Giving to Bishop McGuinness 

The BMCHS administration is 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, an alumni relations program and for all aspects of institutional advancement.
The 1959 Fund is the largest and most important development initiative of the year, by which we strive to obtain wide-ranging support from the parent community, alumni, alumni parents and friends.  Each year, all funds raised are spent during the current school year. Every gift, whether large or small, directly impacts each student’s educational experience.
Endowments and Planned Giving are also important aspects of institutional advancement for Bishop McGuinness. We currently have five 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 continue to provide our donors with greater opportunities for financial planning and tax advantages by making a gift to Bishop McGuinness.
