Fund-A-Need is an annual capital improvement campaign dedicated to a specific need at the school that helps to preserve the legacy and tradition that began 110 years ago.

It begins every fall and is held in conjunction with the Annual Auction. Thanks to the generous support of many alumni, friends, and organizations, we have been able to accomplish various projects over the years that directly benefit the students and visitors of Bishop Ward. St. Francis of Assisi Steam Center logo with Bishop Ward logo
