. Seeds of Hope provides increased funds for tuition assistance and solidifies the financial position of the Catholic elementary schools affiliated with the Archdiocese of Denver.

Since its inception, the primary focus of Seeds of Hope has been the six S.U.N. schools. These schools serve predominantly single-parent households in areas profoundly impacted by poverty and violence. The six schools include: Annunciation, Guardian Angels, Loyola, Presentation of our Lady, St. Francis de Sales, and St. Rose of Lima. More than ninety percent of the students in these schools have a minority background.

Each year, Seeds of Hope identifies additional schools with similar economic needs and demographic challenges. For the 2008-2009 school year these seven schools include: Assumption, Blessed Sacrament, St. Anthony, St. Bernadette, St. Catherine of Siena, St. Louis in Englewood, and St. Therese. These 13 schools are the primary focus of Seeds of Hope; however Seeds of Hope recognizes that poverty has no boundaries. Any child meeting the free and reduced Federal Hot Lunch Program guidelines and attending an Archdiocesan elementary school in grades K-8 is eligible for tuition assistance for the 2008-2009 school year.
