Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Catholic Education Foundation of Louisville has received a $1 million gift to help local students attend Catholic schools.

David Jones, the co-founder of Humana, and his wife Betty, are giving the money to the Catholic Education Foundation of Louisville. The money will provide financial assistance to families who can't afford the full cost of Catholic school tuition.

Louisville Archbishop Joseph Kurtz says the couple is 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.
