Innovate Education & Fund Critical Initiatives

The mission of the Salpointe Catholic Education Foundation is to support the educational, moral, scientific, artistic and athletic endeavors of the Salpointe community. The Foundation has touched the lives of generations of Lancers. Incorporated in 1984, the Foundation was blessed with 97 charter members who donated $120,000 to create an endowed fund.

Today, the Foundation has grown to over 737 members who have made gifts of between $1,000 and $50,000. The Foundation's total assets, including endowment and unrestricted funds, is approximately $2.3M. Since 1984, the SCEF has approved grant requests of $4M to enhance the educational experience of Lancers. Some highlights of the Foundation’s impact include funding campus-wide wifi, STEM equipment and programming, digital photography lab, new transportation vans, theater upgrades, and most significantly, the gift of $1.5M to build Foundation Hall which serves as an all-school cafeteria and multipurpose space for our frequent community events, and, most recently, a $500,000 pledge to the Aspire Capital Campaign.

The Foundation raises funds in a variety of ways:

List of 3 items.

  • Membership

    All families and friends of Salpointe are encouraged to become members of the SCEF.  Lifetime memberships are granted with a gift of $1,000, payable at once or over one year.  Membership upgrades are always encouraged! The initial membership donation of $1,000 goes directly to the endowed fund, and as such, provides long-term support for the mission of Salpointe. Members are publicly recognized in perpetuity on the SCEF Wall of Donors for your total Foundation giving as well as listed online and in Salpointe's Annual Report. CLICK HERE TO DONATE OR JOIN!
