Annual Crusade/Go Big Give

Annual Crusade for Central Catholic2017 marked the first of many in Central Catholic's Annual Crusade. Aligned with the community's Go Big Give fundraiser, the Annual Crusade accepts donations for school and student necessities. By donating to the foundation's Annual Crusade for Central Catholic during the designated Go Big Give time frame in May, your donation earns bonus funds for our organization! Based on categories such as total amount raised, dates, times of donations, and other incremental milestones, the Central Catholic Development Foundation will receive a percentage of the Go Big Give bonus funds that are available this year! Each year we use the funds for specific needs for the school.

Annual Crusade

The 2019 Annual Crusade is an opportunity to make an immediate impact on all Central Catholic students. Your participation will provide:

  • New teacher devices, improved classroom technology & curriculum updates $20,000
  • Third year lease for student Chromebook Laptops $30,000
  • Annual Crusade total $50,000

Many classrooms at GICC are lacking the technology to keep up with the ever-changing world of education. Our teachers are currently using a variety of devices that are not compatible with other staff devices. With device continuity and replacing antiquated projectors with Smart Televisions, and curriculum improvements, we can create classroom environments that are consistent, compatible, and up to date!

We introduced Chromebooks for our students in 2017 as part of a lease. This is the third year of the lease which will continue to give each student a Chromebook to use while attending Grand Island Central Catholic. 

Thank you for your past support; you made a real difference! Please know we continue to thank God for blessing our school with great friends like you!

    Get Involved!

    Stewardship is one of the most important and effective gifts you can give. We simply would not have the quality and depth of programs available to our students without the countless hours our volunteers donate. We need your help; remember, “many hands make light work!” We are grateful for the support and love you show your children, our community, and our mission as you kindly and gladly serve.
