Emergency Family Support Fund
Across the United States, schools, colleges—and even entire universities—are closing their doors to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. Seton Education Partners serves 4,200+ children across our Brilla charter and Catholic blended learning network schools. Because many of the children we serve rely on our schools for meals, a safe place to be after-school, and other services, we have started an Emergency Family Support Fund. Seton is asking for your help to provide non-perishable food, extra educational materials, rental assistance (for those who temporarily lose their income), and other support to our most vulnerable families.
Seton will ensure 100% of donated funds will go directly to families experiencing financial hardship in response to changes in school operations as a result of COVID-19.
In these uncertain times, we are reminded that life is fragile—and that we need God. We ask for your prayers for all those who have been affected by the coronavirus—for those who have died, become seriously ill, have suffered isolation through quarantine, who are caring for the sick, and who have been unable to make a living because of it. We thank you for your support.
Your contribution will help us to grow our work to find financially viable ways to achieve the goals of Catholic education for the poor, helping hundreds of children make it to college and heaven. Donors to Seton are permitted to deduct contributions as provided in Section 170 of the IRS Code. Our EIN is 26-2782492.

Turn the minds and hearts of all associated with Seton Education Partners, Lord, toward Your Word as they strive to live out the gospel, as they strive to both bear and be witnesses of Your love and will.
Bestow on Seton's children and families, Your protection and care; that they may know Your name, feel Your presence, receive Your blessings and walk in faith.
