O'Hara Giving & Fundraisers
Department of Advancement
God has blessed O'Hara with generous contributors through the area parishes, our families, alumni, and community-centered organizations. It is through the support of these constituencies that we are able to make the joys of learning come alive every day at O'Hara Catholic School, allowing us in turn to serve our neighbors and others. There are many ways — not just financial — that you can help O'Hara continue its mission to prepare students to strive for excellence spiritually, academically, physically and socially, and to be life-long learners with strong Catholic values. Thank you for prayerfully considering how you might share your time, talent and treasure with O'Hara Catholic School.
GIVING TUESDAY 2020.....THANK YOU, O'HARA.
Today is Giving Tuesday. Formally, Giving Tuesday is a growing international movement that follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and encourages people to give to causes and charities close to their hearts.
However, this year, we’re turning Giving Tuesday upside down. As a school community that includes students, parents, grandparents, alumni, staff, friends, donors and more, you have given O’Hara so much this year.
So, today, on Giving Tuesday 2020, we simply want to give you our thanks….
Thank you, O’Hara students, for your eternal optimism, resilience, joy and youth. You inspire us each and every day. You are why we do what we do.
Thank you, O’Hara parents, for your trust, flexibility, patience and dedication to your students. Parenting school-aged children in 2020 has presented logistical challenges, difficult choices and exhaustion on an unprecedented level. Nothing about this year has been easy, and yet, we see you show up for your students and for O’Hara each and every day. Your commitment to, and faith in, O’Hara are extraordinary.
Thank you, O’Hara staff, for giving our students and families your very best. The extra hours, miles of patience, spirit of flexibility and effort you put forth is incredible. Teaching in 2020 forced you to completely relearn how to do your jobs overnight, and you rose to the challenge in epic fashion. You continue to work tirelessly on behalf of our students and O’Hara continues to thrive because of you.
Thank you, O’Hara grandparents, alumni and friends. Your emails and social media messages of encouragement are bright lights and lift our spirits. Your behind the scenes support of our students, families and staff continue to bless us and your prayers are felt. Our school community is richer and more vibrant because of your presence.
Thank you, O’Hara donors….a category that includes many of you listed above. Opening a school during a pandemic has been an expensive endeavor with seemingly impossible timelines. And yet, we made it happen. To each and every one of you who made a contribution of time, expertise, in-kind goods/services or financial support, we cannot begin to thank you enough. Since March, at every twist and turn, we have been blessed by offers of help and assistance, and the generosity of our donors has been astounding.
Twenty Twenty has been quite a year. And then some. Yet, amidst all of the trials and difficulties, we have also experienced the very best of people. We have seen you lift each other up, take care of one another, love one another and continue to cultivate and strengthen our community. Because of this, O’Hara is stronger than ever, and we continue to be richly blessed.
Thank you for being a part of our story.
Thank you for your continued support.
