The Bishop McNamara Fund to help support the education of BMHS students

The Bishop McNamara Fund remains the primary means for members of the Bishop McNamara family to join together in a meaningful effort to support our mission to educate hearts and minds in a dynamic, inclusive Catholic school community rooted in the Holy Cross tradition.  

Bishop McNamara prides itself on giving any deserving student an extraordinary college-preparatory education that prepares them to meet the demands of higher education, contribute to society, and answer the call “to think with Christ,” a motto coined by Bishop John M. McNamara himself.

All gifts to the Bishop McNamara Fund impact the school’s ability to enhance its standards of excellence in student development, teaching, and facilities and helps Bishop McNamara High School flourish each year.  Your gift to the Bishop McNamara Fund upholds the spirit of philanthropy that since 1964 has sustained this School .
