Ways to Support



The Cristo Rey model allows students to earn much of the cost of their education through the school's innovative Corporate Work-Study Program. The students' families also contribute $500 to $2,500 per year, based on their ability to pay. The remaining balance comes from supporters like you.

We ask you to match our students' energy, commitment, and determination by making a gift to our school. Through your gift, you will help transform the lives of some of Atlanta's most deserving young people. Cristo Rey Atlanta is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, so your gift is 100% tax-deductible.


Annual Fund

Each year, the Advancement Office must raise $2 million in unrestricted operating funds to ensure Cristo Rey Atlanta is able to meet the expenses of running a school. Gifts of all sizes are welcome and greatly appreciated. Please click here to donate.


Student Scholarship Program

Corporate Work Study jobs cover the majority of the cost to educate, but a $5,000 gap remains that must be filled through philanthropy.  Scholarship Donors cover that gap with a gift of $5,000 per year or a pledge of $20,000 for all four years, but gifts of all sizes are welcome and appreciated.  Scholarship donors who commit to supporting a student through their high school journey will receive a profile of their student, and correspondence from their student twice each year.  If you are interested in meeting your scholarship recipient, please contact the Advancement Office. Please click here to donate. For more information, please click here.

Family Fund

Many of our supporters reached out to see how to best offer assistance during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) crisis. In the early days of the crisis, the most immediate need was assistance for school families who are struggling and need temporary financial relief to meet their rent, grocery, and utility bills will help ensure students remain committed to their studies and will provide much-needed security in these unstable times.  When things begin to stabilize, needs related to the crisis may be less, but there will always be times when families need support.  The Family Fund will continue to offer help in times when families need it most.  



Designated gifts to our Endowment Fund help secure Cristo Rey Atlanta's financial future. Endowment Fund earnings will be used to fill gaps in operational funding, provide additional enrichment opportunities to our students, and help us meet the pressing needs of the school.
