Endowment - CH Foundation

A Symbol of Financial Stability

Cascia’s endowment is a symbol of financial stability, and functions as the “savings account” for the school.  The Cascia Hall Foundation was established in 1999 and is a separate legal organization with 501 (c)(3) non-profit status. The Board of Directors oversees the management and investment of the funds.

We welcome gifts to enhance our programs and departments and ensure that our outstanding education will be available to future generations of Cascia students.  Gifts of any amount to The Cascia Hall Foundation will be invested, and the earnings will be used for the financial benefit of the school. Your gift can be designated for general purposes to The Cascia Fund, to one of the other established funds, or for a new purpose.
