Ways To Give

The O'Hara Fund
The O'Hara Fund is the cornerstone of giving to Cardinal O'Hara High School. The fund comprises unrestricted giving from all sources that support all school programs and activities. Teacher salaries, scholarship aid, technology, building maintenance and improvements are all funded in part by annual giving.  Without a vibrant O'Hara Fund, tuition would have to be raised to support these programs, thus the annual fund enables the school to keep tuition at an affordable level for Delaware County area families.
