Celebration of Light 2023 was our biggest yet!  

It was such a blessing to be together again in the Sheraton Grand ballroom. With your heart-led generosity, Fulcrum raised a record-shattering $3.3 million in support of local Catholic schools and students! Thank you for making a difference and changing so many lives. Fulcrum's mission would not be possible without incredible donors like you! 

Missed the Celebration of Light? 

There's still time to donate in support of local students and schools! Every dollar matters!

Check out the Celebration of 2023 digital program, featuring a message from our executive director and board chair, a tribute to Archbishop's Awardee Dick Abrams, and inspiring messages from our generous gala sponsors!


Fulcrum's mission to increase access to Catholic education would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors. We are fortunate to have long-standing partners within our community who understand the life-changing value of Catholic education. Thank you, Celebration of Light 2023 sponsors, for supporting Catholic schools in Western Washington!
