Why Your Gift to Edgewood Matters

Support the new Performing Arts Center in honor of Dennis McKinley!

For more than a century, Edgewood High School has been committed to academic and personal success, preparing students with the confidence, skills and character it takes to thrive in a rapidly changing world.

What is the Annual Fund?

Keeping the Edgewood experience affordable for more families is a priority. To retain strong academic and co-curricular offerings, we must raise more than $1M for the Edgewood Annual Fund. Your gift provides essential resources that:

  • bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost to educate each student – nearly $2,000 per child.
  • help Edgewood provide more than $700,000 in financial assistance to 40% of our students each year.

We rely on the generosity of parents, alumni, trustees, faculty and friends to accomplish this goal, since we do not receive federal, state or diocesan support.

While gifts of any amount are greatly appreciated, and we strive for 100% participation from alumni and parents, leadership gifts are necessary to achieve our goal. These gifts send a powerful message about the value and impact of an Edgewood education and are the lifeline of our school.

You Don’t Just Give…You Give Back

When you make a gift to the Edgewood Annual Fund, you provide the school with a competitive advantage to pursue new faculty, retain seasoned professionals, maintain our beautiful campus and offer students opportunities to achieve their greatest potential.

Your gift has a direct and lasting impact on each and every Crusader!


Our needs include:

Capital Campaign Doanate to the Dennis McKinley PAC Fund

We are grateful to Diane Endres Ballweg, lead benefactor of the new Performing Arts Center, who is honoring long-time Edgewood faculty member, Dennis McKinley ’63, by naming the facility after him.  “Dennis has been a positive influence, a guiding and trusted friend, and a loyal EHS colleague for the past 50 years. Teachers don’t make a lot of money, but they make a difference in their students’ lives. His dedicated service and impact on students and faculty deserves to be recognized and honored.”

If Dennis McKinley was an influence in your life, or you have fond memories of participating in the music and theater programs, please consider making a contribution in honor of Dennis by designating your gift in the drop-down menu below.

E-Club & Edgewood Athletics Association (EAA)

Our outstanding athletic program relies on gifts, along with proceeds from the Crusader KickOff & Raffle, Wilke Golf Outing, gate receipts and other fundraisers to meet its annual budget.


Building an award-winning fine arts department requires the support and dedication of its benefactors.  Encore funds projects which promote the arts throughout the entire school and touch the lives of each of our students.
