Ways to Give

"Knowing as I do so well your heart's full desire to serve our Lord purely, I can say nothing to you - but to keep well to what you believe to be the grace of the moment...Only do your best as you always have done and leave the rest to our dear God." ~ St. Elizabeth Ann Seton

Thirty-One Women

Proverbs 31:31 “Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.”

The strength and dignity of a virtuous woman was exceedingly evident in the life of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton. Her honorable and humanitarian qualities have inspired countless individuals who are willing to serve others in society without personal gain. With these reasons in mind it is evident why the 31 Women scholarship is a perfect fit for Seton High School. This unique scholarship is made possible by the commitment of 30 women. Each one of these 30 women have been inspired by the mission of Seton High School and the idea of being part of giving one young woman the chance to attend Seton on a scholarship that covers 90% of a four-year tuition.  Seton High School’s 31 Women Scholarship is now heading into its fifth year.

Each group of Thirty-One Women:

  • consists of 30 women who give $31 each month for four years to cover the tuition and fees for one girl to attend Seton High School. 
  • will cover approximately 90% of the tuition and fees for all four years.
  • will include one young woman who will be chosen to become the Thirty-First Woman and is responsible for the remaining 10% of her tuition.  She will provide updates to her Thirty-One Women supporters throughout her Seton journey.

In addition to making this a wonderful high school experience for a deserving student, members of the Thirty-One Women community have benefitted from knowing each other and feeling connected to Seton through the support of the student.  The students enjoy writing letters throughout the year to let their supporters know how they are doing in school and in other activities and show their appreciation for the gift they have been given.

The Thirty-One Women, Class of 2021, will be our fifth class formed to support this program.  Our goal continues to be to assemble multiple groups of women so we can make this valuable educational experience available to many girls in all of our parishes and communities.  Each spring Seton hosts a luncheon and provides an opportunity to meet our scholarship recipient.
