In 1993, a group of local Catholics, came together to establish the Benton County Catholic School
Educational Trust. The purpose of this mission was to provide perpetual funding and financial support
to Catholic education in Benton County. We continue, with your support, to provide annual funding to
Sacred Heart of Jesus Academy, Benton County LifeTeen, and all of the CCD programs throughout
Benton County. Ideally, with your contributions and continued support, this Trust will keep on giving
Although the young population in Benton County is down from year’s past, I believe the need for a
quality Catholic education has never been greater. Having four children go through CCD, Edge Junior
High Ministry, and LifeTeen High School Ministry, I could not have imagined where they would be
without the teachers, volunteers and experiences provided by these groups.
We ask that you prayerfully consider contributing the Benton County Catholic School Educational Trust
so we can continue to help fund the education of young Catholics in our county. You may provide gifts
in honor as lasting memorial for friends or loved ones who have passed. Donors who contribute may
also be eligible for an annual tax deduction. All organizations, corporations, companies, groups or
individuals may contribute.
On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I would like to thank you for your past contributions and your future
