The Beacon of Hope Scholarship Fund provides families with tuition assistance for their children to attend the Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Albany. Through the Beacon of Hope Scholarship Fund, we are giving the gift of potential to a young person. Every dollar donated directly benefits a student in the form of tuition assistance at one of 23 diocesan schools - opening a world of hope and opportunity for students in need. Investing in a child's potential is the greatest gift you can give.
