Bishop Chatard friends and families were invited to celebrate and support BCHS at our Annual Fund Dinner, our biggest fundraiser to support tuition assistance and teacher compensation.

The 2019/2020 Annual Fund Dinner was held on Wednesday, August 28, 2019.

It was a great celebration of blessings and accomplishments. Bishop Chatard High School was pleased to host a record crowd of over 700 people, raising $626,187 to support Catholic education. On behalf of the students, faculty, staff and administration of Bishop Chatard High School, thank you for your generosity.

Annual Fund Donations

We invite you to join us in our commitment to our students and teachers with a gift to our 2019-20 Annual Fund. Please know we are appreciative of any amount you are able to contribute to Bishop Chatard this year.

You may want to consider a gift to Bishop Chatard through the Scholarship Granting Organization, the Institute for Quality Education (IQE). A gift to Bishop Chatard thru IQE, or a gift directly to Bishop Chatard, both will qualify you for a charitable federal tax deduction. Both support our Annual Fund campaign When you give to BCHS through IQE you qualify for the Indiana 50% tax credit.

When you make a gift to the Annual Fund, you provide the opportunity for all our students to learn and fully engage in an authentically Catholic environment. Focused on the growth of the whole person, Bishop Chatard prepares students for a life-long commitment to faith, learning, leadership, and service. Your gift provides tuition assistance for 46% of our students that otherwise would not have been able to attend Bishop Chatard High School.

Additionally, Bishop Chatard is able to attract and retain some of the most dynamic and impressive teachers from around the state. Our Catholic Educator Advancement Program (CEAP), developed to encourage and justly compensate our teachers, continues to grow, helping bridge the gap between public school and Catholic school compensation.
