Our Lady’s Giving Society

The Our Lady’s Giving Society offers donors the opportunity to be in direct partnership with the leadership of the Department of Catholic Schools. Society members participate in empowering students to become leaders of distinction and holiness.

Members partner with Most Reverend Kevin Vann, JCD, DD and Dr. Erin Barisano, Superintendent of Catholic Schools, in addressing critical needs, financial aid, strategic curriculum and organizational development, and priorities to integrate Catholic faith, morals and culture into academic life, nurturing a strong Catholic identity.

Resources help fund the long-term sustainability of Catholic education in the Diocese of Orange addressing immediate strategic areas of need.
