Giving - Welcome

Academic Excellence. Faith. Community. These are the values that remain at the heart of who we are at Northside Catholic Academy. Today, we are a community of 571 students and growing. Our students come from our six parishes and the diverse neighborhoods on Chicago’s North Side. Thanks to the generous support of our donors, alumni, friends and parents, we continue to offer our children a strong foundation rooted in our Catholic values that prepares them for success in high school and beyond.

There are many ways you can support Northside Catholic Academy with your time, talents and resources. Every gift – no matter the size – brings hope and opportunity to our students. We are ever grateful for your support. Donate online today or learn more about the following ways you can support NCA.

We have two major fundraisers during the school year – the Wildcats Fun Run and the NCA Soiree.

Wildcats Fun Run
On October 21, 2016, NCA students grades PreK-8 will be running 30-35 laps to raise money for their school. Our goal is to raise $30,000 for continued improvements of academics and life safety projects at both our campuses. We asked the Fun Run experts at Boosterthon to power our Wildcats Fun Run and make it more profitable, easier, and fun. This two week fundraiser kicked off with a Pep Rally October 12. The Fun Run character theme – BACKYARD BOX OFFICE – is a movie theme all about making a difference by getting into character. Our students will learn from five REAL kid difference-makers. From inventors, to world-class speakers, to business owners, to world-record holders, these five kids will inspire our students to practice the five “Character Acts” and make a difference in our community. Help NCA students make a difference for their school! Learn how you can pledge the Wildcats Fun Run today!

NCA Soiree
The NCA Soiree raises more than $100,000 through an online auction, raffle tickets and the live event in the spring, to support the academic and facility needs of the school. Learn more on how to buy tickets or volunteer your time and talents for the NCA Soiree April 22, 2017.

The Guardian Angel Scholarship Fund helps to ensure that a quality Catholic education is available to all families in our community. The spirit of volunteerism is part of what makes NCA such a vibrant community. There are many opportunities for volunteers at our school and parishes, and other easy ways to support NCA.

Thank you for your support in helping NCA continue to be the premier regional Catholic school on Chicago’s North Side.
