Tutoring grant

The Saigh Foundation recently presented the English Tutoring Project (ETP) with a $5,000 grant for its mission to provide English language skills for children at no charge to the families or schools served. ETP, founded in 1998 by 17 congregations of women religious, serves 116 students from 14 countries of origin in eight Catholic elementary schools in the Archdiocese of St. Louis. The foundation was created by Fred M. Saigh to serve as a legacy of the gifts he gave throughout his lifetime to the community of St. Louis. Saigh was the child of immigrants.
