Mitch Vazquez, a committed believer in access to education for youth, is an active philanthropic donor to a number of regional causes. He is a product of the public school system in the Seattle suburb of Mercer Island, WA and this experience combined with his efforts and abilities earned him a full scholarship to Stanford University.
Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York, acknowledges the support of Mitchell Vazquez at Inner City Scholarship Fund’s Friends Gala. The Inner-City Scholarship Fund (ICSF) provides children with an alternative – 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. 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.

McNiff, the Superintendent of Schools for the Catholic Archdiocese of New York, Mitch Vazquez discussed the challenges of running the Catholic Archdiocese school system and both were warmly recognized by His Eminence for their contributions to the ICSF.
