Why Give?

Your gift is an investment in the achievements and dreams of our students and the mission of our movement. We are grateful for the support of donors whose gifts help ensure that a Cristo Rey education is possible for our students for years to come.

Your support to the Cristo Rey Network enables us to sustain our growth and expand the necessary programs for our schools to open a new world of possibilities for thousands of deserving young men and women. Our growing national movement offers youth in under-resourced communities access to high quality education and empowers them to succeed in college and the workplace.

"When we consider organizations to fund, we evaluate effectiveness, efficiency, scalability - and really all of those things reflect on the quality of management. Cristo Rey does an outstanding job on all those fronts. But what really makes them stand out in my mind is the commitment of the community. The commitment of the student who chooses a more difficult path in order to help themself success. The Wilson Sheehan Foundation is proud to be a partner of Cristo Rey."
