HOW ¡VIVA! HELPS
¡VIVA! is Cristo Rey’s premier fundraising event, supporting this mission and the young men and women we educate and empower. With support from more than 500 Chicago business, civic, and philanthropic leaders, ¡VIVA! is a vital component of our Annual Fund, which ensures that Cristo Rey’s impact is continuous and consistent. The Annual Fund supports all aspects of our students’ experience. Your support helps provide students with an excellent education and access to new opportunities.
Since 1998, ¡VIVA! has cumulatively raised more than $6 million for Cristo Rey and our students’ education. Your sponsorship helps provide operating support and necessary financial assistance for current Cristo Rey students. In addition to sponsors, event underwriters can help cover ¡VIVA! expenses with fully tax-deductible support ensuring that all funds raised through ¡VIVA! directly benefit students.
If you have questions about sponsorship and underwriting opportunities, please contact Taylor Sticha, Manager of Corporate Engagement.
