The Knight Fund

The Knight Fund sustains excellence at Bishop O’Connell High School. With more than 1,200 parents, alumni, faculty and friends donating every year, our school is able to continue its fine tradition of providing an outstanding Catholic education where honesty, compassion, and respect are integral to every Knights days.

Gifts to the Knight Annual Fund allows Bishop O’Connell to invest in innovative academic programs, hands-on learning opportunities and professional development opportunities for our dedicated faculty and staff.

Most importantly tuition alone only doesn't cover the cost of a Bishop O’Connell education. Knight Fund contributions helps bridge the critical $1,500 gap between what is charged in tuition and the actual cost of educating each student.

Every gift adds up to create a Bishop O’Connell experience unlike any other.


Please note that the Corona Virus Aid, Relief, Economic Security (CARES) Act includes provisions related to charitable gifts made to public charities. For individuals who itemize deductions, the CARES Act allows donors to deduct up to 100% of their 2021 adjusted gross income (cash and stock gifts only). For those who take the standard deduction instead of itemizing, the bill allows donors to subtract directly from gross income up to $300 in charitable contributions (cash or stock).
