Capital Campaign

In 2020, Notre Dame Cristo Rey High School acquired and moved from one school building in Lawrence, MA to five buildings just up the street in Methuen in order to provide more opportunities and programs for students.  Given the need for capital improvements to all five buildings, NDCR embarked upon a $10M Working for Our Future Capital Campaign in June of 2021.  Given the success of NDCR's model, the response to this Capital Campaign from donors wanting to invest in a sure thing, NDCR has secured $8.2M in funding.
