The Baggot Street Annual Fund consists of unrestricted or directed gifts that have an immediate and direct impact on our students and faculty. Like most private schools, tuition at ICCS does not fully cover the cost to educate each student. An annual fund, along with other fundraisers such as the Mardi Gras Dinner Auction and Fall Festival, makes it possible to keep tuition affordable for our families. Unlike tuition and fees, donations to the BSAF are tax deductible.
Contributing to the Baggot Street Fund is the most direct way for you to support our school, and you may choose how your gift is used. You may either designate your gift to where it is needed most, or you may direct it to one of the specific needs below.
Each year, ICCS welcomes families who have traveled from another state or country so that their cancer-stricken child can receive life-saving treatment at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. You may direct your gift to the scholarship fund to help cover tuition for that child's sibling(s) to attend ICCS during the family's stay in Memphis.
You can help our teaching staff stay on top of the most current trends in education that will help to ensure that our students have the best classroom learning experience.
At the corner of Rush and Lower Baggot Street in Dublin, Ireland stands the Mercy International Centre. Mother Catherine McAuley, founder of the Sisters of Mercy, who in 1922 established our school, began her first House of Mercy on Baggot Street in 1831. The Baggot Street House represented sanctuary, hope and support to young women and their children. It is fitting to name our Annual Fund after Baggot Street — since 1922, Immaculate Conception Cathedral School has been a symbol of opportunity and a place where students come to discover and utilize their God-given strengths and gifts.
