Anchor Fund

In conjunction with the creation of Anchor Day, Cristo Rey has developed the Anchor Fund.  The Anchor Fund will support all aspects of this new Anchor Day and related Corporate Work Study Program needs such as: 

  • Professional training and unique enrichment activities for 75 student trainers on Anchor Day, including fieldtrips and career exploration. 
  • Expanded student professional development for all grade levels. 
  • External partnerships with thought leaders such as Code Nation, RUSH Neurobehavioral, the Economic Awareness Council, Prismatic, and Microsoft TEALS. 
  • Expanded technology needs in new newly built classrooms dedicated to training. 
  • Support for the cost of education for 75 students who are not deployed to work sites. 
  • Expansion of the CWSP team to include Senior Training Manager, CWSP Trainer, and Education Technologist positions to implement programming. 

The Anchor Fund also includes gifts designated to the underwriting of student work placements at local non-profits.  Underwriters cover the cost of a job at a non-profit, allowing students to earn a majority of their tuition as they gain work experience, while NPOs benefit from great talent as they work towards community impact. 

All gifts to the Anchor Fund are tax-deductible contributions. 

If you or your organization would like to learn more about these opportunities, please reach out to Taylor Sticha, Director of Strategic Initiatives.
