A school is only as successful as its volunteers. At Bishop Grimes, we welcome and encourage parents and alumni to donate their time to the school. It is through the efforts of our special volunteers that we are able to facilitate our fundraising events, offer mentoring support, and host events that revolve around our BG Community.
Please note that if you wish to volunteer, you will need to be trained and in compliance with the Syracuse Diocese VIRTUS requirements.

Bishop Grimes Parent Organization (BGPO)
The BGPO is an active group supporting all areas of the school, including the faculty, fundraising for scholarships, the arts and music programs and more! The BGPO helps plan and implement the school’s largest fundraiser, the annual Spring Dinner & Auction. Each year we try to think outside of the box to come up with a fun theme to engage parents and alumni alike. We also help volunteer at various events throughout the year, including the annual Cobra Classic Golf Tournament, the musicals, concerts, and more! If you’re interested in joining the BGPO, please don’t hesitate to reach out- firstname.lastname@example.org.
While the Booster Club subsidizes many of our athletic program needs, they also provide funds for sports-related school expenses. Workers are needed to staff concessions, gate sales, player food as well as serve on the planning committees of the Booster fundraising events. If you’re interested in joining the Booster Club, please do not hesitate to reach out- email@example.com.
Bishop Grimes has reorganized its Alumni Committee with a core group of alumni seeking to re-establish their relationships with their alma mater and friends of the past. The group meets quarterly and plans several social events. Whether you are from the first graduating class or the most recent graduating class, we are looking for alumni of all ages.
BG Fan Club
The BG Fan Club is comprised of parent volunteers who are interested in raising funds for the music and arts program. Throughout the school year, the BG Fan Club hosts an array of events.
