The Knight Fund

The Knight Fund is a critical source of revenue for Bishop O'Connell. Every dollar raised goes toward funding the exceptional academic programs that tuition alone cannot cover, providing our students with the educational tools to reach their fullest potential. We are grateful for every gift, no matter the size. 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.

Bridging the Gap

Every young person deserves the opportunity to have a quality Catholic education. To make this a reality, we strive to keep tuition as affordable as possible. The Knight Fund bridges the critical $1,500 gap between what is charged in tuition and the actual cost of educating each student. Gifts to the Knight Fund go directly to ensure that all students receive a superior academic experience, with top-quality educators, in a lively Catholic environment.

Keeping O'Connell Strong

Strong institutions have strong annual funds. Regular support of the Knight Fund is a tangible vote of confidence for Catholic education and for Bishop O'Connell. Your gift to the Knight Fund will ensure we are able to:

  • Expand academic and extracurricular offerings
  • Hire and retain highly skilled educators
  • Enhance technology in the classroom
