Leading the Next Generation to Discover, Learn and Experience The Word
For over thirty years, Christ the King Cathedral School Foundation has advanced Catholic education and provided financial support. As our community continues to grow, this mission remains as important to our parish community today. We continue give as we did when the founding group of parents established it in 1986. Furthermore, the Foundation Board of Directors launched the first Friends of the Foundation annual membership drive fifteen years ago. We are happy to say it is still thriving today.
Where Does Foundation Funding Go?
The Foundation’s general endowment fund’s major source of growth is due to donations as well as investments. Christ the King receives a portion of the endowment fund’s income which it donates back to the school community on an annual basis. Foundation donations have assisted the school with many projects including cafeteria and kitchen renovations, improved technology, advertising campaigns, updating the front entryway to our private school, and financial aid funding via student scholarships.
