The Crusader Fund Drive is TC’s annual fundraising campaign. Donations go towards budgeted expenses (and many unexpected expenses) not covered by tuition. Your generous support of this drive helps keep tuition affordable to our families.
What is the Crusader Fund?
Annual giving to the Crusader Fund is our number one fundraising priority. Your gift each year directly helps sustain the school community that you’ve joined. The Crusader Fund alone is such an important part of the financial landscape of our school that we depend on, and budget for, your donations to provide 3% of our operating revenue.
How much should I give?
Giving is something you should feel good about! Your gift each year should reflect a spirit of generosity, and an affirmation of the value of the educational and spiritual experience at Tampa Catholic. Families often begin at one giving level, and as circumstances permit, increase their giving accordingly.
Levels of Support
Gifts for the fiscal year ending on June 30 are acknowledged in the Annual Report of Donors, which is published in the Fall. The charts below will help you gain a better understanding of the levels and impact of each.

Each giving level makes a difference and helps us reach our goal.
How much do we need to raise in 2015-2016?
Like tuition, the amount of money we need to raise increases every year. This year, our goal is $200,000 in Crusader Fund contributions.
How is my contribution used?
Once we receive your gift, the money goes to work right away to help fund the excellent programs, innovative faculty, inspirational learning environment and life forming experiences available to every Tampa Catholic student.
Why is my participation so important?
Your gift is a symbol of confidence that enables the leadership of the school to move forward with plans for the year. When our entire community embraces participation and generosity, we create the Tampa Catholic experience that we all value and treasure.
Why not just raise tuition?
As a school of the Diocese of St. Petersburg, Florida guided since 1985 by the Congregation of Christian Brothers and the charism of their founder Blessed Edmund Rice, we keep tuition low and affordable so all qualified students who wish to get a Tampa Catholic education can attend. The Crusader Fund is a way for the entire community to make tax-deductible gifts that ensure high quality programs while allowing the school to maintain an affordable tuition.
