Annual Fund Dinner: August 28, 2024

This is our biggest fundraising event of the year and is often referred to as the favorite event of the year for our parents, alumni, and friends. It offers a wonderful opportunity to join together in celebration and in generosity for the good of all Bishop Chatard High School. The evening’s program allows a glimpse into life as a Trojan and includes the recognition of our outstanding community members who have continually supported Bishop Chatard.

The Annual Fund Dinner and Achievement Awards Celebration, kicking off the 2024-25 Annual Fund Drive, is Wednesday, August 28, 2024.

BCHS was pleased to host over 650 people at the 2023 event, raising $843,964 to support tuition assistance and teacher compensation. Thank you to all who so generously donated.

It’s not too late to add your support through a donation! See the details below.

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. In 2022-2023, your gifts will provide tuition assistance for 55% of our students.

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.
