BFI sponsors education, healthcare, and sustaining enterprise in this very challenged African country. For more information about them or to add a personal donation, visit

Going Deeper

Good News for Going Deeper and Beyond, 2014!

We did it! We, that is, the members of this Catholic Community - students, residents, young adults. alumni - as well as supporters from beyond the community achieved goal #1 of the “Going Deeper and Beyond” campaign : $87,000 needed to meet the 2013-2014 budget in support of the wonderful programs and services available at the Newman Catholic Community at UCSD. Thank you for sharing your time, talent and treasure in support of this ministry!

There has also been significant progress made on Goal #2: raising awareness of the need for continued support and instilling a sense of stewardship in the community. In the coming weeks you will hear more about those initiatives and in particular about a major social and fun event, the Newman Gala, which will be held on May 10, 2014 here in Roetter Hall.
