CISE – Weekend Food for Kids Program
For many Catholic Inner-city School students in Cincinnati, the food they receive in school on Friday is their last meal of the week. YOU CAN HELP! Just $14 a month will provide weekend food for a child so he or she can come to school on Monday, nourished and ready to learn.  More

Our Mission
CISE works to transform the lives of urban children by providing access to a strong Catholic education at designated inner-city schools and Catholic high schools. Gospel values are taught in an environment of respect, safety and discipline. CISE works with the schools to promote excellence through collaboration and accountability.

Our Story
In 1980, Catholic Inner-city Schools Education Fund (CISE) was established to help combat poverty in Cincinnati’s inner-city neighborhoods. Catholic schools had educated generations of immigrants and helped get them on the road to prosperity and full participation in  American society. CISE was founded to give all children, regardless of their religious backgrounds and economic circumstances, the opportunity to receive a quality education at a neighborhood Catholic school.

Today
Nearly 2,000 students are benefitting from the generosity of CISE donors. There are 1,800 students receiving a quality education in the eight CISE elementary schools. In addition, there are nearly 200 CISE school graduates attending Catholic high schools with the help of the CISE High School Grant Program.
