Give a gift every year –

make a difference EVERY day!


“Every year, we face the challenge of paying competitive salaries to our teachers and coaches, while at the same time expanding and strengthening educational and extracurricular opportunities for our students. One of my favorite prayers was composed by St. Ignatius, and it begins with these words: “Lord, teach me to be generous”. We have been blessed beyond what we could have expected by the generous response of our parents, alums, and others to our appeals for money for special projects, teacher salaries, and scholarships. Somehow, God always supplies our needs so that we can not only survive but triumph. He uses you for that very purpose.” Fr. Bry Shields, President



Thank for your generous support of McGill-Toolen Catholic High School this past year. It  was a record setting year!  We raised $467,000 in Annual Giving through your support of The Fund for McGill-Toolen Catholic, Dancing with the Stars – Jacket Style and our special projects campaign.


At McGill-Toolen Catholic High School we have a proud tradition of offering outstanding academic programs in an environment that celebrates our Catholic faith.  Our students excel in and out of the classroom and you can be proud to be a part of their successes.  So many of the opportunities we are able to provide for our students would not be available without the critical financial support that the Fund provides.  Your gift to The Fund for McGill-Toolen Catholic impacts every aspect of the McT experience and is a significant measure of the strength of our school community.  A gift to The Fund for McGill-Toolen Catholic remains the most direct and fundamental way to support our students and our mission.  Please consider making a gift today.
