MIAMI, FL, July 2019 - We have raised close to $2.5 million dollars from private donors, family foundations and a prestigious grant from The Hearst Foundations for $75,000. Our new President, Billy Bludgus and Director of Development, Arlene Peterson have been working diligently with our Development Committee and Board Members to close the gap on overall LAUNCH 2020 Campaign goal of $6 million.
The funds raised during LAUNCH 2020, support the start-up needs of opening the school. We are on track for opening Fall 2020 and are encouraged by the countless individuals who have stepped up to
become “Founders” of this important school.
Our next benchmark is $2 million by the early part of 2020.  This will enable us to finalize the renovations on the property and procure the classroom resources needed to welcome the Founding Freshman class of 120 students next summer!
Currently, our donors are taking advantage of a strong market. Donating securities in a strong market is a win-win for the donor and Cristo Rey Miami High School, as is it enables a larger contribution through appreciated values of stock shares, bonds or securities and the donor does not pay the capital gains tax on the sale. If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity to fulfill a pledge or make a new contribution, please contact
Arlene Peterson at or 786-797-7611.
Thank you for your continued support of this important mission!
