The non-profit Bishop Kelly Foundation was created more than 40 years ago to support the values and objectives of Bishop Kelly High School. The Foundation's principal goal has been to provide funding — for scholarships and operations — that will keep Bishop Kelly's standards and quality at the highest level.
This year, the Foundation has provided more than $470,000 to support the school. These funds were derived from the proceeds of the Foundation's annual fundraiser, the Winner's Choice dinner and auction, from income received from the endowment fund, and from private donations. In addition, the Foundation has provided $440,000 this year in need-based financial aid to students at Bishop Kelly. This aid comes from gifts and memorials to our various scholarship funds, income from endowed scholarships, and from donations made during the Fund-A-Scholar portion of the Winner’s Choice Auction.
The sole beneficiary of the Bishop Kelly Foundation is Bishop Kelly High School. By contributing to the Bishop Kelly Foundation, you are directly benefiting the school and helping BK keep tuition affordable to those who wish to attend.
There is more work to be done, and the Bishop Kelly Foundation stands ready to assist the school with its growing needs. Please consider being a part of Bishop Kelly’s future by contributing to the Bishop Kelly Foundation.
