The Annual Fund
Together as the Bishop O'Connell community, we can reach our Annual Fund goal, one gift at a time...and NOW is the time. The FY2014 Annual Fund ends June 30, 2014.
We are close. The DJO constituency, comprised of alumni, their families, our current families, faculty and friends, since 1957, surpasses 17,000. 750 people giving a $100 gift will push us over the goal! Please help us wrap up the 2013-2014 Annual Fund and reach our goal of $350,000.
The Annual Fund is the cornerstone of support for Bishop O'Connell. Your contribution ensures that all students receive a superior college-prep academic experience, with top-quality educators, in a vibrant Catholic environment, and speaks to your confidence in and support of Catholic education.
Many gifts of all sizes make a BIG IMPACT: 1500 gifts of $50...please support the Annual Fund to the best of YOUR ability today. Thank you for your support, GO KNIGHTS!

WHAT IS THE ANNUAL FUND?
Tuition alone does not cover the cost of educating our students, and Bishop O'Connell is dependent upon the generosity of our donors to ensure the quality of virtually every aspect of school life. Gifts to the Annual Fund support the school's mission and Catholic identity, build our community, provide essential financial resources and contribute to an outstanding education for all students.
Annual Fund gifts come from across our community--alumni, parents, Board of Governors members, faculty and staff, vendors, and friends of Bishop O'Connell High School. These unrestricted donations are used to:
• Provide faculty enrichment programs
• Improve technology and classroom resources
• Enhance the programs and services offered to the students
• Increase our scholarship and tuition assistance funds
Traditionally, strong institutions have strong annual funds. An annual gift to the school remains a tangible vote of confidence in the total school program.
Gifts may be made online or mailed directly to the Advancement Office at:
Bishop O'Connell High School
6600 Little Falls Road
Arlington, VA 22213
Attention: Annual Fund
