CATHOLIC CHARITIES OF LOUISVILLE
We received a letter from Catholic Charities thanking Ascension students and families for their generous donation of $108 for disaster relief. The donation will be used to support the efforts of Catholic Charities USA and Catholic Relief Services as they and their local agencies respond to the immediate emergency needs with humanitarian aid and US Conference of Catholic Bishops for pastoral and reconstruction needs of the Church.
TUITION ASSISTANCE FOR 2019/2020 SCHOOL YEAR
The Catholic Education Foundation, the Archdiocese of Louisville and funding partners are helping more families than ever who cannot afford the full cost of educating their children in a Catholic elementary school.
All families with one or more children enrolled in or applying to a Catholic elementary school in the Archdiocese of Louisville are eligible to apply.
Tuition assistance applications should be submitted between December 15, 2018 and February 28, 2019.
The FACTS management application, will be used for all forms of Catholic elementary school tuition assistance. Families must use the online application available on the website, www.ceflou.org.
When submitting your application, you must submit your 2017 federal income tax return and 2017 W-2 information. A new application is due each year.
Tuition assistance award letters will be mailed to families no later than June 15, 2019.
Completed applications received by February 28, 2019 will participate in the initial grant awards. A much smaller amount of tuition assistance may be available for forms submitted after that date.
Complete only one FACTS application for your family, including all students in the family (elementary and high school) on the same form. FACTS will send a need evaluation to all funding sources for which each family could qualify as well as the schools you have listed on the form.
If you have questions, please call the Catholic Education Foundation at (502) 585-2747, or visit them online. They will be happy to assist you!
