Thank you for your generosity!

T his is the 12th annual fundraising dinner event for Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Phoenix. Recognizing that Catholic education is vital to the future of our Church, the mission of Night of Hope is to make a Catholic education in the Diocese of Phoenix affordable and accessible to those who truly want to bring up their children in a loving faith-filled environment. We hope to do this by increasing funding for scholarships throughout the diocese.

Our Vision:

Night of Hope is an evening celebrating the Catholic schools in the Diocese of Phoenix. By bringing members of every school community together, we want to showcase our common faith foundation while sharing each school’s unique identity. We look forward to an evening that highlights the achievements of our students and is centered around fellowship and celebration.

Our Goal:

The ability to provide scholarships to every child seeking a Catholic education is the goal of the Night of Hope. It is our hope to provide a Catholic education to more and more students each year.

How are Funds Utilized:

The funds raised during this event are utilized in two ways.  First, 90% of the proceeds go to assist families with immediate emergency tuition needs.  Many families find themselves in life situations such as a family member’s death, serious medical conditions, sudden loss of employment or other tragedies that may preclude them from being able to pay tuition at certain times.   Funds raised would go to support families in these situations.  The remainder of the funds are focused on our Today’s Children Tomorrow’s Leaders endowment to build capacity to help families with tuition needs for years to come.

How Can You Help?

Your gift in support of Night of Hope will be a lasting gift to the schools in our diocese. Your gift has the potential to change thousands of lives now and in the future. Your gift will reach into our poorest neighborhoods, giving the endless blessing of a faith-based education to a child who truly needs it. With your gift, you strengthen the legacy given to each of us, ensuring that it will continue for generations to come, opening up the possibilities of a Catholic education for every child.

The 2019 Night of Hope Gala was a beautiful event celebrating Catholic education and honoring our Religious Sisters who have been instrumental in supporting many of the Catholic Schools within the Diocese. Our sincere gratitude goes out to everyone who made the night such a special event. On behalf of the Diocese of Phoenix Catholic Schools Office and Night of Hope Committee, we would also like to extend our deep appreciation to those who accepted the invitation to provide a gift in support of our mission, which is to make a Catholic education in the Diocese of Phoenix affordable and accessible to those who truly want to bring up their children in a loving faith-filled environment.
