Headmaster’s Club

Headmasters Club

Headmaster's Club members have an immediate impact on Chesterton Academy with their extraordinary generosity.

Welcome. The Headmaster’s Club is Chesterton Academy’s donor appreciation society. It includes parents,
grandparents, businesses, and friends who believe in a joyfully Catholic, classical education.
Headmaster's Club members have an immediate impact on Chesterton Academy with their extraordinary
generosity, starting with annual gifts of $5,000+. They support the school financially, and also pray for us and invite
others to visit our gala, a school play, and daily Mass.

Memberships can renew annually with a qualifying financial gift. To make a gift, please contact Tyler Blanski, our
Director of Major Gifts, at tblanski@chestertonacademy.org. We are profoundly grateful for your support!

Where would you like to have the greatest impact? To share ideas or learn more, please contact Tyler Blanski at tblanski@chestertonacademy.org. All major gifts help to subsidize our direct operations.


The gala is Chesterton Academy’s most important fundraising event, and our pre-gala matching fund is crucial to its success. Our pre-gala matching fund is a way to accelerate your gift and make the biggest impact. If you would like to join the Headmaster’s Club with a pre-gala matching gift, please contact Tyler Blanski at tblanski@chestertonacademy.org.
