Annual Giving - The Knight Fund
#GivingTuesday was a great success and we thank all of our families who have participated in the Knight Fund to date!
THE KNIGHT FUND
The Bishop O'Connell Annual Fund has been re-named the Knight Fund. This year's Knight Fund goal is $360,000 and 1,000 donors! All unrestricted gifts made from July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2015, are counted toward our goal. Every gift, no matter the size, is important! The O'Connell legacy of outstanding academics and proud traditions is kept strong through the tax-deductible financial contributions of our alumni, parents, faculty and friends. Your donation has an immediate impact by funding the programs that provide our students with the educational tools to reach their fullest potential.
The Knight Fund is the cornerstone of annual support for Bishop O'Connell. Your contribution ensures that all students receive a superior academic experience, with top-quality educators, in a vibrant Catholic environment. The Knight Fund bridges the critical gap between what is charged in tuition and the actual cost of educating each student. Because we strive to keep tuition as affordable as possible, the actual cost to educate each student is approximately $1,500 more than is charged in tuition.
Traditionally, strong institutions have strong annual funds. An annual gift to the school's Knight Fund is a tangible vote of confidence for Catholic education and for Bishop O'Connell. Thank you for your participation and support. GO KNIGHTS!
