Ways to Give

24 Hours of Impact: Every Gift Counts


What is 'the Raider Day of Giving?'

On June 11, 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.
