The HALO Initiative for Catholic Education (HALO) is an independent 501 (c) 3
public charity.


We rely on your generous donations to help us support the Dallas area Catholic school system, and to provide access to more families who desire a Catholic education.


We are able to deliver big results even though our annual funding requirements and team are small. Working together, our collective impact will pay dividends for our Catholic school system for years to come.

The mission of the HALO Initiative is strongly aligned with the goals of our Foundation and other supporters to make a holistic Catholic education accessible for all. HALO creates system-level coordination by identifying current issues that need improvement, implementing proactive innovations and securing funding for the entire Catholic school system. This high-level support and strategy frees educators and clergy to target their time and resources on the students they serve – providing high-caliber education, inspiration, spiritual guidance and formation.
