What does the Development Office do for a Catholic high school?
It can mean growing enrollment, raising money for new program(s) or facilities, communicating with alumni and the greater Catholic Community to fill the needs for this school. So it stands to reason, in order to do our job properly, we work on Marketing the school to increase enrollment and help raise money. We are active with Alumni Affairs in order to communicate the financial needs to some of our greatest benefactors, our alumni. We actively work with business and community leaders, grant programs, partner parish members, our parents, and our alumni to raise money to fulfill the needs or the school. That’s a big job and we cannot do it without your help.
What should you do?
- Pray! Please pray for our students, teachers, staff and parents that we are successful in completing the tasks God is asking from each of us here at LCC.
- Help spread the word about our great school! You can do that by telling others about LCC as we all work to grow our enrollment and by keeping your contact information updated with us here at this office, and encouraging others to do the same.
- Consider a donation today! We know everyone cannot always give large amounts of money. If you believe in the mission of LCC, then any donation at any time is significant to us.
