Opportunities to Support

Many of our events and giving programs are designed to support specific programs throughout the school. If you are interested in supporting a particular area of need, please consider the following:

Endowment

Bishop Dunne offers donors an opportunity to honor or memorialize friends and families with a named Legacy Scholarship. The family may choose the criteria for the student who is to receive this scholarship or it may choose to have no restrictions at all. The Legacy Scholarship is aimed at assisting students in financial need now and in the future with 50% of the donation going towards the current tuition assistance program and the other 50% being placed in the Bishop Dunne Endowment Fund for future use.

Annual Events

Golf Tournament

The Bishop Dunne Golf Tournament is an annual event held on the first Monday of April. The day includes golf, food and refreshments, along with a chance to bid on silent and live auction items. Prizes are awarded to the top three teams, the longest drive, and closest to the pin. Proceeds from this event benefit the school’s athletic programs.

The 13th Annual Bishop Dunne Golf Classic will be held Monday, April 4, 2016, at Stevens Park Gold Course in Oak Cliff.

Sounds of Bishop Dunne Concert

The Sounds of Bishop Dunne concert is a night filled with music, dance and celebration, featuring student, faculty and alumni talent that will leave you in awe. Proceeds from this concert benefit the school’s fine arts program.

Bishop Dunne Funne Runne
Bishop Dunne Funne Runne and 5K Road Race is an annual event that benefits the Gladys Barrientos Memorial Scholarship Fund. The road race begins at 8:00 a.m. in front of the school and makes its way around the surrounding areas. Participants come from all over the metroplex and have a great time either competing or jogging at their own pace.

Every year, we ask for volunteers and sponsors to help in many different ways: monetary donations, donations of Gatorade, bottled water and fruit, assisting with race day setup, registration and cleanup, contact information of possible donors or sponsors who would like to help or participate.

Educational Programs

GeoTech Lecture Series and Conference

The GeoTech mission is to provide a forum to inspire and motivate grade K-12 educators to teach about the Earth – its structure, societies, environments, and their interplay, using a wide range of technologies. The unifying theme of the conference is exploration beyond the classroom and instructional technology. The primary goal of the conference is to make a difference in the lives of the students, the community, and to enhance the work of all educators at the local, state, and national level. The conference is now in its 28th year. Click here to learn more about GeoTech at Bishop Dunne.

SOAR
The SOAR (Student Outreach And Readiness) is staffed by specialist teachers and mentors who assist students with time management, organization, grade tracking, tutorials, and communications. SOAR teachers are available each afternoon to work with students.

College Ready Academy

The College Ready Academy for first-generation college students at Bishop Dunne Catholic School is modeled after the University Leadership Network at the University of Texas at Austin. The College Ready Academy is a two-year program designed to improve the college graduation rate for students who will be first-generation college students. College Ready Academy includes monthly sessions for students, parent engagement meetings, service-learning, financial literacy, and academic requirements to build college retention protective factors.

Capital Improvements

One of the main goals of 2015-2018 Strategic Plan, Opening Doors focuses on people and programs, but the achievement of these objectives requires resources to strengthen current operations and facilities. Our future master plan will respond to the evolving needs of today’s learners and leaders by promoting a dynamic and innovative environment to support the academic, co-curricular, and spiritual mission of the school.
