Msgr. Joseph Mancuso Catholic Education Grant Program...

>> 01 MARCH 2020 Deadline <<

Providing a strong Catholic education for our youth has always been a priority of the Missouri State Knights of Columbus. Beginning in 1984, Msgr. Joseph Mancuso spearheaded a drive to establish a $1,000,000 Trust Fund to support and fund Catholic education programs around the state. Since 1990 interest earned from this fund has provided over $700,000 in grants to Catholic schools and parish based religious programs. During the 2019-2020 fraternal year this program was able to provide grants totaling $50,000 to almost 100 education programs throughout the four dioceses and archdiocese in Missouri. Catholic schools, which include pre-schools, parochial schools and high schools along with K-12 religious education programs may apply for either a $500 or $1000 grant.
