Mission Statement

Seeds of Hope cultivates minds and hearts for Christ by striving to make a transformative Catholic education financially accessible to any family who seeks it.

Organization History

In the wake of St. John Paul II's visit to Colorado for World Youth Day in 1993, the Archdiocese of Denver (AoD) and several community leaders joined forces to create an organized, funded mechanism to support Catholic education in Denver. In 1996, this led to the formation of Seeds of Hope (SOH).

SOH focuses on providing tuition assistance to make Catholic education financially accessible to families at low-income AoD schools. All the assistance helps families access opportunity, stability, faith formation, and a quality education. When the schools receive the tuition assistance for the families, the funding also has the impact and benefit of helping support the schools.

In 2016, SOH expanded its mission beyond inner city schools so now any family who meets our income guidelines can apply for financial assistance, regardless of which of our 35 AoD K-8 schools they attend.

Since our start in 1996, SOH has distributed more than $35,000,000 in support; we will grant $1.9 million for the 2019-20 school year.

Inglebert is a proud husband and father; he and his wife have 4 little girls. When their youngest began preschool at a public school, the family was disappointed in the values that were taught there, even at such a young age. They wanted another option, but with Inglebert as the sole provider through his small business and the inconsistent income that brought, they didn't think the Catholic education they truly desired was possible.

But Seeds of Hope made it possible. The family applied and received a scholarship to St. Catherine of Siena Catholic School. Soon enough, all 3 of their oldest were attending and receiving assistance; their youngest will not be far behind.

Inglebert says that the education his girls receive at St. Catherine has helped him and his wife form their children not only academically, but also spiritually. He explains that their school is a true community and believes that, while there may be some good public schools, nothing can replace the teachings of Christ and His Church that his girls receive. The opportunity they have to pray and learn about God and His love is what truly sets Catholic education apart.
