Ensuring a Strong Future for Catholic Education

The Msgr. Edward C. Dunn Foundation for Education is an Endowment Fund created in 1985 to support Catholic education at St. Peter’s School in Mansfield, Ohio. Its specific purpose is to generate significant financial resources for the school in its ongoing effort to promote and maintain this most important ministry of the Catholic Church.

Following the mission and ministry of the Catholic Church to answer the call of the Gospel message to teach. Inviting all to participate in the philanthropy of time, talent, and treasure. Together, responding in grateful recognition of our God-given gifts. Helping to ensure the gifts of Faith, Family, and Education for our children…today and tomorrow.

Our Goal

The long-term goal of the Foundation is simple. Provide sustainability and self-sufficiency for St. Peter’s School.

Our initial goal is to reach the $5 million in endowed funds to our General Fund. This would generate $200,000 annual to support school operations.

This will more than replace the current parish subsidy that St. Peter’s parishioners provide in support of the school system.

St. Peter’s School is one of the few parish operated Pre-K through Grade 12 school systems in the country.

The Board of Trustees is dedicated to fostering the continued success and enrichment of St. Peter’s School by providing an increasing the endowment of the Foundation.

Once the initial $5 million goal is met, we will continue to build the fund for the future.
