Our Mission

Saint Anthony Friends for Education
The Saint Anthony Friends for Education (SAFE) is committed to ensuring that children throughout greater Fort Lauderdale continue to receive the highest levels of academic, moral and spiritual formation regardless of their families’ ability to pay. Our mission is to keep tuition affordable while providing financial assistance to those in need. Because tuition alone does not cover the cost of educating a child, SAFE helps bridge the gap by providing teacher salary enhancements and funding critical educational projects.  The annual Gentlemen's Dinner is our biggest fundraiser every year.
