Women's Education Alliance (WEA) assists in the education and formation of qualified Pre-K through 8th grade students by providing scholarships to Catholic Community Schools serving economically disadvantaged families in Baltimore City. In addition to a quality academic education, WEA also provides school support services that enhance each student's total learning experience on a cultural, spiritual, physical and social level.
Our Community Schools
Our FAITHFUL WEA supporters, have continued to shower our children and schools with the many ingredients necessary to provide an academic and transformational educational experience that will move our students on the path to successful futures which will improve not only lives but communities and neighborhoods in Baltimore City.
Through the generous support of so many WEA women and men providing funds for scholarships, school supplies, playgrounds, technology, and so much more, WEA and YOU have been able to make a difference in the life of a child.
Years Serving communities
In March of 2012, a strong leadership team of 20 women forged a new path to expand women’s involvement in this initiative. They came together in workshops to create a new organizational structure and to clearly define the Women’s Education Alliance.
The beneficiaries of WEA scholarships are economically challenged Baltimore families who want their children to receive an academically excellent education and character formation that our four Catholic community schools provide. Success stories abound.
When you make a difference in a child’s life you also make a difference in your life…a most wonderful win-win! One of WEA’s chief aims is to provide an avenue for anyone who wants to get involved with our initiatives. Here are three major opportunities for you to make a difference:
Sponsor a child
Scholarship Preservation Program (SPP) – a priceless gift, this path allows the donor to select one of the specified scholarship levels and commit to this amount annually for a period of five years. A child is assigned to the donor.
One Time Gift (OTS) – this path allows the donor to select one of the specified scholarship levels or to donate an amount of your choice towards a scholarship.
This path shows the various services needed by our schools. Learn here to see how this type of support enhances a child’s overall educational experience.
