Tyler Morning Telegraph Message

For nearly four decades, the Foundation has worked to grow a stable funding base in support of scholarship aid, teaching excellence and the extraordinary education and faith formation provided to Catholic and non Catholic students of all ethnic backgrounds at these exemplary, nationally-recognized schools. Through the generosity of donors and careful stewardship of its permanent endowments, since 1986 the Tyler Catholic School Foundation has distributed nearly $4 million in earnings to students, programs and facilities. The board of directors and staff of the Tyler Catholic School Foundation take to heart the charge to build a permanent charitable endowment which will ensure the stability and excellence of St. Gregory Cathedral School and Bishop T.K. Gorman Regional Catholic School.

We welcome your inquiries and look forward to your partnership in this mission.
