Sponsor a Student Program

The Catholic Diocese of Wilmington believes that all children who desire to attend a Catholic school should be allowed to do so, regardless of their family’s financial position. Unfortunately, many children cannot remain in our Catholic schools yearly because tuition expenses have grown beyond their family’s reach.

The diocese has established a Vision for the Future Sponsorship Program that matches donors with students who need tuition assistance. This program compliments the Share in the Spirit collection and the Diocese’s Vision for the Future Education Trust.

You can support an elementary school student in need with an annual contribution of $2,500 or more. Your sponsorship will be designated to a K-8 student whose family qualifies for tuition assistance based on the financial evaluation.

Your sponsorship is a special way to provide an education focused on academic rigor and student achievement in an atmosphere of deep faith and spirituality.

We recently developed an all-new “Sustainers Program.” If you are so blessed, your sponsorship donation will have an impact today and into the future! See below for details!

Your investment in Catholic education will make a difference in the life of Catholic school student, their family, and the community. Because when you sponsor a Catholic school student, you are helping to instill in them self-discipline, personal integrity, and moral values that prepare them to become leaders committed to social responsibility and civic duty.

Everybody needs a little help sometimes!
