What happens to funds raised through The Gala?
For more than 40 years, The CCHS Foundation has worked to support Charlotte Catholic High School through its mission “to enrich the spiritual, academic and cultural development of our students by leading the fundraising efforts which support the current and future initiatives at Charlotte Catholic High School”.
The Gala is Charlotte Catholic High School’s biggest fundraising event and is led by the CCHS Foundation and committed parents and volunteers. More than $2 million has been raised through The Gala over the past 10 years to support the school and its students and faculty.
Funds raised through this year’s Gala will continue to support the direction of Catholic in the following ways:
Teacher Grants – these grants provide educational programs and equipment not funded through your tuition dollars for student learning, faith development and faculty needs to help keep Charlotte Catholic on the cutting edge.
Scholarships – as a supplement to the MACS Tuition Assistance Program, the CCHS Foundation provides need-based scholarships to eligible CCHS Students and children of CCHS teachers enrolled in MACS schools.
Teacher Recognition. This year, funds raised at The Gala will also support and recognize outstanding teachers at Charlotte Catholic High School through a new program designed to reward and retain our most effective and talented teachers. We have been blessed with extraordinary teachers at Charlotte Catholic. The Foundation and the parents and friends of Catholic who support it are committed to thanking those teachers in a tangible and meaningful way.
