A Historical Campaign for Monsignor Farrell
"Thank you for providing me and my fellow students with the tools needed to Strengthen the Legacy." - Sean Nieprzecki '23
We ask you to consider Monsignor Farrell High School in your charitable giving plans.
There are three ways to help strengthen the legacy of the school that has molded generations of young men into leaders in their families, careers, and communities:
Strengthen the Legacy Leadership Pledge
Leadership pledges range from $5,000 to $1M over five years and can be paid quarterly or annually.
Strengthen the Legacy Recurring Gift
Choose from our two new recurring gift programs, the “1961 Origin Recurring Gift” or the “2900 Homestead Recurring Gift” or create a custom amount. The 1961 and 2900 Recurring gifts will remain open for five years and custom gifts will remain open-ended unless an alternate end date is chosen by the donor.
Strengthen the Legacy One -Time Gift
One-time gifts can be made in any amount. To give your gift by check, please download the donation form.
Pledges and One-Time Gifts Can Be Given in Stock!
If you choose to make a pledge or a one-time gift, stock gifts are a fast and easy way to make a meaningful impact on our Faithful Men. Farrell alumni have gifted over $400,000 worth of stock to the Vir Fidelis Fund in just the past 12 months! Contact John Cusick for stock transfer instructions.
Your Donations at Work
The 5-year, $12 million “Strengthen the Legacy” capital campaign is transforming Monsignor Farrell High School with investments in new technology, facility modernization, endowment building, and scholarship.

The Award-Winning Brother Henry S. Wright Learning Commons
Designed by architect Dave Businelli '83 of Studio 16 Architecture, the Brother Henry S. Wright Learning Commons was built in the footprint of the old library and has received numerous awards for its design.
The learning commons offers comfortable furniture for both individual and group study, modular furnishings that allow faculty, staff, and students to customize the environment to suit their needs, access to research networks, SMART Board technology, as well as the NanaWall folding glass partitions that allow the learning commons to be converted into one large space, or broken down into smaller rooms.
The learning commons, named in memory of beloved long-time faculty member Brother Henry S. Wright, is also home to our Writing Studio and Center for Learning and Academic Wellness.
It is also the site for many guest lectures, including our Visiting Professor Lecture Series, conferences, and meetings, both in-person and virtual.
Adjacent to the learning commons is the new university-style book store and gift shop.
The Strength & Wellness Center
All Monsignor Farrell High School students will have an opportunity to train in our new Strength & Wellness Center. As a part of Phase Two of our Strengthen The Legacy Capital Campaign, the new Strength & Wellness Center will focus on improving the health and wellness of all of our students.
Our new facility will feature state-of-the-art systems and stations designed to improve students’ athletic and physical performance, health, and overall wellness.

New Science/STEM Labs and Suites
All new state-of-the-art biology (pictured above), chemistry, and earth science/physics labs and suites provide our faithful men with the tools they need to succeed. This equipment includes our own water testing facility (part of our new marine biology society) and the Anatomage virtual dissection table, which is used by top medical schools across the country.
Donations to the campaign have also allowed us to add the latest SMART Board technology and whiteboards to all classrooms and renovate and modernize all student restrooms.
We are forever grateful for your generosity and support!
