PHOENIX, AZ (September 15th, 2022) – Catholic Education Arizona is keeping good company with its 2022 Rank #7 in Culture/Education organizations in Arizona, next to Desert Botanical Garden and Boys & Girls Clubs of the Valley.

Each year the Phoenix Business Journal Ranks the top Non-profit organizations overall and in select categories from around the valley. The list ranks nonprofits based on their 2021-2022 budget but also includes the data points of the number of local full-time employees, number of local part-time employees, number of 2021 local volunteers, top local executive, and board chair. During the fiscal year of 2021 Catholic Education Arizona raised $23.67 million and eleven total employees. This year CEA came in just below the Desert Botanical Garden and just above the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Valley.
