Salpointe Catholic Education Foundation

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 over $3.4M 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, updated employee lounge, 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.

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 cash, check or securities donation 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!  For more information email Jennifer Harris 520-547-1952.

    Since 1984, the SCEF has produced an annual gala fundraising event to benefit the Foundation and ultimately the Lancers.

    2018 Fire & Light Gala Chair Dawn Darling, Vice-Chair Denise Newton and the Gala Committee planned a spectacular evening in downtown Tucson at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) on April 21, 2018. Guests enjoyed dinner, dancing, live and silent auctions, and student performances in support of Salpointe! For information about the annual Salpointe Gala, please visit www.salpointe.org/gala.

    Salpointe's 2018 Fire & Light-themed Gala at the beautiful Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) raised more than $100,000 to benefit the Lancers! Event chair Dawn Darling and co-chair Denise Newton and their fantastic committee created an evening to remember.
