Saint Katharine Drexel Fund

 The Saint Katharine Drexel Fund provides assistance to parishes in the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City to carry out their mission of Catholic education.  By empowering local parish communities to direct educational funds where they are most needed, the Drexel Fund seeks to ensure the system of Catholic schools in the Archdiocese is financially stable for future generations.

Saint Katharine Drexel imbued the love of God and neighbor.  She took an avid interest in the material and spiritual well-being of black and Native Americans, founding schools throughout the American South and West. Because of her lifelong dedication to her faith and her selfless service to the oppressed, Pope Saint John Paul II canonized her on October 1, 2000 to become only the second recognized American-born saint. More details are available here.

Examples of how Drexel Fund gifts may be used:

·         Provide financial need-based scholarships

·         Pay teachers’ salaries

·         Provide learning aids and materials in classrooms

·         Cover and provide for general overhead and expenses

 Saint John Baptist de La Salle Fund

The Saint John Baptist de La Salle Fund provides professional education and leadership formation opportunities for teachers and principals serving Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City. The principal position is the central leadership role in any Catholic school. The La Salle Fund seeks to elevate the professional capacity of future Catholic school leaders.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle is the patron saint of principals and teachers and is seen as a role model for those who work to educate children in Catholic schools. La Salle established a unique lay religious group dedicated exclusively to Catholic education. Today, the educational movement that he began continues to inspire all Catholic educators.
