Congratulations to our $10K Raffle Winner!

Congratulations to our $10K Raffle Winner!

A big congratulations to Andrew Kleiman for winning the $10,000 top cash prize of the Bushelman Friends of CISE Raffle at the Party at the Pitch on April 12!

Andrew and his wife Barbara are truly thrilled to witness the impactful progress CISE is making in the inner-city community, and they wholeheartedly endorse CISE’s commitment to providing education and wrap-around services for children.

Andrew’s upbringing instilled in him the values of generosity and helping others. Seeing his parents make sacrifices to send him to Catholic schools taught him the importance of giving back. Since discovering CISE in 2002, Andrew has been a steadfast supporter, making his first donation that year. His dedication extended to supporting programs like the Weekend Food Program in 2016, and he’s been actively involved in the Bushelman Friends of CISE raffle and annual campaign.

A heartfelt thank you to Andrew and Barbara for their unwavering support of CISE and its vital mission!

CISE Quarterly Welcome

From Phil McHugh

Welcome to the CISE Quarterly! In an effort to keep you informed of all the activities at CISE, we are pleased to share our first newsletter. Each quarter, you can look forward to receiving our newsletter with stories from the CISE schools, spotlights featuring our donors, sponsors, and board members, updates from the CISE office, stories in the news, and more. 

This past year has been full of success for CISE! Our 2022 campaign raised over $4,000,000. We launched our CISE – Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO) to allow our donors to receive an Ohio Income tax credit. Most significantly, we received a pledge of $50,000,000 from Harry and Linda Fath to support our high school scholarship and support services programs. Truly, we are blessed at CISE. (Read more below about each of these great pieces of news.)

We have a record number of CISE elementary school graduates attending a local Catholic high school. For the 2022-2023 academic year, over 400 scholars will continue their Catholic, values-based education in a Catholic high school. Many thanks to our high school partners who support us in our mission.

Finally, we welcome two new members to our CISE team. Debi Haines has joined us in the role of Director of Marketing & Communications. Debi will focus on increasing the awareness of CISE. 

Kelly Camm has joined us as Director of Development as we desire to build a deeper relationship with our donors. Please welcome Debi and Kelly to our team.

Thanks to all of you who support our mission. We are making a difference in the lives of the children we serve.
