Cristo Rey Tampa High School Scholarship Fund
Funds restricted through the annual appeal for annual scholarships are expended during the academic year in which the funds are given.
A temporary scholarship is a fund awaiting permanency. A gift restricted to create such a fund is segregated from other revenue pending permanency.
A permanent scholarship is an endowed fund. An endowed scholarship fund provides a predictable source of funding in perpetuity and will always memorialize or honor the name(s) placed on it. A donor has the option of funding the scholarship over a three period. The basic plan underlying an endowed fund is simple. The principal of the fund is never spent. It is invested and the earnings are used to fulfill the purpose(s) for which the fund was created.
We can provide information about funding alternatives (cash, marketable securities, planned gifts); the process involved in creating an endowment (agreement terms); naming options (your own, a loved one, a business); and donor benefits (personal satisfaction, reports, interaction with scholarship recipients, donor recognition society).
We invite you to join us in continuing the tradition of making a Salesian, Cristo Rey education available to qualifying students. Currently, the Scholarship Program includes three scholarships in permanent status.
Monsignor Laurence E. Higgins Scholarship Fund (2016)
Monsignor Laurence E. Higgins Catholic Student Scholarship Fund (2017)
Rose V. Spano Scholarship Fund (2017)
St. Peter Claver Scholarship Fund (2016)
