Campaign for St. Bernard

Planning for St. Bernard’s Next Century

The Campaign for St. Bernard began in 2013 and concluded in 2018.  Because of the generous response of the St. Bernard Family of alumni and benefactors, the campaign exceeded its $5.2 million goal, receiving payments and pledges totaling nearly $6 million.  A special initiative of the campaign was the 333 Club aimed at onboarding more of our young alumni as donors through a goal of 300 donors pledging $3,000 over 3 years. Members of the 333 Club were included as key donors of the campaign.



We are grateful to every donor that answered our call to make St. Bernard a better place.
