100% of Cristo Rey Jesuit students are from under served families in Baltimore City. Each year, we must raise an excess of $3.5 million to support our students and our mission. With every Cristo Rey student on a scholarship, every gift to CRJ goes to straight to our bottom line, and is truly the gift of opportunity, through education. Your partnership is critical to our success. There are many ways you can advance our mission in Baltimore - scroll down to see options. 


Bridges to the Future Fund

Gifts to the Bridges Fund provide vital resources  to power Cristo Rey Jesuit High School’s transformational college preparatory and corporate internship programs. Support students and teachers with textbooks, technology, job training, professional development, after-school activities, and more. 

Matching Gifts Double your impact with a matching gift. Check with your company to see if they match employee giving to eligible nonprofits like Cristo Rey Jesuit.

Sponsor a Student

Each of our students is sponsored by a scholarship benefactor. This commitment is a partnership with our students, who work as corporate interns to contribute to the cost of their education. Scholarship partners receive letters from their student and are invited to events throughout the year. View the sponsorship brochure for information on contribution levels or call Meghan Tapscott at (410) 727-3255 x1006.

Sponsor an Event

Each spring, over 300 CRJ supporters gather to celebrate our students and raise funds to support our mission. Promote your business or personal commitment to creating a better Baltimore through education by becoming an event sponsor. View photos of past events here. 

Sponsor Work at Non-Profits

Cristo Rey Jesuit places some student interns in jobs at area nonprofits. These jobs provide rewarding work experience, but  many organizations in the nonprofit sector cannot afford to pay for interns. Angel Sponsors can make a gift to help a local group fulfill important work toward their own mission while covering the tuition that a Cristo Rey Jesuit student would earn if they were working for a for-profit corporation. To learn more about this opportunity, or about employing students directly, contact Mr. John Busse, Director of the Corporate Internship Program at (410) 727-3255 x1010 or

Creating an Endowment

Creating an endowed fund establishes a permanent investment for Cristo Rey Jesuit and provides a steady and lasting source of income support that is meaningful to you.

  • $200,000 - Endow a full scholarship
