WHILE THE SCHOOL YEAR MAY BE ENDING, it doesn’t mean education should be put on the backburner. In an ideal world, every child would have access to challenging academic experiences and the educational resources necessary for success. However, due to socioeconomic factors, quality education is often not guaranteed for many children in our community. The Today and Tomorrow Educational Foundation is dedicated to providing local families freedom of educational choice, so every child can achieve their academic, civic and economic goals. For more than 30 years, the nonprofit has provided scholarships so students can attend private or parochial schools that will better serve them.
Thank you to our sponsors and donors for making the 13th Annual Archbishop’s Gala such a success! All gifts are an investment in hope and opportunity for St. Louis kids.
Our sold out gala raised a record-setting $1,031,525 in support of Today and Tomorrow Educational Foundation scholarship programs. The evening featured special performances from the St. Joseph Cottleville Jazz Band, St. Margaret of Scotland Violinists, the St. Frances Cabrini Student Choir, the Cardinal Ritter College Prep Jazz Ensemble, and vocalist Peter Murphy from St. Mary’s High School.
Archbishop Rozanski and TTEF Board Chairman Kevin M. Short bestowed the The Sr. Mary Ann Eckhoff Leadership Award upon longtime supporters Rita and Mike Mooney, and our distinguished alumnus Luis Llanos inspired the audience with his story of impact resulting from his scholarship and educational opportunity. Luis said it best: “I am proof that your support of the Today and Tomorrow Educational Foundation changes lives. That small kid who did not know English, starting early education at St. Cecilia School and Academy is now working with Fortune 500 C-suite executives all over the world. Thank you all for believing in me and giving me this incredible opportunity.”
