Become A Part of the Solution - Invest in Something Great
Every gift made to the Catholic Partnership Schools makes a difference. By supporting the Catholic Partnership Schools, you are not just nurturing young minds and spirits, providing tuition assistance and scholarships, or strengthening educational and extra-curricular program offerings. You would be on the forefront of a national movement to reform Catholic urban education, and to preserve a century-long legacy of social justice and excellence for future generations.
The 1,000 boys and girls who attend the Catholic Partnership Schools face enormous obstacles in their Camden neighborhoods. Their resilience and ability to thrive proves that their schools – often the only safe haven in their lives – are worth fighting for. The lifeline that the Catholic Partnership Schools extend to the students through this initiative is an investment that has an impact today and will for years to come.
Gifts to Catholic Partnership Schools are fully tax deductible as charitable contributions as allowed by law.
Ways to Give
Give to the Annual Fund
Support CPS’s critical operating needs, from keeping the lights on to offering quality literacy programs, through one-time or monthly giving.
When you give, you change CPS students’ lives and put them on a path to success. You can help students break the cycle of poverty and violence through a holistic, innovative education.
Sponsor a Student
By sponsoring a student, you can unlock their potential. And see firsthand the impact your donation makes! Your gift covers the majority of the annual cost to educate one CPS student.
Many sponsors get to know their students through our sponsorship events. Enjoy board games and breakfast or lunch with students. There is no obligation to become involved with your student. However you choose to approach your sponsorship, CPS will keep you updated on the student’s growth.
How "Sponsor a Student" (SAS) Works
- You, or a group of friends, make an annual gift of $7,000 to cover the cost of one CPS student’s education.
- CPS sends you regular updates about your sponsored student's progress during the year.
- You are invited to spend time with your sponsored student at annual SAS gatherings and other activities.
- You are not obligated to meet or interact with your sponsored student if you prefer to watch him or her grow from a distance or anonymously.
- Gifts to the "Sponsor a Student" program are unrestricted gifts.
