Capital Gifts to Catholic High School

A capital gift is one that is designated for a specific project. Donors who wish to earmark their gifts toward personal interests and projects that are most meaningful to them can do so by choosing to direct their support toward a specific purpose that matches the needs and priorities of Catholic High School.

Success from Capital Gifts made recently on behalf of the Pete Boudreaux Track-Catholic High School Field initiative was a direct result of support toward continued facility improvements on the Catholic High School campus. Catholic High School students, faculty and staff have greatly benefited as the result of a capital gift to the School by parents, grandparents, alumni and friends. It is vitally important that our current families continue this tradition of giving toward maintaining an up-to-date campus for today’s students.

Capital gifts can be made to recognize a student, alumni, faculty/staff member, family or friend as a way to leave a legacy for future generations. Capital gifts are typically given in addition to an individual’s annual contribution to Catholic High School initiatives.

Ongoing Fundraising Initiatives

A major emphasis in preparing students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math is now in the forefront of secondary education to prepare for college credit and high-growth careers. As we focus on mission-based education for our students, CHS seeks to include Religion and Arts into STEM, as a focus for critical thinking and real-world solutions.

Funding is necessary for renovations of classrooms into high-tech STREAM Labs in the Brother Gordian Udinsky, SC Science Center. In addition to potentially earning college credit, the impact will transform into group learning in the areas of Pre-Engineering, Computer Science and Biomedicine, where students prepare and provide real-world solutions toward project-based learning that will lead to professional career tracts in these areas of curriculum.

Support is also requested toward fully funding the STREAM endowment fund at $40,000. Earnings from this endowment will annually provide the necessary resources and support needed for curriculum and instruction for these progressive programs for our faculty.

Recognition opportunities —

Naming recognition for the CHS STREAM program ……………………… $500,000
Naming recognition for individual STREAM Lab ………………………… $100,000

Over the past decade, critical needs have been addressed at CHS Grizzly Field for the function and safety of the CHS baseball program and its spectators. From recent field drainage, bullpen and dugout needs in 2015 to lights, press-box and restroom facilities stemming back to 2008, ongoing efforts continue to build on the functionality for student-athletes, coaches and fans through an enhanced experience to the ballpark.

CHS seeks gifts of support to address the next phase of enhancements to the Grizzly Field Baseball Initiative —
