Incarnate Word Academy Foundation

History and Purpose

The Incarnate Word Academy Foundation, the school’s endowment fund, was established in 1989 by the Sisters of the Incarnate Word and Blessed Sacrament. The Foundation’s purpose is to provide adequate funding for scholarships and educational development solely for Incarnate Word Academy in Corpus Christi, Texas in perpetuity.

Why Give to the IWA Foundation?
