The Foundation, and it’s donors and volunteers, help make the dream of a Catholic education a reality.

WHO WE ARE

The Foundation for the Advancement of Catholic Schools (FACS) is a local, nonprofit corporation that has supported the Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Hartford since 1983. The Foundation consists of a committed Board of Trustees led by Honorary Chairman Archbishop Leonard Paul Blair who believe that a Catholic education is an Education for a Lifetime.

What Our Students Think About Our Foundation

If you are going to invest your money in anything, why not education? Education is something that lasts forever.

WHAT WE DO

We know we make a difference in student's lives!

Just see how far one of our FACS recipients has progressed and is paying it forward by helping others halfway across the world. FACS is honored to have touched his life so deeply.

Congratulations to FACS recipient Martin!

“Having attended both Catholic and public schools,  I saw first -hand the stark and real cultural difference between the two ….. Catholic Schools provide our youth a “values- based” top quality education that prepares them to meet both educational and personal challenges.  This is why I support FACS, a Foundation which makes this education a reality for so many”
