Since 1918, Cathedral High School has been fulfilling her mission of providing to a diverse group of students opportunities for spiritual, intellectual, social, emotional and physical growth through service and academic excellence. Our vision is to prepare students to serve and lead.
The Office of Advancement promotes ("advances") the mission of Cathedral High School by generating financial support, promoting the school, and cultivating lifetime connections among Cathedral's various constituents, as outlined below.
For 90 years, alumni, parents, and friends have responded generously to the various fundraising programs at Cathedral. Our fundraising is especially important because the high school is a private institution and does not receive general public funding or archdiocesan subsidies. Tuition alone does not cover the cost of operating Cathedral High School each year.
There are three primary areas in which you can financially support Cathedral:
- Annual Giving: Your gift to the Cathedral Fund and/or your support of events fundraisers will help provide support for the four cornerstones of Cathedral - diversity, affordability, faculty and facilities - on an annual basis. To read more about the importance of your annual gift, click here.
- Planned Giving: Planned gifts of various types - bequests, annuities, trusts, life insurance, etc. - provide the greatest opportunity for significant endowment growth, which will support the four cornerstones forever.
- Capital Projects: Gifts to capital projects help provide major facility renovations and/or expansions. Previous capital giving has resulted in facilities such as the Robert V. Welch Student Activity Center, the Student Life Center, the renovation and expansion of Loretto Hall and, most recently, the Butler Family Theatre Annex.
Cathedral turns to her alumni, parents, and friends whose loyalty and generosity already have helped to achieve many goals. With your continued support, we can meet tomorrow's challenges and strengthen our educational program, faculty, and student body.
