Support Cardinal Mooney Catholic High School

Cardinal Mooney High School is deeply rooted in tradition. Its many traditions have made it the exceptional academic institution it has become since it was founded in 1959. The most durable and impactful tradition that we maintain-is giving. Our strong tradition of giving from parents, alumni faculty and friends, allows us to continue to grow our academic and extracurricular programs, hire talented faculty, and update our campus to meet the ever-changing needs of educating our students for today’s world.

We are grateful for the ongoing support of alumni, parents, grandparents and friends, who gift their time, talent or financial generosity to help make a significant difference in the lives of our students and faculty. Your continued support is essential to allow us to provide an extraordinary educational experience and keep our community strong. Thank you for making Mooney a priority in your charitable giving.

Giving Opportunities

Please join us in our mission by supporting Cardinal Mooney Catholic High School in the following ways:

Mooney Fund

Rise to the Challenge!

The Mooney Fund is the most important fundraising campaign for our school as the dollars raised go directly into the current operating budget, which support not only the academic program, but also the athletic, arts, extracurricular and financial aid programs. These tax deductible donations help close the gap between what tuition covers and the true cost of educating a Mooney student. The gifts correspond with Mooney’s fiscal year, not the calendar year. They impact the experience of every Mooney student each and every day. The campaign opens on July 1 of each year and ends on June 30 of the following year.


Memorials and Tributes

Cardinal Mooney Catholic High School welcomes one-time gifts in memory of students, alumnae, staff and loved ones. In addition, tributes to teachers, students, and campus groups are gratefully accepted.


Adopt-A-Student Program

There are times when financial hardships fall on hardworking families. Often these situations can be temporary, but it is school tuition that may be one of the first expenses to be cut from the family budget. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to those individuals who sponsor students through the Adopt-A-Student program. As a result of this generosity, Cardinal Mooney students who are recipients of scholarship awards excel and develop into promising future leaders.
