Join us for Foundation Forum Sharing

A Foundation Sharing Forum will be hosted by Catalina High School Foundation (CHSF) on March 13, 2015, from 9 AM to 2 PM at Metropolitan Education Commission 930 E. Broadway.

Several years ago we had a successful and interesting forum with many of our region’s high school foundations. Schools still are hard-pressed to provide effective classroom programs which supplement and enrich, beyond the required ABC’s. Teachers are still using personal funds to provide classroom necessities and supplies for their students. (more…)

Help us meet our $5,000 Band Challenge Grant

The Catalina High School Foundation has received a $5,000 challenge grant, The Last Chair Tuba Player Fund, from an alum that requires that we raise matching funds to receive the grant. Your help is very much needed!

The Catalina High School Band offers students an opportunity to create a strong high school memory while participating in an activity. The Tucson Unified School District lacks the funds to support a true band program at the school and the student body is one of the poorest in the city. This combined donation would make a huge difference for many students as well as generating student spirit and improving morale.

“I am so excited to think of all the new opportunities that would be available to the CHS Band with this donation” – Robert Troglia, CHS Band Director

We must raise $5,000 by March 15, 2015 in order to receive the challenge grant. Please help by donating as soon as you can. The Catalina High School Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization, and your donations are tax deductible. You can donate two ways:

  • Send a check made out to CHSF, noting it is for the Band Challenge, and mail to 6740 N. Calle Lomita Tucson, AZ 85704
  • Make a donation through PayPal on our website, click here to go to the Donate page
    • Click the Donate button
    • Click the Add Special Instructions button and note Band Challenge

Please help us by passing this on to other alumni who might be interested in donating. For any questions you can contact us.

Thank you for your support of this great project. With your help, CHS students will soon be stomping their feet to the strains of the Trojan Band!
