HENDERSON FAMILY ATHLETIC TRAINING CENTER:
This state-of-the-art training and sports medicine facility
will likely be the first of its kind for a high school, providing innovative services for our student-athletes at every level. It will house areas for evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation to include whirlpools and a water treadmill for hydrotherapy, training tables for a variety of therapeutic modalities, massage chairs, and nutrition and storage spaces. The approximately 2,000 square-foot facility will be completely remodeled and designed so that it empowers our Explorers to heal, achieve, and excel in athletic performance.
The Annual Fund
is a general development fund used for campus improvements. With these funds, we can expand and improve our facilities thus enabling Columbus to provide our students with an education that supports the Marist Mission. This Fund helps us with improvements that are needed on campus.BR. KEVIN ADELANTE FUND:
Named after former President, Br. Kevin Handibode, FMS, the Br. Kevin Adelante Fund
was established for qualified families who need help with tuition assistance. Your donation to this fund will be helping families who value a Marist Catholic Education but without assistance would not be able to send their sons to Columbus. The fund helps make a Columbus education more accessible to a diverse and talented student body. There are strict guidelines in place to evaluate and approve families for financial aid. Please note that this fund has replaced the 100 @1000 and 1000 @ 100.
CARING HEARTS FUND: This newly created fund will help Explorers with unforeseen circumstances. Many of our current students are struggling against difficult odds as they try to complete their education. Although traditional financial aid helps with their tuition, some students lack adequate family support or resources to cover unexpected financial hardships. Your contribution, no matter how big or small will make a difference. For example, a $3.00 donation will buy a school lunch for a young man who may otherwise go hungry.
This is our future. The Capital Campaign
funds are used for the construction of new buildings at Columbus. Currently, we are raising funds for the Marcus Lemonis & Mario Sueiras Center for Science & the Arts. The project is estimated to cost $25 million and has an anticipated completion date in early 2022.
