Foundation Announces Significant Permanent Endowment Gift


(LOUISVILLE, Ky.) – The Catholic Education Foundation of Louisville recently announced that a significant gift to its permanent endowment was made by Mrs. Betty Schutte in memory of her late husband, Joe, who passed away in 2009.  The new fund, to be named The H. Joseph Schutte Memorial Scholarship Fund, will provide financial assistance in perpetuity to families who cannot afford the full cost of Catholic elementary schools in the Archdiocese of Louisville.  The amount of the gift was not disclosed.

Mrs. Schutte and her late husband educated their children in Louisville’s Catholic schools.  Betty, a long-time member of St. Margaret Mary parish, wanted to show her gratitude for Catholic education and allow others to share in that experience who may not otherwise be able to do so.

Betty remarked, “Catholic education was always a priority in the Schutte family, and Joe and I made sure that it was meaningful to our children and grandchildren.  Looking back, it is obvious that this pathway enabled our family to be productive and successful in our lives.  Now it is time for me to share this same gift with others who want a Catholic education but can’t afford it.”

Joe Schutte, who was raised in Louisville, graduated from Flaget High School and later earned his degree from the University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy in 1956.  After working for Eli Lilly and Company early in his career, Jo ...
