Development dollars are about “buying and selling” that mission and vision for the next fifty years.
What do we mean by development dollars? This means
that more emphasis needs to be placed on Annual and Capital
Funds. The Annual Fund is operational in that it keeps the
cost of tuition to a minimal level so that we can assure a
healthy enrollment. The Capital Fund is strategic in that it
provides finances not covered by operations. More emphasis

Archbishop Dedicates New Chapel

a modern, prayerful space for all liturgies

has always been a cornerstone of an Alter education. Today, with
so many competing events for our time, it’s a challenge to find
time to re-charge our batteries. If we, however, want to remain
true to God’s call to serve one another, why not do that as part of
an Alumni Day of Service? If we selected a day every year for
alumni groups or individuals to help in their communities, it would
be a powerful testimony to living out our Catholic faith that was
fortified at Alter. By gathering together, much like singing the alma
mater, we could help others by giving our spare time to their needs.

In looking at recent Roundtable editions, I saw alumni caring for
infants in Romania and children in Africa, riding bikes for charitable
causes, and others helping worthwhile causes. In this issue, there
are documentaries of families helping in Guatemala, alumni helping promote the arts, and alumni priests who, according to several,
heard God’s call to the priesthood while a student at Alter.
The alumni I met this summer in Lexington, Chicago, and
Columbus, those I met with on campus this summer to discuss alumni relations, and, most recently, those who visited our
Advancement Booth at AlterFest, all shared similar comments:

Class of 2014 Sets Standard
A cornerstone of Alter High School and a primary reason that
the school has flourished for years, is the amount of graduates
who continue to enroll their children in a school that played such
a vital part in shaping their own lives. This year, however, raised
the bar! Fifty-five children of former Knights make up one-third
of the class of 2014. This marks the largest legacy class in Alter’s
This certainly speaks volumes about the quality of the education at Alter and the bond that so many develop as students, that
upon graduation so many want the same experience for their
own children.

and Alumni E-Newsletter
is Created!
We thank everyone who provided feedback on the evolution of the Roundtable and
our efforts to go green. Due to the tremendous response, we will continue producing the
Roundtable three times per year, but will begin to reduce the size of it, thus saving paper
and postage.
Between mailings however, a new and exciting means of keeping alums informed has
been born! The first edition of “The Chancery” found its way to in-boxes the middle of
August via Constant Contact, bringing timely information and interesting stories to our
graduates regularly.
If you did not receive The Chancery, but would like to start, please send your email
address to [email protected] Look for the next
edition coming on October 15th!
