Catholic Endowment for Educational Development (CEED)

Ceed logo

The Catholic Endowment for Educational Development (CEED) Fund was established to primarily benefit Washington County through grants to the John F. Kennedy Catholic School (JFK) and the Total Catholic Education (TCE) program at Immaculate Conception Church, both currently located in Washington, PA.

Paul and Shelley Songer wanted to ensure that the quality Catholic education that area children are currently receiving at JFK and through the TCE of Immaculate Conception Church, will be available to future generations. As a result, they initiated the CEED in the hopes that others, who share this goal, will also contribute to the fund.

The specific uses of the annual grants awarded from the CEED shall be determined by a CEED Board of Directors which shall be comprised of representatives from both JFK and TCE. Eligible uses of the grants shall be:

  • scholarships at JFK
  • operating expenses at JFK
  • educational materials at JFK
  • educational materials for TCE
  • building enhancements utilized by both JFK and TCE
