Annual Fund

What is the Annual Fund?

The Annual Fund raises money each year through the following channels:

  • Direct mail campaigns
  • Phone-a-thon
  • Sponsorships
  • Events
  • Major Gifts / Personal Solicitations

Cumulatively, the money raised from the Annual Fund provides the critical dollars necessary to provide tuition assistance. In the current school year (2017-2018), 50% of the student body received financial aid.

What’s the difference between the Annual Fund and other requests for support?
We know you receive many different requests for funding for Catholic Central and through various means, which can be very confusing.  In a typical year, there are several requests for support that differ from the Annual Fund:

  • Athletic Boosters, Band Boosters, and Choir Boosters 
    All three Booster Clubs are run by parents and community volunteers to raise money to directly support the needs of the specific program.
  • The Foundation for Catholic Secondary Education (FCSE)
    While the FCSE used to operate independently of Catholic Central High School, it will begin functioning in concert with the school’s Advancement strategy beginning in 2018. The Foundation contains permanent endowment funds and seeks additional planned and estate gifts, which are then dispersed to Catholic Central High School’s operations.

What about The Greatest Gift campaign?

The Greatest Gift is a capital campaign, making it an exciting outlier.  The Greatest Gift is a historic $10 million campaign to renovate, reconfigure, and expand our educational facilities and invest in our students, staff, and teachers.   We intend to conclude our fundraising goals ($10M & 1,000 participants) for The Greatest Gift by June 30, 2018.  You can learn more about the campaign by visiting

Why is the Annual Fund so important?
The Annual Fund helps to educate and evangelize students through the growing need for tuition assistance. Without your support every year, we are unable to give half our families the help they need to attend Catholic Central High School.

We exist, as a school, to honor, serve, strive, lead, wonder… and above all, love. We challenge students to know God, love God. We challenge students to seek knowledge and truth. Our students are challenged to respect the dignity of each and every person they come into contact with.

CC offers more than a combination of faith and excellence in academics. We develop thought leaders who bring a unique sense of integrity, hard work and ethics to the workplace, home, church and community.

Thank you for your commitment to Catholic Central for the Annual Fund! We are eternally grateful for you!
