Donate to Day of Giving

Thursday, November 4th, 2021 is our fourth annual Day of Giving. Every dollar raised will greatly impact our students and school. We are so grateful for your support!
What is the Day of Giving? 
Bishop's Day of Giving is a 24-hour drive to raise money for The Fund for Bishop. It will take place on November 4th from 12:01 a.m until 11:59 p.m. We are excited to see the whole Bishop community, past, present, and future, come out to participate in this exciting event in support of the Cardinals.  

What is the Fund for Bishop?
All donations received on the Day of Giving will go to The Fund for Bishop Diego. This is our annual fund and is the source of our unrestricted dollars that support the most immediate and critical needs of our school. Our annual fund bridges the gap between tuition and the actual cost of a superior Bishop education-- a difference of nearly 2 million dollars. Because we are an independent school, we do not receive funding from the government, nor the archdiocese. Therefore, we rely on donations from alumni, parents, grandparents, and friends of Bishop. Your generosity allows every corner of this campus to be impacted, from our faculty and staff to curriculum improvements, science and art programs, technology advancements, faith development, general operations and more. Your gift allows us to fulfill our mission of helping the young men and women of Santa Barbara realize their God-given potential. When you partner with us financially, know that you are #BlessingBishop today and for generations to come.
Why should I give?
There are many reasons to give to Bishop! Giving is a great way to honor Bishop for what it has given to you. Perhaps it was the teacher who inspired you, who nurtured your passion or gave you a new way to view the world. Maybe it’s the lifelong friendships, your bridesmaids or groomsmen, your current spouse, or your former teammates. Or, maybe it was your relationship with the Lord and your own spiritual journey. As a parent, perhaps it’s the way Bishop supported and cared for your child during their formative years. No matter what your "why" is, when you give, you allow someone else to experience all that Bishop has to offer.
What impact will my money have?
There is no gift too small (or too large!) to make an impact for us here at Bishop Diego. Below are a few of our special initiatives. Your gift will directly impact our students, teachers, and community in many ways.

How else can I support Bishop?
