Sister Rebecca Berghoff Foundation

About the SRB Foundation

The Sister Rebecca Berghoff Foundation (SRB) was established in October 1989, by a group of volunteers who recognized the importance of Catholic education and the excellent job that St. Joseph/Marquette has done and continues to do in the Yakima Valley. This group of volunteers wanted to ensure a solid financial base so that future generations of Yakima families would have the opportunities to choose a Catholic school for their children.

The Sister Rebecca Berghoff Foundation is a private non-for-profit (501) (C) (3) organization, (tax id # 91-1466527) with the sole focus is the continuance of St. Joseph/Marquette Catholic School.
