Loretto Academy Scholarship Fund

Endowment Fund

When Loretto Academy was founded by the Sisters of Loretto in San Elizario, TX, in 1879, it was the first Catholic preparatory school for women in the Southwest. Loretto, at its present site in El Paso, was established in 1923. Today, Loretto is home to an active co-educational pre-school and elementary school as well as a middle school and high school program designed for young women.

Why Give to Endowment?

Endowed funds provide a vehicle through which individuals make outright or planned gifts that will have an everlasting impact on the ministry/parish/school. In time the income generated by the gift will far exceed the original donation.

As a result, endowed funds provide a perpetual, supplemental source of income for such things as the enhancement of programs and ministries, facilities maintenance, scholarships and seminary assistance, priest retirement, etc. Learn more about endowed funds.
