What is The Crusader Fund?

It’s the easiest way to give back to your Steubenville Catholic Schools!

During the 2015-2016 school year, Catholic Central High School began
The Crusader Fund with a direct goal to keep the Fund growing each year.
The Crusader Fund is helping to slowly eliminate raffles, candy sales and other
fundraisers that aren’t always the most worthwhile for our students and families.
But more importantly, The Crusader Fund is the school’s annual fund drive. It is the
critical bridge between tuition and actual cost to educate a Central student. As an
annual source of support, the fund helps to meet the actual cost of operating the
school. Tuition and parish support are not enough to sustain annual needs and balance
the school budget each year. We rely on the generosity and support of our
alumni, family and friends – the extended Crusader family – to grow the Crusader

This school year will begin the fourth appeal for The Crusader Fund. With your
support, we can strengthen this fund, improve the lives of our students, and foster
a culture of philanthropy that will sustain the school for years to come.
This year, Steubenville Catholic Schools is celebrating 128 years of graduating
excellence. To commemorate this time, there is no more important way to show
your support for Central than through a generous gift to the Crusader Fund.
Giving at Central starts here.

Please know that your generous gift is directly applied to the following core
aspects of the educational experience:
• Tuition Assistance
• Faculty and Staff Salaries
