CTK Giving Programs

Through our various Giving Programs, you can designate where you would like your gift to make a direct impact.

The Annual Fund

Support the educational needs of our students and operating programs by making a gift to the CTK Annual boy and girlFund. Annual Fund support is unrestricted and therefore allows us to allocate your gift to "where it is needed most." For information regarding the CTK Annual Fund, please contact Ms. Maureen Kelly at (773) 413-3509 or [email protected]Learn more.

The Adopt-A-Student Program

Bridge the gap between what one of our students earns in his or her Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP) job and what his or her family can afford to pay. Every family at CTK pays tuition and every student works in a CWSP job, but still, each student needs approximately $5,000 to fully fund his or her CTK education. For information regarding the CTK Adopt-A-Student program, please contact Ms. Maureen Kelly at (773) 413-3509 or [email protected]Learn more.

The Family Assistance Fund

CTK has established the Family Assistance Fund to provide financial relief to our families facing temporary economic hardship. This fund is designed to keep students in school by relieving families of the difficult choice of addressing a financial emergency versus paying tuition. These funds are also used to support our alumni in their efforts to graduate from college. To learn more about the CTK Family Assistance Fund, please contact Ms. Maureen Kelly at (773) 413-3509 or [email protected]Learn more.

CTK hosts four annual fundraising events (King of Hearts Gala, RISE UP, Golf & Grill, and Spring Luncheon), with several options available to support and participate.Desmond family
  • Attend our Events! Purchase tickets, tables, or golf foursomes.
  • Become an Event Sponsor! By sponsoring a CTK event, you'll support our students while gaining exposure as a philanthropic partner. Reach a unique demographic at each event. Ask about our Packaged Sponsorship opportunities. 
  • Be an In-Kind Donor! Donate an item to one of our silent or live auctions.
  • Volunteer at our Events! If you are not able to participate in an event, you can still make it a success by volunteering your time. CTK is in need of individuals for planning committees as well as event-day activities.

The Lizzy Seeberg Memorial Fund

The Lizzy Seeberg Memorial Fund, in loving memory of the 19-year-old Northbrook youth, has helped us purchase a home across the street for our dedicated team of young adult volunteers. The renovated building provides housing for our Jesuit Volunteers, who give two years of post-college service to make tremendous difference for our students and school. Learn more.
