2017/18 Bishop Chatard Annual Fund Drive

Annual Fund Drive 2017 Moments Build Momentum

When you pay attention to the 'moments' and absorb the goodness and energy as it builds - you will feel the strength in our 'momentum'.


Every donor to the BCHS Annual Fund Drive can be confident that Bishop Chatard remains unwavering in its mission to provide an outstanding and authentic Catholic educational experience to all North Deanery students who seek it.

Our 2017-18 Annual Fund Drive, 'Moments Build Momentum', focuses on Bishop Chatard's paramount financial commitments, allowing Bishop Chatard to make this momentum building even stronger: tuition assistance and teacher compensation.

42% of our students are given the opportunity to attend BCHS through tuition assistance. Our teacher compensation program has been able to attract and retain some of the finest teachers in our school's history.

How to Donate Directly to the Fund Drive

Donations to the Annual Fund can be made at any time throughout the year, in several ways:

  • Through a SGO (towards tuition assistance): Donate to the Institute for Quality Education, a scholarship granting organization (SGO) and designate Bishop Chatard in your donation. BCHS will receive your funds for tuition assistance for BCHS students. Check out how you can receive 50% of your donation as an Indiana state tax credit, giving you even more reason to increase your donation to Bishop Chatard.
