Our Mission

To provide children with special needs the opportunity for an inclusive Catholic education in their home parish schools and diocesan high schools.


Our Story

The FIRE Foundation was founded in 1996 by parents who shared a dream: for their children with special needs to attend Catholic schools with their siblings and friends. Since then, nearly $5 million have been raised and thousands of children have benefited from the blessings that inclusive education provides. In the 2019-20 academic year, with support from generous donors, FIRE is granting $520,000 to 14 schools. FIRE grants enhance staffing and resources and create learning environments where children of all abilities grow together – academically, spiritually and socially.
