Our Annual Kick-Off Campaign?

Make a donation to the Parents’ Association Kick-Off Campaign and share our fundraiser with your family and friends. Bishop Dunne is a diverse school where middle and high school students get the opportunity to try new things – to explore, inquire, lead, and serve in a joyful community of faith. Let’s tell the community about our great school.

Share your story! We’re asking families to share their story about Bishop Dunne. Tell your family, friends, and colleagues—Why Dunne? Brag about how your child has thrived there (please, BRAG!), and why everyone should seriously consider sending their children to Bishop Dunne. Simply email your story to 5-15 people and include the link to our Kick-Off Campaign Fundraiser. Gifts of any size make an impact!
