The Central Catholic High School Foundation was established in 1974 to promote and encourage support to the families in the way of tuition assistance through endowed funds. Today the Foundation's role has been expanded to include the CCHS Memorial Program, our extensive Scholarship Program, professional development for teachers and staff, and our Capital Campaigns. 

Through the CCHS Memorial Program, loved ones are remembered through a gift that supports the ongoing Catholic education of our young people. The Scholarship Program allows us to recognize students who excel in academics and/or need financial assistance to continue their Catholic education at Central Catholic. Our endowments for professional development provide funding teachers and staff alike to grow in their profession while our capital campaigns has enabled us to maintain and grow our facilities and grounds.

Central Catholic High School has been named as the beneficiary of several insurance policies; often donors have taken out insurance policies to assure the support of their children and once the children are grown, feel they no longer need them. They are able to receive tax advantages and the CCHS Foundation benefits upon their death. We are extremely grateful for these gifts as well as for so many others from thoughtful and generous friends of Central Catholic.

For more information about the foundation and ways to give to CCHS, including planned gifts and estate gifts, call Kari Paris, Foundation Director, at (209) 524-6822.

Legacy Giving Program For over fifty years, Central Catholic has been a benchmark in our community and beyond, challenging and educating our young people. It has changed the way they view their faith, education, and sense of community in a very positive way.

Over the years, gifts from wills and trusts have been critical to the work we do in the education and formation of our students. They have enabled us to maintain and develop the outstanding academic and co-curricular programs here at Central Catholic, including many of our endowed scholarships.

This tradition of giving to the CCHS Foundation through estate and planned gifts provides us with needed resources that allow us to create opportunities for our young men and women to develop their talents.
