Mater Academy, Inc.
About the MAter Foundation - In case you aren't already aware, the Mater Academy Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focused on aiding economically disadvantaged students and families by encouraging philanthropy and teaching students to share and seek resources to benefit their community. Proceeds will support educational opportunities for students, teachers, and families in Mater communities. For the past four years, our fundraising efforts and this event in particular have been a huge success, allowing us to:
- Implement an Adopt-a-Family Project to aide needy Mater Families;
- Motivate teachers to introduce innovative methods in their classrooms by providing funds for grants;
- Enhance student potential by providing student scholarships for college and grants for summer enrichment experiences; and
- Fund academic field trips including college tours for high school sophomores and juniors, Close-Up Field Trips to our nation’s capital, academic achievement reward field trips to students who attained their academic goals. These travel experiences bring our mission of helping our students be college-bound and college-ready to fruition.
Future plans include further developing an alumni association while simultaneously cultivating the Mater presence in the post secondary landscape, wherein students will feel supported by their Mater family and in turn bring their new professional experiences back to Mater schools and Mater neighborhoods.
