It is in the heart of the giver that the seeds of action take root and begin to grow.
Since its humble beginnings in 2011, Christ the King Catholic High School has been blessed by an abundance of generosity and a pay-it-forward mentality from donors which have allowed us to thrive by funding extraordinary opportunities benefitting all aspects of Crusader life. As we celebrate twelve years of Catholic education, I reflect on the many loyal contributors who helped us further our mission of empowering our Crusader students to believe sincerely, think critically, and serve others in the name of Christ the King.
The Crusader tradition has become one marked by a faithful heart, academic excellence, a love of learning, and dynamic opportunities for growth in mind, body, and spirit. Each year brings new opportunities to enrich our students' learning experience. Your support allows us to provide extraordinary experiences and programs for our three greatest assets - our students, our faculty, and our campus.
As I walk around the Christ the King campus each day, I am reminded of how very blessed I am to not only work here as director of advancement but how blessed my own children were to be part of such an extraordinary place, surrounded by people who work every day towards their success and well being. It is truly a privilege to witness this community's dedication and support and to see how their generosity empowers our mission to create leaders who will go out into this world armed to make a difference.
The Advancement Office offers a variety of ways for you to open your heart to help further our mission and to plant your own seeds of action. The Silver & Blue Annual Fund is one of our fundraising priorities. This annual initiative funds programs that are at the core of our mission - providing for student-led and student-centered programs, retaining and attracting excellent teachers through our teaching excellence award program, funding arts, athletics, and campus improvements. The Silver & Blue Celebration, our annual fundraising event held in the late winter/spring, typically funds a major campus improvement or special initiative. Our corporate sponsorship program allows businesses the opportunity to partner with us. Our volunteer organizations - the PTO, Athletic Association, and President's Advisory Council, engage in many activities that support our administration and enhance the Crusader experience.
You can also make a lasting impact on Christ the King through gifts to capital campaigns which fund long-term major campus improvements. Consider including Christ the King in your planned giving. Give a forever gift through the establishment of a named endowment or make a gift to the Ad Meliora Endowment which also funds campus improvements.
We invite you to join in our mission by supporting Christ the King today. Your generous gift plants seeds of action that provide extraordinary experiences and opportunities for the next generation of Crusaders who will go out and lead the world with a desire to achieve excellence and a faith-filled heart to serve.
