What to Support

Cristo Rey Research Triangle High School relies on philanthropic support from our community to prepare our students for college and career success. 
Your gift to one of the programs listed below will provide an immediate and direct impact on the education our students receive. 

Your donation to our Annual Fund will ensure our students can benefit from an education that will transform their lives.  


Gifts of all sizes will have a direct and immediate impact on reducing tuition costs for the families of our students, providing books and educational supplies to our students, and recruiting inspiring teachers to encourage them to become their best selves in the classroom and beyond.    

Donors participating in our Sponsor A Scholar program help close the gap between what they earn at their Corporate Work Study jobs, what their families can contribute, and the cost of a transformational Cristo Rey education.


Learn more by visiting the Sponsor A Scholar webpage.


Our space in the historic American Tobacco Campus in downtown Durham will offer students the opportunity to gain the competence, confidence, and aspiration that is vital to college and career success in a unique and inspiring learning environment. You can provide this experience to our students by helping offset the renovation and construction costs of our new facility.
Naming opportunities are available but limited. Please contact Derek Spahr, Director of Development, at 919-695-3947 or [email protected] for more information.   
Founding Donors
The Cristo Rey Research Triangle High School will recognize those who have generously supported our students during our inaugural school year as Founding Donors.
