Capital Campaign

Bishop Nickless was present for our ground-breaking on Monday, August 18, 2014.

We have great news to share about the Bishop Garrigan capital campaign.  We have now surpassed $3 million in pledges!  It is amazing to see the support and generosity of the Bishop Garrigan community.  

As we continue the campaign, our focus will be on these three goals:

  • We are currently asking area businesses and organizations to make a pledge or donation to the campaign.  This will be on-going for the next several months.

  • The amount of cash on-hand will be the major determinant in when we can break ground.  Per diocesan requirements and recommendations, the school board will determine the minimum cash on-hand needed to break ground.  Our focus going forward will be collecting on the current pledges, and encouraging donors to make early pledge payments whenever possible.

  • Last year, many donors made one-time gifts (rather than pledges) and asked to be contacted each year about making a gift.  We will contact this group of donors in the fall and are hopeful that their generosity will be repeated this year.

THANK YOU for all you do for Bishop Garrigan Schools!

The Bishop Garrigan Schools have begun an exciting campaign called "Continuing the Tradition ... Expanding the Vision" which will help our school remain strong well into the future.  There are three main goals of the campaign:

  • Building Project - a state-of-the-art gymnasium, together with additional classroom space and offices ($2,000,000)

  • Staff Endowment - to retain the finest instructors and continue our academic excellence ($1,000,000)

  • Tuition Assistance & Facilities Funds - to increase enrollment and maintain and modernize our facilities ($1,000,000)
