Dear Nolan Catholic Senior:

The Stephen Breen Memorial Foundation (“Foundation”) is pleased to offer for the 11th year, a scholarship to a graduating senior from Nolan Catholic High School. Stephen Breen was a sophomore at Nolan Catholic High School when he passed away from cancer in 2004. 

The Foundation is committed to offering financial aid to local children who seek the strength and values of a Catholic education; and to those courageous children and their families whose lives are afflicted with cancer during their lifetime. Stephen greatly valued his education at both St. Andrew and Nolan Catholic. Before he died, Stephen’s wish was to help less fortunate children have the same opportunity he had. One in eight children in Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Fort Worth currently receive financial aid, and many more are in need, if only the resources were available.

Since inception, Stephen’s Foundation has provided over $1.2 million in financial aid to more than 2000 children from 1000 different families. These children attend 19 different Catholic schools in the Diocese of Fort Worth.  Additionally, Stephen’s Foundation has provided over $250,000.00 in assistance to children with cancer and their families being treated at Cook Children Hospital.

 The Stephen Breen Memorial Foundation is also pleased to offer a $5000.00 college scholarship to a graduating senior from Nolan Catholic High School.  This scholarship is only awarded for the student’s freshman year in college.

 The qualifications for receiving the scholarship are noted on the attached scholarship application. Please note the deadline for submission is Friday, May 11th, 2018. Applications must be received by this date to be considered.

Sincerely,

Jim Breen

President – Stephen Breen Memorial Foundation
