The Our Faith, Our Children, Our Future School Tuition Organization (STO) is a charitable organization representing all of the Catholic K-12 schools in the Archdiocese of Dubuque and St. Paul’s Lutheran School in Waverly. The STO receives voluntary cash contributions from Iowa taxpayers and allocates those funds in tuition assistance grants to Iowa school children, who in turn, use those grants to attend one of the schools represented by the STO. At least 90% of the money received by the STO is allocated to students through tuition assistance grants.
The STO offers tuition assistance to families based upon their identified financial need and the amount of money available in the program, as determined by an outside agency.
The STO has provided more than 22,000 grants exceeding $21.4 million. Each gift is an investment in the future of a child and helps families in need of tuition assistance afford the education of their choice.
Your donation to the Our Faith, Our Children, Our Future STO gives the gift of school choice to Iowa families. With this gift, families have the ability to choose the educational setting that best meets the needs of their children.
