Crusader Fund

Crusader Fund


The Edgewood Crusader Fund is our financial lifeline and most important giving priority. As a private Catholic high school, we do not receive federal, state or diocesan support and rely on philanthropic support to bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost to educate each student.

Your tax-deductible, unrestricted gift is the best way for parents, alumni, and friends to make a meaningful difference in the breadth and depth of programs and resources available to our students, and keep an Edgewood education more affordable for families.

Only you can decide what is an appropriate gift from your family. We gratefully accept any and all contributions, but strive for 100% participation.

Crusader Fund FAQs

What is the Crusader Fund?

To retain strong academic and co-curricular offerings and keep the Edgewood experience affordable for more families, we must raise more than $1M for the Edgewood Crusader Fund. Your gift provides essential resources that help Edgewood provide financial assistance to 40% of our students each year.

When you make a gift to the Edgewood Crusader Fund, you provide the school with a competitive advantage to pursue new faculty, retain seasoned professionals, maintain our beautiful campus and offer students opportunities to achieve their greatest potential.

We rely on the generosity of parents, alumni, trustees, faculty and friends to accomplish this goal, since we do not receive federal, state or diocesan support.

While gifts of any amount are greatly appreciated, and we strive for 100% participation from alumni and parents, leadership gifts are necessary to achieve our goal. These gifts send a powerful message about the value and impact of an Edgewood education and are the lifeline of our school.

Your gift has a direct and lasting impact on each and every Crusader!
