BLOCS is committed to helping all children access a high quality, values based education.

History & Mission

Business Leadership Organized for Catholic Schools, BLOCS, is an independent charitable organization supported by companies, firms and foundations of all sizes in the five county Philadelphia region. Since 1980, BLOCS has invested in the lives of tens of thousands of children throughout the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, including some of the poorest neighborhoods in the City.

BLOCS is committed to giving children access to a high quality, values based education in Philadelphia area Catholic schools. From its inception in 1980 by a group of visionary business and civic leaders, BLOCS has been supported by a diverse group of individuals.

Children who attend grade school, high school or the schools of special education within the Archdiocese of Philadelphia are eligible for BLOCS Scholarships. Through its scholarships, BLOCS reaches more children in more communities than almost any other private education charity in our region.

During the 2010-2011 school year, BLOCS was able to grant partial tuition scholarships to more than 3000 students, raise millions of dollars in endowment funds for schools in our innovative Urban Endowment Initiative program, and provide best practices support to schools throughout the Philadelphia region.

With the support of its Board, friends, and donors, BLOCS endeavors to increase the number of scholarships distributed each year and help strengthen the schools for future generations and for the good of our region.
