In April, Cardinal Mooney Catholic High School announced a fundraising campaign to support the Sister M. Lucia Haas Scholarship Endowment for student tuition assistance. During the campaign kick-off, The Patterson Foundation contributed $1 million to establish the endowment.
In addition to the initial gift, TPF announced it would offer up to an additional $1 million in a matching challenge to inspire an already generous community to contribute and participate to support CMHS. The gift, challenge and creation of the endowment honor the devout faith of the foundation's benefactor, Dorothy Patterson.
To date, an extremely giving community has pledged approximately $196,000 to the Sister M. Lucia Haas Scholarship fund. As the pledge funds are collected throughout the campaign, The Patterson Foundation will match up to $1 million in donations that qualify.
