The mission of the Salpointe Catholic Education Foundation is to support the educational, moral, scientific and artistic 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 $1000 and $50,000. The Foundation's total assets, including endowment and unrestricted funds, is approximately $2.2M. Since 1984, the SCEF has approved grant requests of almost $3.5M 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.
