"Lourdes Foundation unites alumni, parents, and friends in celebration and support of Rochester Catholic Schools."
Lourdes Foundation Board Adopts New Mission Statement
The Lourdes Foundation Board of Directors recently updated the mission statement of the Foundation.
This statement opens the door for benefactors to direct their gifts to include the elementary schools as well as Lourdes High School. We recognize the need for tuition assistance across pre-K through 12th grade is great and that financing a Catholic education is a long-term commitment and often a challenge for families at all grade levels.
Lourdes Foundation will remain an independent nonprofit organization governed by its own Board of Directors and independent of the Diocese of Winona.
Lourdes Foundation is proud of its 40-year history, connecting alumni, parents and friends of Lourdes High School. We will continue to sponsor student and staff enrichment opportunities, assist with class reunions, sponsor events and provide useful information about the Lourdes community through the Aquila magazine and our recently updated website.
Lourdes Foundation is steadfast in its commitment to students, families, staff and alumni of Lourdes High School. The numerous endowed scholarships established over the past 40 years will continue to be awarded as they have been, providing critical financial assistance to students at Lourdes High School. Honoring donor intent is not only a priority of the Lourdes Foundation but is also our ethical responsibility.
Assuring the future of Catholic education in Rochester by improving access and affordability was the intent of the founders and continues to guide the Lourdes Foundation today.
