Hope for the Future

Development Board

The Hope for the Future Development Board is a partnership between the Archdiocese of San Antonio and concerned business and community leaders to develop the financial resources necessary to strengthen Catholic educational opportunities for all children. The Development Board accomplishes this monumental task by providing tuition assistance for eligible families who wish to send their children to an Archdiocesan Catholic School and by providing grant funds to schools for curriculum, technology and facility improvements. The Hope for the Future Development Board is committed to building up the children, teachers and Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of San Antonio so our future leaders will be sound in mind, body and spirit.
