Supporting Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School & Academy
Thank you for considering a donation to Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School & Academy. Our students, teachers, and entire community benefit from your generosity and cannot continue to fulfill our mission without the continued support of donors like you!
While there are countless ways to support the school, the most common avenues are outlined below. If you are interested in exploring other opportunities for support, please contact Kevin Mullan, Vice President of Advancement, at 419-693-0465 x216 to discuss your ideas and interests.
Just as our alumni, past parents, and faculty, which make up our "Cardinal Family" layed a foundation which we continue to build upon today, the Cardinal Family Fund serves as a foundation for everything that we do to serve the students and families that call Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School & Academy home today and tomorrow. Funds from the Cardinal Family Fund are used for tuition assistance, and help us remain competitive in our religious formation, academics, athletics, financial aid, and extra curricular activities.
In addition to alumni donations, Cardinal Stritch conducts various fundraising events to support the Cardinal Family Fund. Each Spring, Stritch invites alumni, parents and benefactors to attend the Red & Black Gala (formerly Champagne & Steak). This event raises nearly $100,000 to support scholarships, financial aid, teachers salaries, and all the little things that make a big difference at Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School & Academy.
Furthermore, alumni and supporters can expect to get a phone call from students, teachers, or former classmates, as part of our Phonathon call nights.
If you have questions about the Cardinal Family Fund, or how you can support the schools mission with a donation to the Fund, please contact Kevin Mullan, Associate Head of School for Advancement & Strategy, at 419-693-0465 x216.
Attending a Catholic school is a dream come true for all of our students. But for many families, the financial strain that tuition can cause can sometimes be too much. In order to attend Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School & Academy, nearly 80% of our students use some sort of financial aid. Without this support, a Cardinal Stritch education would not be possible for many of our students and families.
Starting a scholarship in honor of a friend or loved one who has passed away is a great way to remember the impact that individual had on the school and community.
In order to start a scholarship, we ask for a minimum of $5,000 up front and a financial plan to keep the scholarship running as long as possible.
If you are interested in starting a scholarship, please contact Kevin Mullan, Associate Head of School for Advancement & Strategy at email@example.com or call 419-693-0465 ext. 216.

Whenever possible, Cardinal Stritch will notify the family of the individual for whom a donation was made in memory of.
Each Fall, in conjunction with the Party in the Parking Lot and class reunions, Stritch hosts the Alumni Memorial Mass. This mass celebrates the lives of the members of the Cardinal Family who have passed away, with special rememberence for the alumni who have passed within the last year.

Started in 2015, the Strengthening Our Roots Capital Campaign is a $1.5 million campaign to make neccessary improvements to our roof, install a new boiler system (completed in June 2016), establish an endowment fund to support the school's ongoing operations, and reduce our debt to the Diocese of Toledo.Started in 2015, the Strengthening Our Roots Capital Campaign is a $1.5 million campaign to make neccessary improvements to our roof, install a new boiler system (completed in June 2016), establish an endowment fund to support the school's ongoing operations, and reduce our debt to the Diocese of Toledo.
In December 2016, Stritch announced the successful completion of this capital campaign. Cardinal Stritch is grateful for all donors who supported this campaign. Today, a donor wall near the front entrance of campus recognizes the generous donors who gave at a leadership level to support this capital campaign.
