Mother Cabrini based her work on an “education of the heart”; promoting Gospel values, critical thinking and openness towards others. Through this initiative and all of our Foundation programs the Cabrini Mission Foundation continues to carry Mother Cabrini’s legacy forward.
Mother Cabrini and the Missionary Sisters opened a number schools and provided educational opportunities to children across New York for over 100 years. While the actual schools have since closed, to continue this education ministry in New York, our Foundation continues to provide needed funds to help at-risk students receive a faith-based education.
We are pleased to announce the 2021-2022 school year Mother Cabrini Scholarship awarded academic institutions.
St. Catharine Academy, in the Bronx, New York, offers an all-girls program where the students are prepared for college success, leadership and engagement in the world community, the Foundation’s support of St. Catharine’s will provide tuition assistance to a number of students during the current academic year.
The De La Salle School, in Freeport, New York, provides economically disadvantaged young men with a Catholic education grade 5 through 8. The Foundation’s support will offer their students and recent graduates’ programs to ensure they have the tools needed to excel during and following their time at the middle school.
The Kennedy Children’s Center, in Manhattan, New York, with its high-quality educational services for young children with developmental delays will create a custom-designed sensory garden, which will act as a safe space for the preschoolers, staff and the families to engage in developmentally appropriate learning to build social-emotional skills.
The Foundation is proud to honor the work of Mother Cabrini as well as all of the Missionary Sisters who have and continue to serve as educators – this truly is a life project for the present time and for the future.
