Leading the Next Generation to Discover, Learn and Experience The Word
For almost 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 eleven years ago. We are happy to say it is still thriving today.
Where Does Foundation Funding Go?
The Foundation’s general endowment funds major source of growth is due to donations as well as investments. Christ the King receives a portion of the endowment fund’s income when it donates back to the community on an annual basis. Foundation donations have assisted the school with many projects including last year’s cafeteria and kitchen renovations, improving technology, advertising platforms, updating the front entryway to the private school, and funding for student scholarships.
