Tuition Assistance Grants

The Orange Catholic Foundation (OCF) Grants Committee is pleased to offer Tuition Assistance Grants to Catholic elementary schools in the Diocese of Orange. These grants are made possible from generous donors in the Diocese of Orange who make gifts to the annual Pastoral Services Appeal (PSA), the For Christ Forever Capital Campaign, and the annual Conference on Business & Ethics and from the interest earnings OCF receives from our endowment funds designated for tuition assistance.
