Capital Campaign

Campaign Surpasses Original Goal & Closes at $23.7 Million

The Forward, Always Forward Capital Campaign, which began with an ambitious goal of $12 million, exceeded $23.7 million in December 2022 thanks to the incredible support and belief of the Benedictine community. 

The campaign, which articulated a bold vision to strengthen every dimension of the school, was driven by the leadership of Benedictine Military School Headmaster Fr. Frank Ziemkiewicz, and fueled by the financial support of the BC family. That combination has resulted in the transformation of our campus. This capital campaign didn't include the annual Benedictine Fund (for operating expenses) which has grown 105% during the campaign.
The Forward, Always Forward Capital Campaign has become the largest fundraising effort in school history. We are grateful for your support and for your belief in our Benedictine values as we serve our mission by instilling character and values into the next generation of young men.
