ST IGNATIUS/DOROTHY RICE MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND - 20TH YEAR:
The St. Ignatius/Dorothy Rice Memorial Scholarship Fund has been in existence for 20 years. The fund was created to allow eligible students to continue receiving a Catholic Education. The annual fees at St. Ignatius are about $9500 per student. The scholarship fund tries to cover about fifteen to twenty percent of this for needy families. Each year, thanks to the generosity of parishioners, part proceeds from the Christmas fundraiser, and a number of other fundraisers,we assist 35-40 children with school fees. In return for the help the families must volunteer to work at school events during the term and the students must maintain high standards of behaviour and academic progress. We are once again trying to assist as many families as possible, especially in light of the economic downturn. One can never put a price tag on the value of a child’s education. Any donations are gratefully recived. Cheques should be made payable to ST. IGNATIUS and please write "Dorothy Rice Scholarship Fund" in the memo. Contributions may be dropped off to May at the parish office, Doris at the school office, or you can mail them to:
ST. IGNATIUS - DOROTHY RICE SCHOLARSHIP FUND, St. Ignatius Catholic Church & School, P.O. Box 2638, Grand Cayman KY1-1102.
Many thanks in advance for your ongoing support and may God continue to bless you!
