FACE provides need-based tuition grants to students who attend Catholic schools in the Diocese of Oakland. FACE was founded in 1978 and helps students regardless of religion, gender, ethnicity or citizenship. We hope to support over 700 students every school year. The recent success of our annual Gala and donated funds increases the number of grants given each year. The Diocese of Oakland includes 39 elementary and 9 secondary Catholic schools throughout the East Bay.

The BASIC Fund

The BASIC Fund is a privately funded organization providing partial-tuition scholarships to low-income families across the Bay Area, helping them afford the cost of tuition at the private school of their choice. This program is intended as a helping hand for families enrolling their children at a private school for the first time.
