Episode 12: Faith in the Future Foundation

Faith in the Future Celebrates its 5th Anniversary

FIF 5th Anniversary

In 2012 the Archdiocese of Philadelphia signed an historic management agreement with the Faith in the Future Foundation granting oversight of 17 Catholic High Schools and four schools of Special Education.  Archbishop Chaput’s bold move engaged the laity in this first of a kind partnership that captured the attention of the entire country.   This episode visits Faith in the Future 5 years after the signing of the agreement giving us an update on the progress, the challenges and the road ahead.  

This is a very special episode because it gives me the opportunity to introduce my listeners to the Foundation for which I serve as the Chief Development Officer. Today’s show will give you background on how Faith in the Future was founded, the basic principles of the management agreement and the progress we’ve made to serve Catholic Education in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.  For more information about Faith in the Future, please visit our publications page


About Faith in the Future

Faith in the FutureFounded in April 2012 as an independent not-for-profit organization, Faith in the Future grew out of the recommendations of the 2011 Blue Ribbon Commission to confront the challenges of Catholic education in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. As a result of its historic management agreement with the Archdiocese, Faith in the Future has strategic and operational control of 17 high schools and four schools of special education, and oversees the Office of Catholic Education to serve as its operational arm in support of the schools. Now, 5 years later, a renaissance in Catholic Education has blossomed in the Philadelphia Archdiocese. With a solid track record and an early renewal on their management agreement, Faith in the Future makes plans to continue to build on its success and provide a high quality Catholic Education to every child that desires it.
