Annual Fund

The Cardinal Gibbons Annual Fund is a yearlong appeal that forms the cornerstone of our fundraising activities and allows every member of the Cardinal Gibbons community, including alumni far and wide, to support our mission. Gifts made to the Cardinal Gibbons Annual Fund help cover the outstanding costs of our day-to-day operations. Every gift, no matter the size, immediately, and directly, impacts our students and enhances their educational experience at Cardinal Gibbons. Our donors help support tuition assistance, academic programs, classroom upgrades, technology enhancements and faculty professional development.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Annual Fund used for?

The Gibbons Annual Fund will be used exclusively for the current year's operating costs, which includes:
• Tuition Assistance
• Renovation of Current Classrooms
• Enhanced Technology

How is the Gibbons Annual Fund different from the Dinner Auction, the Raffle, or the Golf Tournament?

All of these events are essential annual fundraising programs, and we sincerely appreciate all who continue to support them. However, gifts made to our Annual Fund are specifically dedicated to supplement our operating budget and address annual expenses.

How can you help?

Through your support of the Gibbons Annual Fund you can help us fulfill our mission and meet our operating needs. You can help us provide tuition assistance for those families in the greatest need and help enhance our students' educational experience.

Gifts of $1,000 or more welcome you into the President's Circle which honors our outstanding philanthropic leaders.
