May 3, 2016 – The Faith In Our Future Trustees approved a challenge grant of up to $250,000 to Messmer Schools, earmarked for support of a current campaign which is underway to upgrade the St. Rose Elementary School. This grant from the Trust will match dollar-for-dollar donor funds which are received for the project. Many of the students served by St. Rose come from impoverished families, and the school is seeking to enhance the quality of student education – particularly through improved literacy growth and introductory STEM programming. In addition to upgrading academics, the funds raised will strengthen St. Rose’s Catholic identity by, among other things, committing space to a dedicated on-site chapel.
The Faith In Our Future Trust is a 501(c)(3) charitable trust, funded by gifts from parishioners throughout the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. All grants from the Trust are restricted to providing support for Catholic Education and Faith Formation.
