The McDonogh Fund is our annual giving program and it is the highest financial priority of the school each year. Gifts support nearly every aspect of a McDonogh education and enrich the intellectual, social, and personal development of every student.
The tradition of philanthropy at McDonogh began with its founding and continues today. The standard of excellence in a McDonogh education is directly attributable to the collective effort and steadfast generosity of alumni, parents, trustees, parents of alumni, grandparents, faculty and staff, foundations, and friends who contribute every year.
The annual gift is the first and foremost gift every community member should make to support McDonogh. While we prepare the campus for the future through capital campaigns, we cannot neglect today’s students, their needs, or the necessities required to run the school.
The McDonogh Fund provides 5% of the annual operating budget. Growing The McDonogh Fund is critical to ensuring the widest possible range of learning opportunities and providing the educational experience we promise to families.
Gifts to The McDonogh Fund help support the operating costs of the school and cover a wide range of needs, such as faculty salaries; scholarships; academic, arts, and athletic programming; technology; student activities; and campus maintenance.
