About the Nazareth Guild

In 2010 Blase Cardinal Cupich and Don Herak gathered together interested and committed individuals who cared deeply about the future of Catholic schools in the Diocese of Spokane. Catholic schools in the Diocese of Spokane had reported budget deficits, as a result of declining enrollment and increasing operating costs. Nazareth Guild Board of Directors identified it was time for action and began its commitment to financially support the schools in our diocese.

Nazareth Guild seeks full enrollment for all schools, especially those serving the underserved and under-resourced, by offering tuition assistance grants to students who cannot afford the full cost of tuition. Nazareth Guild seeks to support the Catholic schools in eastern Washington in their efforts to offer an excellent academic education based in the Catholic tradition.

“As a graduate of Catholic schools, grammar through university, and a former teacher and high school president for almost twenty years, I have experienced first-hand the academic excellence, extensive extracurricular activities, and the disciplined learning that occurs each day. And this all happens within the context of the beauty and tradition of our Catholic faith. As the Church, we must do all we can to share this blessed opportunity with generations to come.”

– Most Reverend Thomas A. Daly
