Following the death of her husband, Sean, Carol Reilly wanted to help provide others with access to the same Catholic Faith and education that was such a integral part of their family history. The Foundation helped Carol extend the future legacy of her and her husband, while also fulfilling her wish to help Catholic students of tomorrow and today.

Carol and her late husband Sean always credited their Catholic education as an integral part of nurturing faith in their lives. The strong foundation that a Catholic upbringing provided for their own faith and education led them to establish an endowment to pay it forward to younger generations who might not be able to afford it otherwise. By acknowledging the importance of a child’s growth in their faith being paralleled with every other subject they learn in school allows faith to “be a part of our lives always and not compartmentalized.”
