Make a donation as an investment in our children's future
The Bishop Manning Support Fund (BMSF) assists families in genuine financial need by providing funds towards the costs of local school-based fees, excursions and an initial allowance for uniforms. Fee relief for Diocesan Tuition Fees is provided under the financial hardship policy. Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta covers the operating expenses of the Fund so that 100% of all donations go to fund recipients. This arrangement assists schools in accommodating the financially disadvantaged.
In particular, BMSF provides opportunities for new students to enter our schools from families who would otherwise not be able to afford a faith-based education in a Catholic school. Our ability to assist children from disadvantaged families is limited in accordance with donations that the Fund receives from the public and our Education staff.
Donations of $2 and over are tax deductible.
Your support will enable this educational initiative in our local communities and will assist us in our mission of making Catholic Education available to all in the Diocese of Parramatta.
