Make a Donation
A donation to the Bishop Manning Support Fund is an investment in our children's future. Learn how you can contribute.
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 Schools Parramatta Diocese covers the operating expenses of the Fund so that 100% of all donations go to fund recipients.
This arrangement assists schools in accommodating financially disadvantaged families.
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.
Your donation will make a difference to a child from a disadvantaged background to be provided a quality catholic education.
Donations can be made via direct debit or credit card on a weekly, fortnightly monthly, bi-monthly, Quarterly, half yearly and on a yearly basis.
