St. Margaret of Cortona School is blessed to be one of more than 300 schools, across seven archdioceses and dioceses, participating in the Catholic Alumni Partnership (CAP). CAP is a groundbreaking program – enabling us to reconnect with and re-engage our alumni for ongoing support. In the Archdiocese of New York, we are one of 51 schools participating in a pilot program. St. Margaret of Cortona has been, and will continually be, working closely with CAP staff to identify our alumni and creating opportunities for those individuals to become active members of our school community.
CAP is a new, privately funded initiative to support Catholic elementary schools by implementing strong, sustainable annual fundraising programs for each participating school, with alumni support as the foundation.
In a recent issue of the Catholic New York, Dr. Timothy McNiff, Superintendent of Schools for the Archdiocese of New York said, “the seven archdioceses and dioceses participating in the Catholic Alumni Partnership are appreciative of this new and innovative opportunity to help our Catholic elementary schools meet the increasing financial demands they encounter. By providing the resources for schools to reconnect with their graduates, our schools will be better positioned to establish an ongoing relationship with their alumni. In return, I am confident those graduates will embrace their former school community that provided a foundation of life success for them. They will be helping to ensure that foundation will be present for other young people.”
