Christendom College stands as a rare bastion of authentically Catholic liberal arts education that is working, without federal funding, to mold and shape the next generation of Catholic leaders. We’re proud that our classical liberal arts curriculum has led the Intercollegiate Studies Institute to rank us as one of the nation’s “Top Ten Exceptional Schools.” Our vibrant community, faith-life, and challenging academics have ensured that we are repeatedly ranked by numerous think tanks as a top Catholic and conservative college.
Our Advancement staff works hard to make this success possible and is a critical driver in the next stage of our College’s growth. The preparation for our soon-to-be announced capital campaign has launched major investments in Advancement infrastructure, including a new acquisition program, a first major gift hire, the addition of research and data staff, the creation of a new phone bank, and additional support hires. Now the Advancement Office invites another dedicated major gift officer to take advantage of those investments.
