You can also donate to one or all three of our Scholarship Funds. St. Philomena School has three established scholarships:

MARILYN BYERS gave decades of dedicated service to the St. Philomena School community and its students as a master teacher. When she retired, the Marilyn Byers Alumni Scholarship Fund was established in her honor to assist alumni families who have returned to St. Phil’s, this time as school parents.

ROBERT RUTH was a school parent, CYO coach, board member, parishioner, and husband of long-time St. Phil’s teacher, Mrs. Mary Ruth. After a short battle with cancer, Robert passed away six years ago. In his memory and in honor, the Robert Ruth Memorial Scholarship was established to assist student athletes in financial need.

GLORIA STRAUSS was a beloved St. Philomena student who passed away after a heroic battle with neuroblastoma cancer. The Gloria Strauss Memorial Scholarship assists students whose families are in need due to illness or other personal or financial challenges.

Please make a donation and help out our students and families who may need a little extra assistance. You can make your donation through the auction website https://stphil2023.maxgiving.bid. All scholarship donations are also tax deductible.
