Our Lady of Talpa School’s mission to serve all students regardless of family income is something we cannot carry out alone. We depend on generous individuals, families, foundations, and business to ensure we can provide a quality, Catholic education for the 92% of our children who live at or below poverty level.
Without such individuals and groups – the devoted partners in our mission – our children would be deprived of the education necessary to break the cycle of poverty in which many of them live.
We are ever thankful for the countless people who have contributed to Our Lady of Talpa School through the years and who in doing so have given the priceless gift of education to students in need. We invite more individuals to stand with us as partners in our mission and to help provide an otherwise unimaginable future for children who simply need the chance to blossom.
