Announcing - And Still We Rise Capital Campaign



We have launched “And Still We Rise,” a campaign to raise $10 million for three primary objectives:

  • To bridge the CWSP revenue loss through the 2022/2023 school year: $3 million
  • To fund targeted curriculum and physical space changes, primarily a collaborative Innovation Center, to prepare students for the technological needs of our CWSP partners, college, and future careers: $1 million
  • To accelerate endowment growth beyond its initial level of $450,000, providing an essential financial foundation: $6 million.


"Whether you are a longtime CTK supporter who is aware of the life-changing opportunities Christ the King provides to our students, or new to our story, we invite you to rise with us. Please consider how your gift to our campaign resonates deeply in the present circumstances of our students.  The opportunities that your support provides today will continue to grow with each new experience in each student’s life – for the rest of their life."

Clem Martin. CTK President

Thanks to multiple generous donors, we have raised $9.4 million toward $10 million.

Help us reach our $10 Million Goal!
