A PROUD LEGACY. A VISION FOR THE FUTURE
These are exciting times at O’Hara Catholic School with the launch of our A Proud Legacy. A Vision for the Future. Capital Campaign. This campaign marks the culmination of years of planning, prayer and hard work to develop a long-range vision for our facilities. Our planning goals are to preserve and update our 70-year-old building, create a 21st century learning environment, increase student safety, and carry on a special sense of pride in our facilities for generations to come.
The 2019 campaign assessment demonstrated that addressing deferred maintenance and care for existing facilities is a high priority. With that in mind, school leadership established tiers, starting with funding of the maintenance projects. Taking care of Tier 1 will address the deferred maintenance list and ensure that the bones of the building will be good for another 50+ years. The next tiers reflect short- and long-term facility plans, and those projects will be completed as funds are available.
You will see that our initial focus is to fund our deferred maintenance projects at $3 million. This is consistent with our commitment to leave this school building in better shape than we inherited it.
Our goal is to raise $3 million over the next three years to fund the first tier of our master plan vision:
For this effort to succeed, we need the help of many. We are reaching out to all O’Hara constituents including current and past parents, alumni, grandparents, friends, local businesses and foundations.
At O’Hara, we pride ourselves in community, building strong relationships, and seeking inspiration from the Lord to face difficult situations with grace and wisdom. Please consider how you can make a difference in this historic campaign to strengthen the O’Hara Catholic experience for children today and tomorrow.
