bishop-sullivan1The McMahon Parater Scholarship Foundation is a non-profit charitable organization, duly organized and authorized under the laws of the State of Virginia and the Internal Revenue code.

Interest income from the endowment is used to support the operational priorities of tuition assistance, academic innovation and support for dedicated teachers.

The Foundation partners with CPAs and financial advisors to keep them informed about Virginia’s tax credit program, the Education Improvement Scholarship Tax Credit (EISTC) program, that meets their clients’ financial and philanthropic goals.  These relationships are vital to our mission.

The assets of the McMahon Parater Scholarship Foundation are owned and managed independently of the assets of the Catholic Diocese of Richmond.
