Ways You Can Help
Cathedral relies on the generous philanthropy of its supporters to make its mission possible. Below are several ways in which you can help support urban, Catholic education.
Adopt a Teacher
Our teachers lie at the heart of our students’ success. Cathedral has 28 teachers. The cost to employ them is more than $1.5 Million. Your support to adopt a teacher also gives them the tools and resources they need to be successful in the classroom: teaching supplies, technology, professional development, field learning experiences, and more.
$20,000 fully supports one teacher. This gift level includes meeting with the teacher and a year-end event together. A gift of any level supports the important work our teachers are doing in urban Catholic education. If you would like to adopt a teacher in a specific department or subject area, please let us know in the gift comments field of your online donation.
Adopt a Student
The average cost to educate each Cathedral scholar is $17,000. Tuition only covers a small portion of this cost, which also includes books, supplies, and food services. Each student receives philanthropy-based financial assistance which ensures that cost is not a barrier to a high quality education at Cathedral.
$17,000 fully supports one student. This gift level includes a letter from your student twice per year and a year-end event together. A gift of any level directly helps philanthropy-based assistance for Cathedral scholars. If you would like to adopt a specific student or at a specific grade level, please let us know in the gift comments field of your online donation.
Adopt a Team
Athletics play a major role in building character, teamwork, and confidence. Cathedral offers 20 sports teams including football, soccer, volleyball, cheerleading, indoor track, basketball, softball, baseball, and outdoor track. Most Cathedral scholars participate in athletics, which cost an average of $200,000 per year, including costs of equipment, uniforms, transportation, coaches, officiants, and field use and maintenance.
$20,000 adopts a varsity team. $10,000 adopts a JV, freshman, or middle school team. $5,000 supports athletics equipment. A gift of any amount will directly support athletics opportunities for Cathedral scholars. If you would like to adopt a specific team or sport, please let us know in the gift comments field of your online donation.
