2023 Trojans Day of Giving is March 21!

Our students have the drive to lead in this world and let their light shine. Your tuition assistance support will light up that path.

During these 24 hours, our alumni, parents, and friends will come together to give as much as possible in a single day to support student tuition assistance at Bishop Chatard.


Make Your Donation Today!

60th Year Challenge

With the amazing leadership of our alumni donors, dedication of our parents, and support of our community, in 2022, we all came together and contributed an incredible $54,051 toward tuition assistance at Bishop Chatard.

We are so grateful for all who helped us achieve another proud Trojans Day of Giving! There is still time to donate to help us reach our goal of $60,000 in celebration of our 60th anniversary.
