*The mission of the Big Shoulders Fund is to provide support to the Catholic schools in the neediest areas of inner-city Chicago. Currently, they serve nearly 24,000 students in 93 inner-city schools. Since 1986, Big Shoulders has raised over $220 million to fund scholarships, operating grants, facility improvements, instructional equipment, and special education programs. The impact of these investments is remarkable; 97 percent of students attending Big Shoulders schools graduate from high school and 87 percent matriculate to college. Big Shoulders Fund is unique in that administrative expenses are supported by an endowment and other income which ensures all funds currently raised go toward programs that benefit the Big Shoulders Fund schools and the students they serve. More information about the Big Shoulders Fund, the Auxiliary Board, and additional volunteer opportunities can be found at www.bigshouldersfund.org.
