Founded in late 2011, the Aim Higher Foundation is an independently operated 501c3 governed by a board of directors composed of corporate, civic and education leaders in the Twin Cities. The Aim Higher Foundation believes education is the key to the strength of our economy and the health of our community. Because of this and the excellence of Catholic schools, the Aim Higher Foundation provides student-based tuition assistance, so all families have access to the life-changing experience of a Catholic school education. Since its formation four years ago, the Aim Higher Foundation has committed more than $2.3 million to support scholarships for students in grades K-8 in 76 elementary schools. Annually, the foundation has supported more than 700 Aim Higher scholars. Of these students, more than 50 percent are students of color.
