Leading the Next Generation to Discover, Learn and Experience The Word
For over thirty-five 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 more than 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.
2022 Friends of the Foundation Gala
For the past several years, Christ the King School Foundation has held an annual membership drive, the Friends of the Foundation Appeal, to raise funds for the Foundation’s general endowment fund. The Foundation also celebrates our donors and the Foundation’s mission to promote and support Catholic education at CTK by hosting the annual Friends of the Foundation Dinner Gala.
This year’s Friends of the Foundation Gala is scheduled for Saturday, April 23, 2022. The School Foundation continues to fulfill its mission of advocating for Catholic education at Christ the King Schools and invites you to support this year’s Gala by becoming a Friend of the Foundation by donating at one of our Friends gifting levels. Gifting levels start at $150 and all include two ticket reservations for this year’s Gala. Donate at the “Alumni” level ($500 or higher donation) and reserve an entire table for eight (8)! A sponsorship donation can be obtained with a $750 gift that also includes a table for eight (8) at the event as well as name recognition at the event.
This year’s Gala fun includes a social time with a silent auction featuring class baskets followed by a wonderful dinner, a live auction including sports memorabilia, a private event with Bishop Robert Coerver, artwork by local artists, jewelry and more! Continue the fun with a dance featuring live music provided by local band, Blackwater Draw.
Donations and ticket reservations can be made online by visiting bit.ly/FriendsGala22Tickets. Please make your gift no later than Wednesday, April 13, 2022 to be included in the fun!
2022-2023 Foundation Scholarships: Helping to Build Success for Christ the King Students
With your donations, the Foundation Board is once again able to award scholarship dollars from endowed funds. These funds help families to pay tuition for the upcoming school year. Several endowment funds, the Mary Ann Mehta Memorial Endowed Scholarship Fund, the Buescher Family Scholarship Fund and the Wanjura Family Scholarship will provide full tuition to three CTKC School students. Additionally, partial scholarships for tuition assistance will be awarded from 25 other named endowment funds. During the 2021-2022 school year, the Foundation awarded over $50,000 to 27 students. The scholarship applications for the 2022-2023 school year will be available by mid-April 2022.
