Other Opportunities for Support in the Diocese

Scholarship Granting Organization

The Scholarship Granting Organization of Northeast Indiana (SGONEI) was founded in 2011 to provide families with scholarships to attend the Catholic schools of the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend. Scholarships support students in Pre-K through high school.

Catholic Charities

Catholic Charities is the social service arm of the Church in our diocese. Every service we provide is aligned with the Church’s teaching that all life is sacred from conception to natural death. We help to alleviate poverty, provide healing for mind, body, and spirit, and ultimately aim to be a bridge for people seeking self-sufficiency.
