Looking to the future of Boylan Catholic High School
In order to achieve our vision of excellence as well as meet current academic and extracurricular demands, Boylan Catholic finds it necessary to initiate a comprehensive fundraising effort over the next five years. This will accomplish several goals through focus on growing Boylan’s Annual Fund and Endowment and investing in capital improvements.
Growth of the Annual Fund $4.0M over 5 years
The purpose of the Annual Fund is to establish an income stream that will support the entire educational program, year after year. Essentially, the Annual Fund bridges the gap between tuition paid and the actual cost of educating each student. The Annual Fund also supports the need-based Student Assistance Program. Currently, one in three families receives partial assistance.
Therefore, by growing the Annual Fund, we can provide student assistance, special academic and support programs, technological upgrades and equipment, enhancement of staff salaries, and other campus needs to achieve the standard of excellence we seek.
Securing our future through Endowment $2.5M
over 5 years
Growth of the Boylan Educational Foundation (BEF), our Endowment, is necessary to secure the financial stability needed to guarantee Boylan Catholic’s excellence for the next generation. Endowment interest provides the school with an additional income source. Consequently, Endowment growth ensures the financial resources for retaining talented teachers and maintaining a competitive edge in new hires.
$3.5M over 5 years,
renovation of PE locker rooms,
center for health and fitness building
When Boylan opened its doors in 1960, locker rooms were designated to be used primarily by Physical Education classes. Currently, boys’, girls’ and visiting teams are using locker and meeting space built for another generation’s PE classes.
The burgeoning popularity of girls’ sports has outstripped our capacity to house them. It is imperative, then, that Boylan Catholic add up-to- date locker space, provide coaches’ offices, and a state-of-the-art weight room to accommodate girls’ and boys’ athletics.
Both projects are essential.
Renovation of the existing locker rooms will accommodate Physical Education classes. The construction of the Center for Health and Fitness will provide new space for girls’ and boys’ varsity sports, coaches’ offices, and personal fitness programs.
