The Knight Fund


Bishop O'Connell's 2021-2022 Knight Fund theme is GRATITUDE. We are grateful for the generosity of a community that continues to give its time, talents and treasures to strengthen Catholic education. Each success at Bishop O'Connell—whether in the classroom, in a fine arts studio or on the playing field—is made possible by the kindness of our families, our alumni and our extended O'Connell community. Thank you for investing in the future of Bishop O'Connell.

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 can continue its fine tradition of providing an outstanding Catholic education where honesty, compassion, and respect are integral to every student's time at O'Connell.

Gifts to the Knight Fund allow Bishop O'Connell to invest in innovative academic and co-curricular programs, hands-on learning, strengthen our college counseling program and provide professional development opportunities for our faculty and staff.

Most importantly, tuition alone only doesn't cover the cost of a Bishop O'Connell education. Knight Fund contributions help bridge the critical $1,600 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.
