The Office of Advancement is proud to oversee a growing number of named endowment funds that have been established to provide financial assistance to students who wish to attend Bishop Moore Catholic. Each year a defined portion of the fund is awarded while the principal investment is held “in perpetuity” so that the vision of the donors will continue to make a difference at BMC. These funds have been established by alumni, parents, & friends of our school.
