Campaign for Christ the King Announcement!

After nearly two years of hard work and creative thinking by our Board, the debt task force, our capital campaign committee, and our bankers at both U.S. Bank and Wintrust, all parties have agreed to a plan to eliminate our entire $18.8 million debt by raising $4 million in campaign pledges. This is a wonderful opportunity to leverage your capital gift many times over.

A small group of very generous donors, including our Board of Directors and other friends, have pledged over $3 million to begin the Campaign. We are excited to invite you to step forward and ensure this bold initiative is a success. The remaining $1 million must be secured in pledges.  Given this short window of time, we wanted to share the news of this opportunity with valued partners like you as soon as possible. We look forward to sharing our success in the next weeks and ask for your help.

Rev. Brian Paulson, S.J., Provincial of the Chicago-Detroit Province, expressed his support of this project,

"On behalf of the Chicago-Detroit Jesuits, please know of our deep gratitude to everyone who has worked so hard to get us to this point. In a very real way, this special opportunity gives us the possibility of completing the founding of Christ the King Jesuit College Prep, freeing up the school community to concentrate on the heart of the mission which is teaching and learning, and the moral, character and spiritual development of the young people entrusted to us. Onward to achieve this goal!"

To learn more about this exciting opportunity and help secure the future of Christ the King, please contact Steve Holte, Director of Development, at 773.413.3509 or sholte@ctkjesuit.org .

Thank you for your continued support of our students and school!
