The Archbishop O'Hara Annual Fund
It's not too late to donate to #GivingTuesday!
O'Hara received over has received more than $17,000 in donations for our #GivingTuesday! Thank you, generous donors! AND, we're thrilled to announce that our matching gift has been extended until 12.31.18 - all donations to our Archbishop O'Hara Fund between now and the end of the year will be matched, up to $50,000 - what a great opportunity to double your #giving!
#GivingTuesday kicked-off our Archbishop O’Hara Annual Fund Appeal. In 2015, we established the Archbishop O'Hara Annual Fund dedicated to supporting the three areas we feel are a continued priority for the success of our students and our school: our building, tuition support, and technology.
This year, our greatest need is our building. The needs of our school are ever changing and growing. Due to pressing maintenance needs of our current building, we have committed to dedicating the funds from the Archbishop O'Hara Annual Fund this year to our Deferred Maintenance Program. In June, we will begin updating the cafeteria roof, east wing siding, remodeling the art room and updating our front hall restrooms.
Thanks to a very generous new donor, we are happy to announce we have a matching gift of $50,000. The first $50,000 brought in by the Archbishop O'Hara Annual Fund will be matched dollar for dollar.
We invite you to participate in #GivingTuesday, ask you to encourage your family and friends to do the same. By donating to the appeal this year, your dollars will be doubled, thanks to our matching gift.
Will you partner with us in our mission?
O’Hara Catholic School is a place where children are developed academically, physically, socially and most important, spiritually. It is not by coincidence that O’Hara (formerly St. Mary’s) has been around for over 125 years, but as a result of the high academic and Catholic value standards instilled throughout our existence. It is our hope that future generations will be able to experience the same blessings 125 years from now! And all of this happens because of our loving community.
O’Hara Catholic School, as an instrument of Christ and the Roman Catholic Church, is dedicated to developing the whole child in a secure and nurturing environment. In partnership with and as an extension of the family, we encourage our students to strive for excellence, to be life-long learners, to demonstrate strong Catholic values, and to generously serve God and others.
Your love and support have created the traditions and excellence we here at O’Hara are blessed with. It is our goal to continue this excellence for future generations. We celebrate the past, present and future with a grateful heart.
