Ways to Give
Become a Partner in Our Mission
DePaul Cristo Rey (DPCR) relies on the generous support of donors to join us as partners in educating the students we serve. Each year gifts provide essential funds for much-needed scholarships, a student emergency fund, and operating costs not covered by the Corporate Work Study Program and the modest investment our parents make based on their ability to pay. There are many ways to make a difference and all help to ensure the success of our students. Please visit our Volunteer page to see how you can share your time and talents.
The DePaul Cristo Rey Fund
Annual gifts made to the DPCR Fund help to support scholarships, the Corporate Work Study Program, emergency student needs and operating expenses. The DPCR Fund helps cover the difference in the actual cost of a DPCR education and the small amount most families pay.
The Dream Big Scholarship Fund
The Dream Big Scholarship Fund allows you to support a full, half or partial scholarship for one of our students, making an investment in a young person’s life that can have an impact on generations to come. All DePaul Cristo Rey students need significant financial assistance and no student is denied admission or released once enrolled if they can’t pay tuition. Each student needs between $3,000 and $5,000 annually to fund the portion of the cost of education not covered by his or her work study earnings and family tuition payments. The Dream Big Scholarship Fund helps with that funding gap and supports the hopes and future of students who need someone else to believe in their big dreams.
Rey of Light
The annual Rey of Light completely benefits DPCR students by providing scholarship dollars needed to help families afford a Catholic, private, college prep education. Rey of Light will be held on Saturday, April 29, 2017, at DePaul Cristo Rey. Please see the Volunteer page to learn more about how you can be part of this important event.
The annual fall Golf Classic brings together Corporate Partners, members of the Cincinnati business community and DPCR friends to enjoy a day at the course. Opportunities to support this event include sponsorship, underwriting, golfing and volunteering. All net proceeds benefit need-based scholarship assistance.
Nonprofit Work Study Sponsorship
Some of our Corporate Work Study Program jobs are in nonprofit organizations. Most nonprofits cannot afford to hire a team of students, so we depend upon generous donors.to underwrite these positions.Learn more.
Student Emergency Fund
There are many factors that influence a child’s ability to learn including health, safety, home life and economic status. Some of the students we serve face significant family and economic challenges that severely impact their ability to focus on their education. Through the Student Emergency Fund, school staff can respond to student needs, assess family situations and offer financial assistance for housing, utilities, transportation, food and clothing.
Graduate Support Program
DPCR serves predominantly minority, low-income students who are typically the first in their families to enter college. The Graduate Support Program assists our alumni as they navigate the transition to higher education and the complexities of college academics, financial aid and residence life.
Kroger Community Rewards
The Kroger Community Rewards program offers you the opportunity to support DPCR every time you go shopping at Kroger, and there is no additional cost to you. By using a Kroger Plus card and designating DPCR as the Kroger Rewards recipient (using NPO # 82708), a percentage of what you spend can be credited to DPCR’s Community Rewards account and DPCR will earn a quarterly cash rebate. Here are step-by-step instructions on how to enroll in this program.
