Who We Are
The Sister Rebecca Berghoff Foundation (SRB) was established in October 1989, by a group of St Joseph Marquette parent volunteers. At the time, the bingo fundraiser that was providing tuition assistance to school families that were in need and that fundraiser was in jeopardy of being lost. In recognizing and experiencing the importance of a Catholic education and the excellent job that St. Joseph/Marquette has done and continues to do in the Yakima Valley, the separate non-profit corporation was formed, and the bingo fundraiser continued.
Since then, SRB has not only continued the bingo operation, but has expanded fundraising operations by giving supporters an opportunity to help financially and join in the mission…..”for the continuance of St. Joseph/Marquette Catholic School.”
In addition to the annual subsidy for tuition assistance of $350,000 per year, SRB also has helped with the capital necessary for improvements to the physical site to include the Mercy Building. And most recently to help with the capital campaign for remodeling and updating the school buildings.
The Sister Rebecca Berghoff Foundation is a private non-for-profit (501) (C) (3) organization, (tax id # 91-1466527) whose sole focus is the continuance of St. Joseph/Marquette Catholic School.
