Tuition Assistance

Access + Opportunity

Support the next generation of creative leaders who help shape a brighter future for our world.

Thanks to the generosity of our community, Carondelet provides 41% of students with tuition assistance support. Our priority is to make sure every family, regardless of financial circumstances, has access to quality education and that aspiring young women develop the skills, knowledge, and confidence to advance transformative change.

In these times of economic uncertainty, need is greater than ever for many students.

Creating an endowment fund provides critical support for students who otherwise could not attend Carondelet. Your gift makes a direct impact, enriching students’ learning experiences and inspiring them to make powerful contributions to society.

Named Annual Tuition Assistance Funds

Annual tuition assistance funds provide immediate support to students with the most pressing needs in a given year. These funds, spent down each year, are essential for continuing and prospective students who urgently need financial aid in order to enroll and thrive at Carondelet.

  • Gifts of $5,000+ are eligible to be named and awarded in full for the academic year.
  • The fund is viable for as long as annual contributions are made (multi-year pledges are encouraged) and need not be gifted consecutively to remain active.
  • The tuition assistance fund can be named in honor of an individual, family, organization, or even a faculty member, pending approval by school leadership.
  • Unrestricted tuition assistance gifts enable Carondelet to provide aid to as many deserving students as possible.
  • Awarding is administered by Carondelet based on financial and merit qualifications.
  • Donors are recognized annually on campus and in Many the Gifts.

Named Endowed Tuition Assistance Funds

Endowed funds create a legacy that will exist in perpetuity to help generations of talented students. Endowed tuition assistance funds may be created through a variety of giving options, either during your lifetime or at the time of your passing. During your lifetime, you may fund an endowment with cash, securities, real estate, or a life-income gift. You may also create an endowed tuition assistance fund through a will/living trust bequest or via a retirement plan/insurance policy beneficiary designation.

  • A gift of at least $50,000 establishes a named tuition assistance fund that is invested in its entirety and grants awards from interest earned. Donors have five years to reach the minimum fund balance of $50,000 to begin awarding aid.
  • The fund can be named in honor of an individual, family, organization, or even a faculty member, pending approval by school leadership.
  • Donors are recognized on campus and in Many the Gifts, and receive an annual endowment report on fund performance and aid awarding, detailing the impact of their gifts.

Carondelet is a wellspring of talent and personal excellence in the East Bay Area. Tuition assistance enables us to bring the brightest students from around the region to learn, serve, and contribute to the benefit of our community and world.

Financial aid support has a demonstrated impact on student retention, academic achievement, and college and career success. Carondelet graduates are trained to cultivate intellectual curiosity, risk-taking, collaboration, innovation, compassion, and integrity, and they are highly sought after by colleges and into their professional experience.
