York Catholic Fund
Gifts to the York Catholic Fund create impact in all areas of the YC education experience. From helping make tuition costs accessible, providing professional development support for our outstanding teachers, creating opportunities to enhance facilities and technology, to delivering amazing student experiences across athletics, the arts and a wide variety of clubs and activities, every gift enriches the YC student experience. Each gift creates meaningful student experiences that help our young adults grow not just through academics, but also in faith, service and themselves.
For more information on the many ways the York Catholic Fund makes an impact, get in touch with the Advancement Team. We would love to share more about the inspiring stories of growth and transformation happening at YC.
Every Gift Makes an Impact
The generous support of donors is at the heart of York Catholic’s ability to create a place where every student is known, cared for, inspired to learn, and thrives in and out of the classroom. Through donor support, we can deliver meaningful educational experiences that inspire our students to be critical thinkers, curious learners, contributing collaborators, stewards of Christian values and thoughtful community members. Through your support, YC students achieve incredible successes:
- Gifts allow YC to make tuition costs accessible and allows YC to deliver exceptional academic experiences to a greater number of students. The York Catholic Fund closes the $4,000 per student per year gap between the tuition charged (starting at $6,000 per student per year for the high school) and the actual cost of enrollment for each YC student (roughly $10,500 per student per year).
- Over 95% of graduates continue their education at colleges and universities across the country and around the world.
- Our graduates are offered in upwards of $10 million in scholarships to continue their education.
- Students participate in an average of over 15,000 hours of service to our community each year.
Every student, family member, faculty, alumni and donor are a part of the YC story. Each plays an interconnected role in the important work we do together to enrich the lives of our community’s young adults to grow the next generation of learners and leaders. We appreciate your interest in the opportunities to support YC through giving. If you have questions or would like to learn more, reach out. We look forward to connecting.
