Give to the Northwest Catholic Fund

The Northwest Catholic Fund, known in many other schools as the Annual Fund, plays a vital role in the lives of our students and faculty. Annual giving makes up nearly 10% of the school's operating budget. Thank you for making your gift.

Founders' Circle

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. Their generosity serves as an inspiration.

Every year, members of the Founders' Circle are invited to a special dinner to thank them for their support of NWC.

The Founders' Circle includes the Gift Clubs listed below.

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' Society $50,000-$99,999

Presidents' Society 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

As the school's first president, Rev. Henry C. Frascadore initiated the Annual Fund and pioneered the development of the Northwest Catholic Endowment Fund. As a result, the school grew tremendously, and today's students continue to enjoy the fruits of these programs.

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.

Archbishop's Society $5,000-$9,999

NWC opened its doors in 1961, thanks in part to the vision and support of Most Rev. Henry J. O'Brien, Archbishop of Hartford at the time. Gifts from the members of this society make a notable impact on the growth and progression of our school and inspire others to invest in its future.

Green & White Society $2,500-$4,999

Every fan of Northwest Catholic knows that green and white are as popular today as they were in 1961, when they made their debut as our school colors.

Dominican Order Society $1,000-$2,499

In 1961 eight Dominican Sisters of St. Mary of the Springs devoted their time and energy to educating the young minds of Northwest Catholic students. Their guidance provided the foundation for the growth and development of the student body.
