Elementary Schools

Thousands of students in Catholic elementary schools benefit from the assistance from the Catholic Services Appeal Foundation. This grant supports Catholic elementary schools in need in our Archdiocese.

Grants are provided to schools with significant unmet financial needs in order for them to continue operations. Most of the elementary schools who receive funding are located within the central cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul. However, we also provide grants to rural schools who are most in need.

The Catholic Services Appeal Foundation is pleased to be able to support schools in communities with the greatest need in the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis.

For most ministries, CSAF funds only part of their annual budget. Some ministries have other sources of funds, such as participant fees and direct donor gifts for some of their programs.
