Giving at Catholic Central

A gift to Catholic Central High School is an investment in our students and in West Michigan that provides a significant and measurable return. We are proud to be ranked among the best schools in the state and are even prouder of our graduates who are shaping their lives and society through their faith, education, and goodwill.

Your support allows us to provide an educational and spiritual experience unlike any other high school in West Michigan, Thank you!

Ways to Give

Annual Fund

Every year, Catholic Central receives requests for financial assistance from hundreds of families who need help to attend CC — more than 50% of our student body. Turning away students motivated to attend here due to their financial situation is not an option. To meet demand, we actively raise money. Annual events like our auction, phonathon, Giving Tuesday, and year-end appeal all contribute to our tuition assistance fund, known as the Annual Fund.

Learn more about the annual fund here.


The Foundation for Catholic Secondary Education (FCSE) was founded in 1975 to provide private support to both Catholic Central and West Catholic high schools. For over 25 years, the FCSE has existed to promote and financially support the religious, charitable, and educational endeavors of both schools and its Diocese through responsible investing and distribution of resources. When you give to the Foundation for Catholic Secondary Education, you help us make a difference.
