Hayden Catholic High School Foundation FAMILY SCHOLARSHIP FUND

Friends of Hayden Catholic High School are invited to honor loved ones, their entire family, or their graduating class by establishing an endowed Family Scholarship which will be managed by the Hayden Catholic High School Foundation.  The principal assets of the scholarship funds exist permanently and the investment income is used annually to provide financial assistance to families who demonstrate financial need.

A minimum investment of $10,000 is required to establish a Family Scholarship and donors have a period of time in order to complete their investment.  Donors receive letters of appreciation from the selected students on an annual basis.  An investment of $25,000 provides the donor the opportunity to establish selection criteria (parish, class, etc.) for the award.

Some examples of Family Scholarships are provided below:

The Sabatini Family Scholarship

The Sabatini Family has established a Scholarship/Financial Assistance Program through the Hayden Catholic High School Foundation.  Initial gifts to this fund were made in memory of the late Mrs. Alice Sabatini.  Distributions from this permanent gift are to be used to help families with financial need afford the cost of Catholic education at Hayden Catholic High School.   

The Jim Morrisey Family Scholarship

“Many men declare themselves to be of great virtue and noble honor.
But when a man walks in kindness, caring and justice,
Happy are his children who follow”.

In recognition of his lifetime commitment to Catholic education and his support of Hayden Catholic High School, the children of Vincent James “Jim” Morrisey, have provided for an endowed scholarship opportunity for Hayden students.  The Scholarship Program was introduced to Jim by his family and Hayden representatives during a brunch in Topeka on Sunday, January 30, 2000.  Mr. Morrisey and the Family Scholarship were introduced to the Hayden community during a Catholic Schools Week luncheon attended by Archbishop James P. Keleher the following week.  Mr. Morrisey passed away in 2006.
