We will slowly transition out of funding private school choice and instead concentrate funding for Catholic education within the Los Angeles Archdiocese within our Catholic Sisters Program. This will give the Foundation opportunities to dive more deeply into improving educational outcomes for vulnerable and disadvantaged children in our local community.

Timeframe for the Transition

We desire to transition this work as thoughtfully and respectfully as possible. To that end, we are exploring the best potential grantee partners to help fulfill our transition out of Catholic Education, which is currently targeted for 2021.

Objectives of the Transition

Our time as a partner in the Catholic Education field has brought many successes and learnings. To transition appropriately, we are working with two key objectives in mind:

  1. Convene the field to celebrate work and share best practices: We are exploring ways to convene the Catholic Education field as a means to celebrate the great work to date and share best practices.
  2. Identify potential funders and stakeholders: For us, leaving the Catholic Education area with minimal disruption means taking an active role in encouraging the next generation of funding partners and stakeholders to support and join the field.
