The Lumen Christi fund was established in 1988 to help meet current and future educational needs in the Diocese of Green Bay.
Funding for Lumen Christi came from the $8 million raised in a diocesan-wide campaign. It was invested through two separate endowment funds — one for Catholic schools and the other a general fund — that are administered by the Catholic Foundation.
Each year Lumen Christi distributes:
- funds to support religious education in every parish — usually $750-$1,000 per year
- an annual per student contribution to every Catholic school
- tuition assistance and scholarships for the professional and academic development of educational leaders in our Catholic schools and religious education programs
