The Cate Fund is Cate School’s annual giving program, a vital part of the School’s finances. Tuition to Cate only accounts for 71% of the cost of a Cate education. Endowment income and the Cate Fund make up the difference.
Each year, Cate’s loyal alumni, parents, and friends make gifts to the Cate Fund that provide 9% of the school’s operating budget. In 2015-16, gifts to the Cate Fund provided over $2 million in operating support. Your investment in the Cate Fund delivers immediate impact and improves the experience of every student and faculty member on the Mesa.
The 2016-17 Cate Fund runs from July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017. If you have questions about the Cate Fund or would like to get more involved, please contact the Cate Fund Director Colin Donovan.
