Edmonds Family Makes $1 Million Gift to Fulcrum

January 3, 2024

Joe and Lucy Edmonds

Dear Friends of Fulcrum, 

Every day at Fulcrum, I am deeply touched by the kind, compassionate, and generous hearts of our supporters. The work we do here to support local Catholic schools and students would not be possible without you. 

Today, I am humbled and honored to be able to announce an incredible gift from Joe and Lucy Edmonds to the Fulcrum Foundation. Joe and Lucy have donated $1 million to be used over the next two years to support Fulcrum’s Tuition Assistance Grant Program. This life-changing gift will provide scholarships for more than 700 students over two years. 

The Edmonds are new donors to Fulcrum, but felt drawn to our mission to make Catholic education more accessible and affordable for the families who need it most. Joe, Lucy, and their four grown children all attended Catholic schools and understand the difference they can make in a young person’s life. Joe and Lucy are now giving back to the community through this selfless gift and they have instilled that same spirit of giving in their children.  

I cannot say thank you enough to the Edmonds family for their beautiful gift to Fulcrum and the students we serve. Thank you for being a shining light and for making an immeasurable impact on our Catholic school communities for years to come. 

With A Grateful Heart, 

Amy Hall 
Advancement Director
