Lasallian Spirit, Family & Loyalty

That’s the heart of the Archbishop O’Hara Lasallian Education Fund formerly known as the Annual Fund. For almost 40 years, financial support has been driven by the generous spirit of the O’Hara family. Each and every gift made from the O’Hara family – alumni, parents, friends, students, faculty, and staff – has generated much-needed funds for some of the school’s most critical needs: scholarships, professional development, new educational materials, campus renovations, and much, much more.

Virtually no aspect of Archbishop O’Hara High School has been left untouched by annual fund support. The annual fund now called the Lasallian Education Fund honors the Lasallian spirit of our Celtic tradition. The many gifts that are given each year reflect the passion and loyalty of the O’Hara family – to continue the Lasallian educational experience for our students.

Yes, these are difficult times – $4 per gallon gas, higher food costs and a challenging economy. Over the years, the O’Hara Family has faced many trials and tribulations such as slow economic growth, inflation, and oil shortages and embargoes. Somehow, some way, sacrifices were made and the Lasallian spirit lived on.

It doesn’t take a huge donation to have a big impact. When taken together, gifts to the Lasallian Education Fund, whether $5 or $5,000, comprise one of the school’s most significant sources of support. Your gift will provide educational excellence in the Celtic tradition.

Every gift matters. Make yours today and continue the Celtic tradition.
