The Catholic Foundation is proud to announce the 545 Fund, a campaign to raise resources for the Bishop’s Scholarship Fund in honor of Bishop Mark’s 5th anniversary. Most Reverend Mark J. Seitz, D.D. was installed the Bishop for the Diocese of El Paso on July 9, 2013. Give a Gift of 5 to the Bishop’s Scholarship Fund at and help transform a life! 
In honor of Bishop Mark's 5 years of service, here are 5 ways you can Pray, Serve, & Give! 1) Sign up for a recurring monthly gift of $5 for the Bishop’s Scholarship Fund, 2) devote 5 extra minutes of daily intentional prayer for our children, 3) give $500 annually for 5 years to provide additional funding for scholarships, 4) sign up to donate 5 hours of service at any of our Catholic schools, and 5) make an impactful contribution of $5,000 for 5 years to help grow the Bishop’s Scholarship Fund.

The Bishop’s Scholarship Fund provides scholarships for students enrolling in the 6th grade or above and are renewable for as long as the student attends an El Paso Catholic school and remains in good standing. The amount of individual Bishop’s Scholarship awards range from $500 to $6,000 annually. Our goal is to grow the Bishop’s Scholarship Fund to $500,000 to provide an annual distribution of $20,000 for students to attend Catholic school.

We know that education impacts lives, scholarship opportunities for Catholic schools are transforming lives. Visit to set up your donation or call the Catholic Foundation at 915.872.8412. Recurring gifts can be stopped at any time.
