Annual Fund / General Contribution
The Annual Fund consists of unrestricted gifts made to Bayridge by alums, parents, and other friends. These gifts are critically important to the residence and to its ability to carry out its mission. Gifts to the Annual Fund support a wide variety of ongoing activities, providing resources for scholarships, emergency financial assistance, and programs that enhance the quality of student life.
The generosity of alumnae and friends of Bayridge has allowed us to renovate all the living areas of the house. Our next big project is a complete overhaul of the lower level, which can only be accomplished with the support of people like you.
The spiritual formation offered at Bayridge Residence is entrusted to Opus Dei. Through their prayer, work or donations, Opus Dei's Cooperators assist the educational, charitable, social and cultural undertakings promoted by Opus Dei throughout the world.
