Mitchell Vazquez, a committed believer in access to education for youth, is an active philanthropic donor to a number of regional causes. He recently attended Inner City Scholarship Fund’s Friends Gala where he expressed his concern about the challenges of running the Catholic Archdiocese school system.
The Inner-City Scholarship Fund (ICSF) provides children with an alternative that is scholarships and access to the schools associated with the Catholic Archdiocese of New York. ICSF exists to ensure that the gift of an excellent Catholic school education continues to be a viable option for current and future generations of students of all faiths. Mitchell Vazquez discussed about the issue along with Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York at the Friends Gala held in the city.
Nearly 70% of the ICSF students enrolled in Manhattan, the Bronx and Staten Island come from homes living at or below the federal poverty line. The average scholarship recipient's family income is approximately $24,000 per year and over half of the students come from single-parent households.
Mitch Vazquez is a product of public school system and realizes the problems of those parents who cannot give their child proper education. To know more about the other charities he supports log on to http://www.mitchellvazquez.com.
