The Archbishop O'Hara Annual Fund
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.
As a school, we have identified three areas that we feel are a priority. We work hard as a school to be able to give the students an advantage by educating them with the most recent technological advances. We also provide the students with a safe, nurturing and faith-filled environment; but with a school building that is 65 years old, we have our challenges. Though we are ever mindful of keeping the cost of tuition affordable, there are those in our community that need the help with tuition assistance.
To specifically address these three areas, in the fall of 2015, we established
The Archbishop O’Hara Annual Fund.
An annual fund that will help provide technology and classroom advances.
An annual fund that will keep our building safe and provide the ability to put away for a “rainy day.”
An annual fund that will help families with tuition support, making our school accessible to all.
We appreciate your continued support of O'Hara Catholic School and ask you to please consider a gift to the Archbishop O'Hara Annual Fund. Last year, our generous benefactors gave over $20,000 to the Annual Fund. With this, we were able to fund additional scholarships for O'Hara families and upgrade our wifi access across the building, giving our students and teachers faster access to learning.
Our goal this year is to raise $30,000 and we invite you to consider a gift to the Annual Fund. We hope to have 100% family participation, no matter the gift size, allowing us to continue to fulfill the mission of O'Hara Catholic School.
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.
