Cristo Rey Jesuit High School welcomes planned gifts in the form of bequests, life insurance, charitable gift annuities, life estates, charitable remainder trusts, an IRA, 401(k), or 403(b) plan. Making a bequest or any other type of planned gift may generate tax benefits to the donor, provide long-term support for the school, and entitle the donor to membership in Cristo Rey Chicago’s Cristeros Society. Please contact Morgan Collier at 773-890-6818 to make special arrangements for these types of gifts.

Matching Gifts

Check with the human resources office at your place of employment for a matching gift form, and enclose it with your contribution.

In Honor or Memory of

Many of our friends have chosen to make gifts to Cristo Rey Jesuit High "In Honor of" or "In Memory of" a loved one, an event, or an individual. These special gifts are a meaningful way to remember someone’s birthday, anniversary, or other special occasion. We have even had couples direct their wedding guests to give directly to Cristo Rey.

Friends have also chosen to give gifts and/or designate Cristo Rey as the recipient of Memorial Gifts upon the death of a loved one.

If you are interested in giving a gift in honor of or in memory of a loved one, you can make your one-time gift on our donation page. Please indicate the reason for your gift in the “In Honor/Memory of” section at the bottom. Also, please let us know if you would like us to let someone know about your gift by providing us with his/her address. If you would like more information about how to encourage others to give on behalf of your loved one or a special occasion, please contact Laura Aguilar, Advancement Coordinator, at laguilar@cristorey.net or at 773-890-6844.

Giving Opportunities

Annual Fund

The Annual Fund supports all aspects of our students’ experience. Your support helps provide students with an excellent education and access to new opportunities.

Capital Improvement Fund

An investment in our facilities helps us to provide the best education possible to our students. Help us maintain our classrooms, purchase books, and continue offering up-to-date technology to all of our students.

Scholarship & Financial Aid

Through CWSP, students earn approximately 70% of their tuition. But there still remains $2,950 that families are asked to contribute toward tuition. The majority of our families are not able to pay this full amount. We invite you to give to our scholarship/financial aid fund and help to provide tuition assistance to our families.

Non-Profit Jobs Fund

The Non-Profit Jobs Fund was established to provide tuition for students who work at non-profit organizations through CWSP.

Cristo Rey absorbs the potential tuition income that these students could be making at a for-profit corporation as a part of our commitment to our community.

Our goal is to find funding for six non-profit job teams so that our school can continue to send students to support the work of these important organizations.

Naming Opportunities

During the Chapel of the Sacred Heart renovation in 2011, Cristo Rey commissioned handcrafted Stations of the Cross by local artisans at Daprato Rigali. The underwriting of the stations by generous benefactors will help us raise $140,000 to support the maintenance of our chapel and school facility. Each station is $10,000 and there are still opportunities to contribute to this special campaign.
