The PLEASE Foundation provides mentoring & scholarships for inner-city students to attend Catholic Schools in New Orleans. The Foundation is raising funds for our 4th Annual Joseph McCloskey Schmidt 5 Year Scholarship. Every year, we honor Joseph Schmidt's memory by giving the gift of a Catholic education to an inner-city child to attend a Catholic School for 5 years. Funds raised will provide tuition & school necessities for all 4 Joseph Scholars until they graduate High School.
Since 2007, the PLEASE Foundation has given 318 scholarships and awarded over $1,156,000.00 in scholarship money. 100% of our 2014-2017 graduates are now attending college with scholarships.
