Support Boylan

Boylan Catholic High School’s Advancement Office works with the entire school community to further the school’s mission. The focus of the Advancement team is to engage donors in support of Boylan’s total program through philanthropy. Key initiatives include growing and sustaining the Annual Fund, promoting awareness and soliciting gifts to the Boylan Educational Foundation, overseeing the Boylan Open and the Green and Gold Gala, and issuing the Annual Report.

Boylan’s Annual Fund makes an immediate difference in the school’s operations and, therefore, in every student's life. It provides momentum to support the educational initiatives that tuition does not cover and is crucial to maintaining Boylan’s excellence for current and future students.

The Annual Fund has made great strides over the last several years. This progress is a direct result of the gifts given by our alumni, parents, and friends. The Annual Fund meets these critical needs: the growth of the Tuition Assistance Grant Program, which provides more than 44% of our students with tuition assistance), facility, safety, and technological enhancements, and staff development. 

The Annual Fund is the most vital component of the school's fundraising efforts. It is an opportunity for parents, alumni, and friends to make a difference in the lives of our students.

Although many donors choose to allow the school to use their gifts where they are most needed, several special programs and projects are funded through restricted gifts each year. These include gifts to endowment, need-based tuition assistance, and facilities.



On occasion, Boylan is presented with a unique gift opportunity that requires the institution to formally accept a gift before it is actually made to the school. For that reason, Boylan Catholic reserves the right to formally review any gift, regardless of its asset form, before it is receipted.
