Support Scholarships

We need more than $1.4 million to fund more than 1,400 scholarships at 21 schools this year. Every gift of “two fish” brings us closer to meeting the ocean of need. How many children can you help? Learn more about our Scholarship Drive.

Ways to Give

Remember CEF for:

  • Individual donations
  • Matching gifts
  • Planned gifts
  • Annual appeals
  • Special events
  • 8th grade class gifts
  • School projects
  • Men’s and women’s service groups’ charity donations
  • In memory of a loved one
  • In honor of a special someone’s birthday, anniversary, wedding
  • Give back to the community by sponsoring scholarships for children to go to a CEF school.

Raise Awareness

CEF graduates are three times as likely to attend college as their peers. And Catholic school graduates are more likely to vote, be civically engaged, and actively serve their communities. Help us spread the word about the impact of CEF schools by sharing this infographic with your friends or inviting them to our social media channels.

Get Involved

We work hard, but we like to have fun too. Register for an upcoming event or join one of our committees to see why our annual celebration has been named one of the top 5 events in Kansas City.
