Together we make POPE STRONG

It’s hard to believe that the 2018-2019 school year is upon us. Since our founding, the Pope High School Foundation has been committed to providing our school, our students, and the entire Pope community with valuable resources and assets that make us all POPE STRONG.

Over the years, we have provided funding for initiatives that have touched virtually every student who has walked through Pope’s doors, whether they were enjoying the Media Center that was transformed into a Learning Commons, the newly renovated Pope Running Trail, or they were the beneficiary of something funded by the gift cards we provide to all teachers for their classroom needs.

We rely on private donations from our Pope community to continue the work we are doing. When you choose to support the foundation, you are ensuring that Pope High School stays vibrant and strong for many years to come.

Donate online  today to support your Pope Foundation.
