Welcome to FACE


Founded in 1978, FACE provides financial needs-based tuition grants to students who attend Catholic schools in the Oakland Diocese without regard to an applicant's religion, gender, ethnicity or citizenship.  The Diocese of Oakland includes 44 elementary and 9 secondary schools throughout Alameda and Contra Costa counties.

With combined donated funds from individuals, corporations, foundations, and earnings from invested funds, FACE was able to award for the 2013-14 academic year 684 grants including 341 high school and 343 elementary school awards representing 476 families.

FACE applications are distributed through the Schools in early January 2014 and are available on this website.
