Thank you!

On Wednesday, June 6, 2018, Central Catholic celebrated our third annual Raider Day of Giving.

THANK YOU to everyone who gave. The participation went far beyond our expectations.

The number of people who joined together in this powerful, 24-hour online fundraising effort to raise support for the young men and women we serve surpassed our initial goal of 500 participants!

We were humbled by the support shown by alumni, current parents, CCHS faculty & staff, Board & Committee members, as well as friends of Central Catholic.

Thank you for your love and support of CCHS and our students!

What is 'the Raider Day of Giving?"

On June 6, Central Catholic alumni, parents, and friends will join together to raise support for the young men and women we serve. This Raider Day of Giving will be a powerful 24-hour online fundraising effort through social media to connect all our constituents who love and support the mission of Central Catholic High School.

Why do we do this?

Many secondary schools across the U.S. have successfully instituted DAY OF GIVING programs to augment their year-round fundraising efforts. These campaigns build excitement, pride and friendly competition among the various stakeholders who support their schools. Our Raider Day of Giving is a way to connect with current and potential donors, excite you about our mission and our efforts here on campus to make the Raider experience a memorable one.
