Unrestricted Annual Fund Support

You can make your tax deductible gift online by clicking here. The Annual Fund is an important source of unrestricted gifts that help meet critical operating needs and allow Cathedral to continue its mission. As we are no longer supported by the Archdiocese, your gift to the Annual Fund is critical to sustaining our ability to make CHS accessible and affordable.

Our 2016-2017 goal is to raise $1,200,000 and to have 100% alumnae participation. Last year only 9.3% of Cathedral alumnae gave to the Annual Fund.  Help guarantee Cathedral’s legacy, part of your own legacy, to provide a vital and competitive educational alternative for many of New York City’s working class families. You will be providing the financial support Cathedral needs to survive and prosper.

Sr. Mary Raymond Legacy Society
Generous alumnae and friends who have included Cathedral High School in their estate plans are recognized with membership in the Legacy Society. Their foresight and belief in the future of Cathedral High School has helped to ensure that CHS will remain a unique place of opportunity for young women for generations to come. 
For many alumnae and friends, a charitable bequest is the easiest and best way to make a gift to Cathedral. You can name Cathedral High School as the beneficiary of a portion of your estate in your will, or as a beneficiary designation on your retirement plan, life insurance, etc. Giving through your estate plan enables you to make a gift that may not be possible now, yet may give you a great deal of satisfaction to know your future gift will live on. 
 
This, and other planned giving strategies such as trusts and annuities, are additional ways that you can support Cathedral High School and our mission of empowering young women.
The Named Scholarship Fund Program
Cathedral High School welcomes the establishment of named, permanently endowed scholarship funds in memory of or in honor of the individual(s) or family named – by providing an initial contribution of at least $10,000 and a long-term commitment for a permanently endowed scholarship of $100,000 or more.
Sponsor a Student 
Cathedral also provides the opportunity to directly support a current student in need by making a scholarship gift.  These gifts help many students year after year who would be unable to attend CHS without financial support.
