Our fourth annual Day of Giving, a 24-hour fundraising challenge in support of the O'Hara Fund, will run on Wednesday, May 9. All gifts made on May 9, 2018 between 12:00 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. will count toward O'Hara's Day of Giving. Your donation, no matter the size, makes a huge impact on the lives of our students, and helps us continue to develop students of character, competence and confidence.
Why do we need to have an O'Hara Fund? Isn’t tuition enough?
Most private and parochial schools charge less in tuition than the actual cost of running the school with the anticipation that fundraising will bridge the gap. At O'Hara, the actual cost of educating each student is thousands of dollars more than the tuition charged. O'Hara provides our students with an outstanding education while at the same time keeping tuition considerably lower than area private schools.
The O'Hara Fund provides additional dollars to our operational budget that enriches and enhances our program beyond what is possible by tuition dollars alone. We invite and encourage each member of our community (parents, board members, staff/faculty, alumni, grandparents, friends, businesses, etc.) to generously support the O'Hara Fund.
Help Us Reach Our Goal!
Reaching our financial goal takes everyone’s involvement. That means everyone is invited to participate at some level of giving. Please remember that all O'Hara Fund donations are fully tax deductible.

Do matching gifts count toward O'Hara's Day of Giving goal and match?
Yes. If you give $100 on Wednesday and your employer matches your gift with $100, you just contributed $200 toward our goal.

Spread the word! Post on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram and use the hashtag #LionsGive. Let your family, friends and fellow alumni know that you made a gift and encourage them to do the same.

The 2017-18 O’Hara Fund is coming to a close on Thursday, June 30 and we need your help to reach our goal. To date, we have raised nearly $330,000 of our $500,000 goal! This is thanks to the generosity of alumni, parents, past parents, faculty, staff, students and other friends.
We are so close to our goal. Just think:
  • If each alum donated just $25, we could raise more than $750,000!
  • If every current and past parent donated just $25, we could bring that total to more than one million dollars!
You can help by making a gift online at www.cohs.com/donate or by sending a check payable to Cardinal O’Hara High School, Office of Institutional Advancement, 1701 S. Sproul Road, Springfield, PA 19064.
For your gift to be included in the 2017-18 O’Hara Fund, it must be postmarked on or before Thursday, June 30 or made online before midnight on June 30.
