Building the Future Major Gifts Initiative

A major gifts initiative continues to enhance the physical building and campus of Union Catholic and build an endowment that will answer the needs of current and future generations of students, faculty, staff and families. The Building the Future Major Gifts Initiative is a multi-phase program that has resulted in exciting enhancements to our academic program and athletic facilities, but there is much more work to be done. Our goal for Phase 3 of this campaign is to raise $1.75 million.

Accomplishments to date include:

  • Creation of seven endowed scholarships
  • Construction of an access ramp in the corridor adjacent to the UC auditorium
  • Renovations to the School Counseling Department
  • Adoption of the Canvas by Instructure learning management system
  • Renovation of two science labs
  • SMART technology in all classrooms
  • Gymnasium refurbishment
  • Installation of a turf field and new track surface
  • Locker replacement to allow space for laptops
  • Boys and girls bathroom renovations, plus a handicap-accessible restroom

Our vision for the future includes:

  • Establishing and growing an endowment
  • Expanding the scholarship program
  • Completing the athletic complex
  • Installing an elevator
  • Creation of a chapel and student gathering space

These enrichments, along with technology infrastructure upgrades, will strengthen the innovative teaching and learning opportunities already in place, and enhance UC's physical building and campus.
