Our entire community of current families, faculty/staff, trustees, alumni, grandparents, and friends plays a part in helping us meet this need. Every gift makes a difference and participation is vitally important. Individual gifts range in size annually from $5 to $50,000.

The 2022-2023 Cathedral School Fund exceeded its budgetary goal with 98% of current parents, 100% of trustees, and 100% of faculty and staff participating through gifts to the fund – a remarkable demonstration of our community’s commitment to the School and its Mission.

Thank you for your support!

The Tax ID (EIN) for Cathedral School for Boys is 94-1156846. While operationally and financially independent, the School is a department of Grace Cathedral – a named subordinate of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the Diocese of California – and thus shares the same non-profit tax ID with its larger parent organizations. Cathedral School for Boys is recognized as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization and gifts are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
Goal: $1.91M

The Cathedral School Fund is the most important way to contribute to the School as it has the greatest impact on each and every student, teacher, and staff member.

Every gift, no matter the amount, makes a difference. Your contribution helps to ensure that every boy receives the best educational experience possible and that our dedicated teachers and staff have the resources and support they need. Thank you for helping our students and Cathedral School move forward with confidence.
