$1 Million Anonymous Donation

Jun 13, 2018

An anonymous benefactor generously donated $1 million to the Campaign for Christendom. The gift will go specifically to the restoration of the Sacred Heart window, located above the main altar in the current Chapel, in addition to sponsoring a brand new stained-glass window of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque.

Cherishing a deep devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the benefactor views the image as a powerful reminder that Christ redeemed the world with His Body and Blood, and that all people should bring their sufferings, sins, joys, and thanksgivings to Jesus. Motivated by Christ’s sacrifice and constant showering of blessings, the benefactor wishes to give back and show gratitude by helping others, especially young students. This generous gift to the new Christ the King Chapel will inspire devotion and holiness in the souls of countless Christendom students, having a great impact on future generations of Catholic leaders.

This gift brings the total funds raised for the campaign to over $38 million, leaving just $2 million more to go to complete the Campaign for Christendom. The ambitious $40 million campaign is helping to raise funds for the new chapel, the college’s endowment, and the annual fund.
