Sponsor A Scholar

Every Cristo Rey student earns a significant portion of the cost of his or her education by working at one of our corporate partners through our Corporate Work Study Program. Additionally, each family commits to pay an appropriate amount of tuition, based on their financial situation. However, even after a student's earnings and his or her family's contribution, there is a gap of approximately $10,000 to fully fund a Cristo Rey Orange County education.

Our students need benefactors to bridge the gap between what they earn, what their families pay, and the cost of a quality Cristo Rey education.  We invite you to build that bridge by participating in our Sponsor a Scholar Program. Your generous support will provide a Catholic, college preparatory education and work experience to a young person who needs it. And one who will most likely be the first college graduate in his or her family. 

For more information, contact Kelly Brennan, Development Officer or click below to make a gift online.

A gift of $10,000 provides 100% of the gap in funding needed to educate a Cristo Rey student following the student's work study earnings and the family’s contribution 

A gift of $20,000 bridges the gap for 2 students 

A gift of $40,000 provides 100% of needed funds for one student through graduation. 

Gifts in any amount are gratefully accepted  and will help provide crucial funding for our students.
