As a self-supported initiative, your contributions are the sole support of the COLLEGE BOUND SCHOLARSHIP. Donors wishing to support the College Bound Fund may place their contributions in the clear marked box in the Foyer through the first of August. Awards take place during the 11:00 a.m. Mass in August before deserving students continue their educational pursuits at the college of their choice.
