We are pleased to announce that we have secured gifts for The Campaign for Benedictine totaling:

$14,629,500

The Campaign for Benedictine will preserve the founding traditions of the school, strengthen Catholic education, and place Benedictine on a growth trajectory.

The $20 million goal is the most ambitious fund-raising effort that Benedictine has ever undertaken.  

The campaign has three major objectives:

  • Build a best-in-class multi-purpose gymnasium that will offer seating for 2,000 fans, an athletic Hall of Fame and a military Hall of Valor to honor those Cadets who have served.  
  • Enhance professional development opportunities so that our great teachers may hone current skills or acquire new ones.
  • Increase the endowment that funds our generous scholarship program to make the Benedictine experience more affordable for our families.

Leadership Gifts are $100,000 or Greater 

Types of Gifts

Matching gifts are a great way to maximize personal contributions to Benedictine and increase the impact of individual gifts. By taking advantage of a company's matching gift benefit, you may be able to double or even triple the amount of a contribution. Each company has its own guidelines for employees, spouses, retirees, and widows/widowers. Most corporate procedures are very simple.

Donors may wish to make a gift to honor a priest, teacher, alumnus, or friend because of a special anniversary or circumstance. Honorary gifts are acknowledged to the honoree and are treated like any Annual Education Fund contribution. These gifts may be restricted to scholarship, endowment or left unrestricted. Memorial gifts are also placed in the appropriate area (scholarship, endowment, unrestricted) consistent with the intent of the donor and acknowledged to the family of the deceased.
