Support Catholic Memorial

Each year over 1,000 people donate over $1 million to CMH. These donations come from alumni, alumni parents, current parents, corporations, and friends of CMH. Some donors give to CMH once a year, others set-up recurring gifts that are automatic each month, and others choose to attend an event. Donors who support the CMH annual fund impact our students by providing tuition assistance, academic and extracurricular program support, and facilities updates.

In addition to the gifts that support the annual fund, over the past 5 years CMH has raised almost $11 million through the Crusading for Excellence Campaign which has more than doubled our endowment and provided many large capital improvements such as creating the Innovation Wing, renovating the Academic Resource Center, installing air conditioning throughout the entire building, new lockers, and a turf field in the valley. None of this would have been possible without our donors.

Please contact Chelsea Ostrov at (262) 347-4009 to discuss the legacy gift planning process.
  • Matching Gifts

    Double your impact! Many corporations will match the gifts made by their employees and retirees to a qualifying nonprofit organization. Companies usually match the tax-deductible portion of your gift, which means that your Crusader Fund, Scholarship, or Team donations could qualify! Click here for a list of companies that provide a matching gift. If you do not see your company listed, please contact your HR department to find out if your gift can be matched by your employer, and to request a matching gift form. In 2016, CMH received over $70,000 in matching gifts from 19 companies.

    Here is a list of national companies offering a matching gift program. This is a great way to double your contribution to CMH at no cost to you!

    We acknowledge the match from your employer as a separate contribution from the corporation. Due to corporate-giving guidelines, members and donors cannot receive any benefits from the match of their gift.

    Here's how it works:
    1. View our list of matching gift companies here. If your company isn't on our list, find out if it has a matching gift program.
    2. Obtain a matching gift form from your employer. Usually this is from human resources, a charitable giving department or personnel.
    3. Send the completed form or your company’s matching gift  contact information with your donation to Catholic Memorial High School (601 E. College Avenue, Waukesha, WI 53186). Contact Chelsea Ostrov with any questions at or (262) 347-4009.
  • Stock Gifts

    CMH accepts gifts of stock. To appropriately credit and acknowledge your generosity, it is important that the Development Office is notified prior to every stock transfer.
