The Foundation, and it’s donors and volunteers, help make the dream of a Catholic education a reality.

WHO WE ARE

The Foundation for the Advancement of Catholic Schools (FACS) is a local, nonprofit corporation that has supported the Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Hartford since 1983. The Foundation consists of a committed Board of Trustees led by Honorary Chairman Archbishop Leonard Paul Blair who believe that a Catholic education is an Education for a Lifetime.

What Our Students Think About Our Foundation

If you are going to invest your money in anything, why not education?  Education is something that lasts forever.

WHAT WE DO

Celebrating over 34 Years of Excellence in Catholic education

FACS remains committed to providing scholarship assistance and funding special projects in the Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Hartford. FACS raises funds through donations from generous individuals and businesses, special events and planned gifts. Our Catholic schools serve students of various religious backgrounds and FACS scholarships are awarded to children of all faiths. FACS goal is to ensure that all families who wish to send their children to Catholic schools are able to do so notwithstanding their financial situation.

The Foundation is in need of donors and volunteers to help make the dream of a Catholic education a reality.

“Having attended both Catholic and public schools,  I saw first -hand the stark and real cultural difference between the two ….. Catholic Schools provide our youth a “values- based” top quality education that prepares them to meet both educational and personal challenges.  This is why I support FACS, a Foundation which makes this education a reality for so many”
