Your Generosity Makes a Difference
The Cathedral Fund is the centerpiece of the school’s annual fundraising efforts. It represents the second largest source of unrestricted operating funds after tuition. Your support will make a lasting impact for our students and their families.
The Cathedral Fund
Providing approximately $500,000 each year towards Cathedral’s annual operating budget, Cathedral Fund dollars are unrestricted and may be put towards the school’s greatest needs. They allow the school to support programs that make Cathedral unique—the unrivaled academic programs, the wide variety of creative arts, service learning, extracurricular and co-curricular athletics and activities, teacher development, classroom enrichment, and financial aid to students with demonstrated need.
Each and every gift makes a difference in the school’s ability to fulfill its mission and provide an excellent, Christ-centered education.
Why doesn’t tuition cover the full cost of school operations?
Revenue from tuition only covers approximately 50% of the total annual operating expenses. In an effort to keep our school affordable and accessible, Cathedral raises additional revenue through annual giving campaigns and fundraisers. The Cathedral Fund is a critical component of Cathedral’s annual revenue.
How are Cathedral Fund dollars used?
Cathedral Fund revenue touches every student, supporting the hiring and retention of outstanding faculty members, providing resources to enhance academic and extracurricular programs, allowing the school to maintain and improve its facilities, and offering financial aid to students who otherwise would not have the means to attend Cathedral.
Does the timing of my gift make a difference?
Cathedral gratefully accepts gifts throughout the year and records those gifts in the fiscal year in which they are received. Cathedral’s fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30.
