As part of its rich tradition of supporting educational institutions, the Cafaro Foundation announces a major gift to John F. Kennedy Catholic School in Warren, Ohio. The Foundation Trustees are happy to award $400,000 to assist the school in upgrading its athletic facilities. “We have always been committed to helping the school succeed in its mission to provide a well-rounded experience for students” said Cafaro Foundation Trustee, William A. Cafaro. “This donation will allow the administration to concentrate its financial resources on instructional needs and still be able to make essential improvements to its physical campus.”
This is just the latest in a series of gifts the Cafaro Foundation has made to John F. Kennedy Catholic School in recent years. As school President Joseph Kenneally noted, “The support of the Cafaro foundation has allowed John F. Kennedy Catholic School the opportunity to thrive and expand our facilities. Through their generosity, we have been able to make many needed improvements to our high school campus to continue to educate students in Courage, Integrity, and Dedication.”
