Founders' Circle and Gift Clubs
The Founders' Circle comprises donors who display exceptional interest in the advancement of the school by virtue of their gifts of $1,000 or more. It recognizes the financial stewardship of so many members of our community in supporting the school's operating and capital needs. Their generosity serves as an inspiration and is most appreciated. Alumni who are within 15 years of their graduation date are invited to become members of the Young Alumni Founders' Circle, with staggered contributions of less than $1,000.
Every year, members of the Founders' Circle are invited to a special dinner to thank them for their support of NWC. To see pictures from this year's event, which was held on Oct. 12, 2012, click here.
The Founders' Circle includes the following gift clubs:
Legacy Society $100,000+
These donors have an unwavering belief in the vision and future of Northwest Catholic. Gifts in this society are usually allocated for capital improvements or endowed scholarships. Many of these generous gifts originate from thoughtful estate planning or a special bequest.
Presidents' Circle $50,000-$99,999
Presidents' Circle members demonstrate exceptional generosity, faith in our vision, and a strong commitment to the mission and value of our school.
Rev. Frascadore Society $25,000-$49,999

Rev. Colton Society $10,000-$24,999
During his time at Northwest Catholic, Rev. Bradford Colton, the first principal, was an exemplary leader, educator, and mentor to many students. He lived the mission of our school with humbling grace and dedicated his life to educating others.
