Parent Giving - The McDonogh Fund - McDonogh School

Parent Giving

McDonogh parents believe in building community through volunteering and giving. The generosity of our parents contributes to approximately 30% of giving to the McDonogh Fund and ensures that every student has the opportunity to experience the best that McDonogh has to offer. For more information on volunteering and supporting the McDonogh Fund, please contact Lea Ward, McDonogh Fund Officer, at or 443-544-7059.
