Cristo Rey Network raises $250,000
Once colleges and universities across the country started changing operations in response to COVID-19, the national Cristo Rey Network jumped into action to assist our 7,000 college enrollees. With the help of a matching gift from a longstanding friend of the Network, $250,000 is now going to our alums in need. This funding will help with transportation and moving fees, costs associated with remote learning, and many other unexpected challenges our alumni are facing. We are so grateful for the generosity of everyone who helped us reach this goal!
How to Help
During this time of transition, we need your help more than ever as we try to support our students and our families with unexpected costs related to COVID-19. Some of these needs include aiding our students and families with technological assistance, food, and alumni travel/moving expenses.

All of this happens with your generosity... Make your gift to our Annual Fund today!
