WHY GIVE TO CRNYHS?
Gifts to Cristo Rey New York High School have an immediate and purposeful impact in providing a quality, Catholic, college and career preparatory education to young men and women in New York City with limited educational options. Through your gift, you become part of the positive change that is taking place in America joining with a local school that is part of a 35-school network, 2,000 Corporate Partners, 46 University Partners, and other benefactors in providing the hope and the opportunity for college success to thousands of students across America today.
The cost of providing education for one Cristo Rey New York student is about $17,300. Through our Corporate Work Study Program, students earn $6,500 a year for their education. Cristo Rey New York has charged $2,000 for tuition since the day we opened in 2004, yet on average we receive about $1,400, as we will turn no student away for an inability to pay. Our model is innovative and successful but it does result in a large shortfall underwritten entirely through philanthropic support.
Cristo Rey New York High School is a 501(c)3 organization, and your contributions are fully tax deductible to the extent provided by law. Tax ID: 03-0495750.

We believe you are helping us to change the world, one student at a time.
