Named Endowed Scholarships of $25,000 or more: Gifts given at this level establish a named endowed scholarship award in perpetuity.  These gifts may be pledged with the terms of the pledge set in according with the donor’s timetable. Once the gift amount reaches $25,000, the principle typically earns enough through investment income to award a meaningful scholarship every year thereafter.

• Renewable Named Annual Scholarships or $2,500 or more/year for four years: You can provide continuing support for a Central Catholic student starting their freshman year and continuing through graduation.  Donors make a four year commitment at $2,500 or more per years so that students (and their families) can develop a plan to finance their Central Catholic High School education from start to finish.
 

Tribute Gifts: Tribute gifts that honor or memorialize beloved friends and family are a meaningful way to support Central Catholic, affirming the priorities and values they embodied in life or recognizing character and achievements with respect and admiration, while benefiting our students.  To make a gift “in honor of” or “in memory of” make sure you complete that section of our giving form.
