Fundraising Events


In order to keep tuition affordable for our families, Father McGivney Catholic High School relies on several fundraising events throughout the year to help deliver academic excellence, faith formation, and college preparatory education to the Catholic students in the area.

McGivney Fall Sponsorship Packages

With sponsorships starting at $100 for families and $150 for businesses and going up to $1000, we have an opportunity this fall for you to consider making one donation to sponsor all 4 of McGivney’s fall fundraising events – rather than us hitting you up for each event individually.

Simply email Emily Joellenbeck at ejoellenbeck@mcgivneygriffins.com for help on how to word your sponsorship or include a business logo and make payment.  No paper forms to print and fill out!

Your Fall Events Sponsorship covers all of our fall events: McGivney’s Golf Tournament, 5K Run/Walk, and 2 boys soccer games – Homecoming and a “Friday Night Lights” game on campus.   Click here for the flyer for dates and details.

Your sponsorship will appear on signage at all 4 of our fundraising events, on event programs, the 5K t-shirt, and on our website and social media sites.  Refer to the attached flyer for larger sponsorship packages that equate to even more exposure – larger signage, bigger logos, and more mentions.

Thank you for supporting our school!  Go Griffins!

McGivney Fall Golf Classic

Introduced in 2015, the 3rd Annual McGivney Fall Golf Classic will take place at Timber Lakes Golf Course in Staunton on Sunday, October 7th, 2018 at  beginning at 8AM with an outdoor Mass.  It will be followed by a shotgun start and will finish with a luncheon and silent auction.  Registration forms can be found here.

Annual Halloween 5K Run/Walk

It’s that time of the year again – time to get off the couch and start hitting the pavement! The 9th Annual Father McGivney Halloween 5K Run/Walk is on Saturday, October 27th, 2018.  There will be a FREE Kid’s Halloween Party in the gymnasium – crafts, games, treats, face painting, and fun. Costumes are encouraged! Come out and have fun while supporting our school. Advanced registration for both events (run/walk and kid’s party) is strongly encouraged.  We are happy to announce this year’s registration will be available online!

The deadline to be guaranteed a shirt in your size is WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 17th.

Griffin Gala Dinner Auction

SAVE THE DATE!  We are looking forward to a delightful evening that will bring our school community together and raise funds for our school.  The 2nd Annual Griffin Gala Dinner Auction will be held on Saturday, February 16th, 2019.

The funds raised at the Griffin Gala will be an essential part of our continued development.  We have committed to advancing our mission of a faith-based education by providing present and future students with the very best – spiritual enrichment and faith formation, academic excellence, facility improvements, technology enhancements, athletic, performing arts and other opportunities.

All families are being asked to support this event with a gift of their time, talent and treasure. Our goal is 100% family participation – to achieve this, we need each family to either attend, donate an item, sponsor the event, or volunteer (or a combination).  Email Emily Joellenbeck at ejoellenbeck@mcgivneygriffins.com if you would like to join the efforts to put on the event.  Planning will begin in the Fall.

More details will be made available as we approach the event’s date.

McGivney Trivia Night

In it’s sixth year, the annual McGivney Trivia Night is a great way to support McGivney while having fun!  The Trivia Night is held on Saturday, March 16, 2019 and more details will be released as we move closer to the date.

Annual Appeal

Each year in the Spring, Father McGivney Catholic High School reaches out to our surrounding parishes for help in bridging the gap between our fundraising events and tuition, and the cost to educate our students.  Watch your parish bulletins and school newsletters for more information.
