What is “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. Our goal is 500 gifts (participants) in 24 hours!  Help CCHS reach this goal!

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.

How can you help spread the word?

Thanks for supporting CCHS! On this page, you’ll find sample social media posts, emails, and graphics that you can use to raise awareness for Raider Day of Giving and to share that you gave. Feel free to use our samples as-is or make them your own. Tell your friends you support students' dreams by helping CCHS reach its goal of 500 gifts (participants) in 24 hours. #GivetoCCHS, www.centralcatholic.net/givetocchs
