Giving

The goal of the Advancement department is to create opportunities for our Crusaders through philanthropy. Our department plans fundraising programs and builds community through events among alumni, parents, and friends, all in with the goal to impact our school’s mission.

We know the importance of a Catholic-school education, which allows for growth and transformation on all levels: mind, body, and spirit. Mater Dei Catholic is grateful for our community and invites you to learn more about ways to become part of this tradition of giving.

Support Mater Dei Catholic
