Tuition Assistance

FACE - Family Aid - Catholic Education

FACE provides need-based tuition grants to students who attend Catholic schools in the Diocese of Oakland.

FACE was founded in 1978 and helps students regardless of religion, gender, ethnicity or citizenship.  We hope to support over 700 students every school year.  The recent success of our annual Gala and donated funds increases the number of grants given each year.

The Diocese of Oakland includes 39 elementary and 8 secondary Catholic schools throughout the East Bay.

The BASIC Fund


The BASIC Fund provides scholarships to thousands of students each year, and we've supported more than 23,000 students since we started in 1998. Our scholarships are awarded first-come first-served on the basis of financial need. The awards are based on household size and income, covering anywhere from 25-50% of a school’s tuition, up to $2,000 per student per year.
