Established February 2011
Sister M. Lucia Haas Scholarship Endowment
The Sister M. Lucia Haas Scholarship Endowment at Cardinal Mooney Catholic High School in Sarasota County, Florida, honored the friendship between Dorothy Patterson and Cardinal Mooney Catholic High School President Sister M. Lucia Haas. The endowment created a lasting benefit for the school by providing tuition scholarships for students with demonstrable financial need. The Patterson Foundation made a $1 million contribution to establish the fund in 2011 and issued a one-to-one matching challenge up to an additional $1 million. With the success of the match, a $3.2 million endowment was created to assist financially disadvantaged youth attending Cardinal Mooney Catholic High School.

In Ossining, New York, they met at St. Augustine Catholic School and were married in St. Augustine Catholic Church. Later, Dorothy volunteered at St. Agnes' Children's Hospital and supported the Dominican Sisters of the Sick Poor at St. Augustine's Catholic Church. After Jim's death in 1992, Sister M. Lucia Haas became a close friend of Dorothy Patterson.
