Please help us reach our goal and be a part of the future success of our students.
What is the Annual Fund?
The Annual Fund (AF) is a key element of the Development Program at Bishop McGuinness. 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.
For 2018-2019 The Annual Fund dollars will support two endeavors: Tuition Assistance and Endowment.
With the support of our alumni, parents and friends we hope to raise $100,000 for the Annual Fund! In addition to growing the school’s endowment, your contributions will be used to provide tuition assistance to families in need.

How Are Annual Fund Dollars Used?
Funds raised through the Triad Area Catholic Schools Education Foundation or any other fundraising efforts at the school, including events supported by parent organizations, are allocated to specific needs that are identified by the administration and the Resource Coordinating Committee of the BMCHS Board of Education. Such needs can include tuition assistance, capital and technology improvements, faculty and staff bonuses and development programs, athletic field improvements, endowments, and other programs and activities that directly impact the lives of our students.
When Are Annual Fund Gifts Due?
The Bishop McGuinness Annual Fund is a year-round effort that incorporates every fundraising aspect of the school’s development program. The TRACS Education Foundation giving campaign runs from the beginning of the school year until June 30 of the following year. You can make your gift at any time during the course of the school year.
