The co-founder of Humana Inc. is giving $1 million to the Catholic Education Foundation of Louisville to help students attend catholic schools.
The gift from David A. Jones and his wife, Betty, will provide financial assistance to families who can't afford the full cost of catholic school tuition.
Louisville archbishop Joseph Kurtz says the couple has been among the most generous donors to the foundation, which started in 1996. Foundation president Richard Lechleiter says the gift will allow more families to get help with catholic school tuition. He says about 20,000 students attend catholic schools in Louisville.
The foundation says the funding of the gift will occur over a four year period.
