Since the school's founding in 1950, the generosity and interest of the community has fostered Santa Catalina's reputation for educational distinction. A long tradition of giving has created outstanding opportunities for our students to realize their full potential. Parents and alumnae, faculty and staff, foundations and friends all play a vital role in our ability to prepare young minds for tomorrow's world. Your generosity truly makes a difference.
The Santa Catalina Fund
The heart of our fundraising program and school’s number one philanthropic priority, the Santa Catalina Fund has a tremendous impact on many areas of school life, including offsets to operational costs, maintaining a strong tuition assistance program, and allowing us to attract and retain outstanding faculty.

The Legacy Campaign
The Legacy Campaign offers families, alumnae, friends, and others the opportunity to support a historic, once-in-a-lifetime period of vision and development at Santa Catalina. The $50 million comprehensive campaign for facilities and endowment touches all areas of school life and will benefit our students and faculty for years to come. Learn more about the Legacy Campaign.
The Veritas Challenge
In June 2019, a group of anonymous donors joined together to pledge $5 million to rally the Santa Catalina community to finish the Legacy Campaign by June 30, 2020. The pledge, known as The Veritas Challenge, is for the school’s tuition assistance endowment. It also aims to increase annual giving through new and increased gifts to the Santa Catalina Fund. Here’s how the challenge works:
First-time donors to the Santa Catalina Fund will be matched 1:1, with Veritas funds going directly to the tuition assistance endowment.
Returning donors to the Santa Catalina Fund who increase their previous year’s gift will be matched 1:1 on the increase, with Veritas funds going directly to the tuition assistance endowment.
Legacy Campaign donors who pledge $25,000 or more to the tuition assistance endowment will be matched 1:1, with Veritas funds going directly to the tuition assistance endowment. Donors will be acknowledged for their gift amount, plus the matching gift amount.
