Thanks a Million! the 2016 Cathedral Fund Dinner saw approximately 400 individuals come together in support of our students and the life-transforming work we are doing here at Cathedral. At the culmination of the evening, we were able to celebrate by announcing $1,083,855.76 in gifts and pledges to the Cathedral Fund! THANK YOU!

As part of our efforts to streamline events/fundraising going forth, Cathedral is hosting the annual Cathedral Fund Dinner to kick-off our Cathedral Fund. With our fiscal year running July 1st- June 30th, this dinner will be the main catalyst for new or increased donations before the end of the calendar year. This dinner will be a great opportunity to mingle with parents, alumni and general supporters of Cathedral High School while learning more about the school and our mission, which is to make sure a Cathedral education is available to all deserving students—regardless of their financial status.

For the 2015-16 fiscal year, Cathedral has awarded over $2.6 million in tuition assistance and scholarships to over 44% of our students. In addition to tuition assistance, the Cathedral Fund supports a "Family of Funds" within the operating budget of the school—faculty, technology, athletics, arts, facilities, spirituality and service, academics, and wherever Cathedral needs support the most.
