The O’Dowd community gathers annually for a number of fantastic fundraising events. Your participation in these fun-filled evenings strengthen our community and support O’Dowd to enact our mission as a Catholic college preparatory high school, guided by the teachings of Jesus Christ. Your participation as a sponsor, donor, volunteer, or guest enables O’Dowd to continue educating our diverse student body to build a more just, joyful and sustainable world.

Transforming Lives Dinner

Our annual Transforming Lives Dinner has grown to become O’Dowd’s signature fundraiser. Each fall,  families, alumni, and friends gather together to make a difference in the most direct way possible - providing funds to make an O’Dowd education financially accessible to students who otherwise would not be able to attend. The incredible generosity of the O’Dowd community not only transforms the lives of these individual students, but helps build a socio-economically diverse campus for all students. Together we make all the difference for O’Dowd students.

The O’Dowd community joined together to raise $560,000 in support of tuition assistance at the 2023 Transforming Lives Dinner.
