Proceeds from the Annual Capital Improvements Committee Reception Help Ensure Schools Remain Thriving Learning Environments

NEW YORK (June 22, 2017) – More than 300 guests raised more than $200,000 for repairs and renovations at Catholic elementary schools in the Archdiocese of New York during the Annual Capital Improvements Committee Reception on Tuesday, June 20, at the Top of the Rock Observation Deck at Rockefeller Center. 


In addition to ticket proceeds, funds were raised from an extensive silent auction that included a three-night stay for two at the Sailrock Resort in Turks & Caicos and a VIP package to view the lighting of the world famous Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree. The top item of the night was a six-day safari package at the Zulu Nyala Game Lodge in South Africa, which went for $6,000.

His Eminence, Timothy Michael Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York, addressed the hundreds of guests, thanking them for their continued support.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Capital Improvements Committee, a program of Champions for Quality of Education, and their grants for inner-city elementary schools in the Archdiocese of New York in need of renovations and repairs.  The grants ensure that the schools can provide a safe, nurturing environment for students as well as to help increase enrollment. Since 1998, the Capital Improvements Committee has provided over $5.1 million to schools for over 280 projects. Sister Maureen Flynn of Santa Maria school in the Bronx shed some light as to what these funds mean to the schools, sharing that the grant they received would be used to help repair gates in front on the school.

About the Capital Improvements Committee

The Capital Improvements Committee, a volunteer-led program of Champions for Quality of Education, offers grants to elementary schools in the Archdiocese of New York for repairs and renovations that range from installing improved lighting to fixing broken windows and upgrading security systems. Grants serve to provide a more nurturing environment to students as well as to help increase enrollment in schools.

Champions for Quality Education, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, partners with Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of New York to ensure that all children benefit from a competitive, 21st century education.
