The Thomas McCarthy Foundation is a separate and distinct entity from St Brigid Catholic church and the Diocese of Fresno. Funds and donations that are received will remain under local control.
The Thomas McCarthy Foundation was incorporated in 2000. The name of the foundation was given to memorialize and continue the dreams of one of the school's most gracious benefactors: Thomas McCarthy.
The Foundation's sole purpose is to provide support to St. Rose-McCarthy Catholic School.
The Foundation maintains a board of five directors. Two of these Directors consist of the school principal and the pastor of Saint Brigid.
The cost of running our school increases each year. The increase is not due to lavish and unnecessary spending, but simply due to inflation. We strive to pay teachers well in order to attract effective talent. But our salaries never equal those of public school teachers.
Parents pitch in with volunteer hours, but we must not burden them too greatly. Thus the Thomas McCarthy Foundation constantly seeks new ways to generate revenues for our children's Catholic education.
There are many ways you can assist the Foundation, like supporting our fundraisers and making charitable contributions. When you are planning your final wishes, you can make Thomas McCarthy Foundation one of your beneficiaries.
