2021 Fund-A-Need Goal Announcement
We are blessed to announce that we've surpassed our Fund-A-Need goal this year in support of Emergency COVID Relief. Thanks to ShamrAuction we were able to raise more than $190,000 to support not only the 50 families that received aid 1st semester (totaling $127,000) as well as an additional 8 families in 2nd semester.
2021 Fund-A-Need Background
One of the most unique parts of Cathedral High School is her dedication to a diverse community -- academically, geographically and of course, financially. Annually our ShamrAuction event raises funds to support our need-based aid program which assists over 35% of our student population. Additionally the event supports a Fund-A-Need project that benefits our entire Cathedral community.
As our country reels from the impact of the global pandemic we've felt it here at Cathedral too with multiple families expressing the need for emergency assistance grants to allow their children to remain at Cathedral. During the 1st semester alone Cathedral has answered that call awarding an additional $127,000 to 50 families (average grant $2,500) and we foresee the need continuing into 2nd semester.
