Ways to Give

The vision of Bishop O'Gorman Catholic Schools is to be a Christ-centered community providing a financially viable, world class education for an increasing number of children. We need the help of alumni, current families and supporters to make this vision a reality. Your personal donation is a powerful expression of your faith, vision and generosity. Please consider making a donation to Bishop O'Gorman Catholic Schools in one of the following areas:


December 3, 2019 is "Giving Tuesday": a day to give back to organizations that have a special meaning to you. The Bishop O'Gorman Catholic Schools Foundation will be honoring our teachers by celebrating "Tuesday for Teachers"! This day will be a day to thank all of our teachers for their hard work and dedication. You can donate now through the months of October and November and it will go towards our "Tuesday for Teachers" on December 3!

Please consider contributing to our greatest assets, our staff…the people who make our mission come to life each and every day in our schools. The Teacher and Staff Salary Initiative is a fundraising effort to reward staff for the important work that they are doing. Each year Bishop O'Gorman Catholic Schools needs to fundraise at least $500,000 to directly impact salaries. By donating to this cause we are able to retain and recruit quality teachers and staff.

Each year Bishop O'Gorman Catholic Schools awards more than $1.4 million in tuition assistance to families in all eight of our schools. No family receives full tuition for their children, but more families would enroll if they had just a little bit of help.

  Donate Now!  


Passing on the gift… This program is designed to help students both now and in the future. When you sign up we will deduct just $10 per month (or more if you choose) from your bank account for a total annual tuition assistance gift of $120. As alumni, this is an easy affordable way for us to pass on the gift of Catholic education that we received.

The composite photos in the hallways at O’Gorman High School have become a staple for the building. Whether you graduated 50 years ago or a year ago, everyone loves to find their picture in the halls of O'Gorman. Over the years, the older composites have suffered significant wear and tear. To keep them around for years to come and in good condition, we have created a fund to restore the composites. 

To help keep the history of O’Gorman High School alive in our hallways, please consider donating to the fund. Our goal is to raise $19,000 to restore more than 38 individual class composites. For any questions you may have, please contact Alumni & Communications Specialist Malorie Adamson at madamson@ogknights.org.
