Annual Giving - The Knight Fund


The Knight Fund (formerly the Bishop O'Connell Annual Fund), is dedicated to funding the exceptional academic programs that tuition alone does not cover.  This year's Knight Fund goal is $360,000 and 1,000 donors!  All unrestricted gifts made between July 1, 2014 and June 30, 2015 are put to use right away and counted toward our goal.  Every gift, no matter the size, is important!  The O'Connell legacy of outstanding academics and vibrant community 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 lively 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!
