The Saint-Jean-Baptiste Educational Foundation has a list of dedicated donors comprised of past recipients, members and chapters of Catholic Financial Life and people who believe in our mission. The list keeps growing every year. All are invited to make annual gifts to the SJBEF, which is a 501(c)(3) organization thus making your donation tax-deductible. The Foundation welcomes and accepts donations of every amount. As a donor, you can designate each gift you give to be applied towards general scholarships for New England college students or to certain restricted funds.
