The mission of The PLEASE Foundation is to inspire at-risk students to a future of excellence through educational, spiritual, and social resources. The purpose of The PLEASE Foundation is to provide mentoring and scholarships for inner-city students to attend college preparatory Catholic Schools in New Orleans.
The PLEASE Foundation currently funds 38 at-risk students to attend 12 different Catholic Schools in New Orleans. The Foundation's current needs are funding for scholarships and the Student Support Services Program. This program provides mentoring, tutoring, books and supplies, uniforms, school lunch, transportation, counseling, ACT Testing and prep classes. The Foundation's ultimate goal is for all of our students to attend college with scholarships. The PLEASE Foundation students come from the poorest and most violent neighborhoods in our city. These scholarships and support services are necessary for each student to achieve to their greatest potential.
