Annual Appeal Honor or Memory 

Dear Friends of Cristo Rey,

AdvancementIn 2006, the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth made a bold move. At the very moment when shutters were appearing on urban Catholic schools across the country, the sisters said, “Yes,” to sponsoring a private, Catholic college and career prep high school exclusively for students with economic need. From the seeds of that decision, the educational landscape changed dramatically.

Gold Seal of Transparency

Today - 15 years later - others have come to realize that Cristo Rey Kansas City – a jewel in our city, a jewel for under-served families in our community – is another in a series of deliberate actions that are the bridge that connects people with life-giving hope.

Your investment in the students of Cristo Rey will open the doors and allow them to look forward to the good that is yet to be. With your help, they are prepared to join the workforce as contributing members of society. Whether you make a gift to sponsor a student or to our annual fund, you make a deliberate investment in the future.

Our vision is bold but clear:  enable young people to have a successful, financially sustainable life while making meaningful contributions to our community. Please join us in our efforts to build a more inclusive and equitable society by educating Kansas City's future leaders.

Ever forward,
Rebecca Summers

Director of Institutional Advancement
