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.

Given the recent success of the 2014 Gala and with combined donated funds from individuals, corporations, foundations, and earnings from invested funds, it is the goal of FACE to support over 700 students every school year.
