Help fund the educational gap!

Spirit Fund helps bridge the $1900 per child education cost gap. Our goal is to fund this gap so that a Catholic education is available to more families. We are indeed blessed and grateful for your support.No amount is too small. If everyone participates at level comfortable with them, we make a large impact.


Spirit Fund is essential to our mission.

Spirit Fund strengthens our ability to educate the future leaders of our church and society. This mission requires the support of the entire Catholic community.

Pope Francis reminds us in Evangelii Gaudium (2013):
We are living in an information-driven society which bombards us indiscriminately with data—all treated as being of equal importance—and which leads to remarkable superficiality in the area of moral discernment. In response, we need to provide an education which teaches critical thinking and encourages the development of mature moral values. (64)

Spirit Fund is the Lafayette Catholic School System’s unrestricted annual giving program. Simply put, each year we rely on gifts to the Spirit Fund to operate our schools and programs that enable us to fulfill our mission. These programs include strong academics, thriving campus ministries, fine arts, student clubs, and athletics.


We recognize the commitment.

While we recognize that our families are making a sacrifice to send their children to the Lafayette Catholic School System, tuition alone does not cover the cost to educate each student. Spirit Fund bridges the gap so a Catholic education is available to all families. No gift is too small and monthly commitments as small as $5 per month make a difference.


Your continued commitment.

The support of Catholic schools is the shared responsibility, and our schools have remained strong in large part due to the commitment of our alumni, parents, parishioners, friends and community.  

Our Catholic schools could not exist or plan for the future without your stewardship in prayer, talent and treasurer. We are indeed blessed and grateful for your support.
