The BMCHS Board of Education and the school's administration are determined to keep tuition levels as affordable as possible. Currently, the tuition covers only 80% of the total cost of educating a student at Bishop McGuinness; therefore, we must raise funds over and above tuition in order to maintain the level of excellence we all expect and to provide our students with enrichment experiences that extend far beyond academics.
The Advancement Office at Bishop McGuinness is responsible for the planning, organization, coordination and implementation of the school’s development program, including fundraising, public relations, and alumni relations program- in short, for all aspects of institutional advancement.
A key element of the development program is the Annual Fund (AF). This fund is supported by the Triad Catholic Schools Foundation. The Foundation is the mechanism through which Bishop McGuinness raises and allocates supplemental funds originated from the campaign. The AF is the largest and most important development project of the year, by which we strive to obtain wide-ranging support from the parent community, alumni, alumni parents and friends.
Endowments and Planned Giving are also important aspects of institutional advancement for Bishop McGuinness. We currently have three endowments which are fully funded by Bishop families, alumni, alumni parents and other donors that support the school. As we move forward with our development efforts, we will be implementing a planned giving program that will provide our donors with greater opportunities for financial planning and tax advantages by making a gift to Bishop McGuinness.
