For the Future of Catholic Schools

We are entrepreneurial philanthropists. Together with our partners, we help PK-12 Catholic schools thrive.

How Do We Do It?

The Healey Education Foundation partners with dioceses and fellow philanthropists who believe as we do in the value of Catholic schools. As an operational nonprofit, Healey provides resourceful strategies, training and coaching to dioceses and individual schools. Our partner schools are active participants, every step of the way, in taking charge of their own futures.

Our Path, Our Promise

The Healey Education Foundation grew from faith and business savvy. Robert T. Healey Sr. established the Foundation in 2004 to bring sound business principles to the challenges of revitalizing Catholic Schools. Since then, we've grown to serve more than 60 elementary and high schools across five dioceses in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Minnesota.

As business thinkers and change agents, we advocate for and advise on strategies with a strong record of success.

Our partner dioceses and schools have proven the value of top-down leadership, local control and empowered laity. They have embraced best practices in enrollment management and building a culture of philanthropy. They have reimagined and relaunched schools that are mission driven, financially accountable and committed to sustainable change.

When new challenges surface, we will continue to consider, refine and share new approaches. We won’t rest until our work, multiplied across schools, dioceses and regions, extends the numerous benefits of a Catholic education to as many children as possible.
