Ways to Support

Kids at school

Your gifts of time, talent and treasure keep FIRE's flame burning brightly.

Your support provides children with special needs the opportunity for an inclusive education at the Catholic schools they attend. Through fundraising and advocacy, FIRE plays a vital role in acquiring trained personnel, technology and special learning materials to meet unique learning needs. There are more schools, families and children who wait the spark of FIRE.

When you donate to FIRE, YOU make it possible for schools to:

  • Hire paraprofessionals who provide appropriate support to students
  • Hire special educators who guide instruction, so students meet goals
  • Acquire technology, curriculum, and adaptive equipment that enhance learning
  • Offer professional development and training so educators can address students’ unique challenges more effectively
  • Continue opening the doors of Catholic schools to new students with disabilities

Do you believe Catholic education is for children of ALL abilities? We need your support!
