Making an investment in our students.
Building a strong school community is at the center of a Sacred Heart experience. Faculty, staff, students, parents, alumnae and friends all participate in our community as we all have a role in delivering the school’s 150+ year mission. Sacred Heart’s strength is in its community. Building a strong community takes many forms including volunteering in the classroom or on an event committee, attending or hosting school events, making a financial gift and enthusiastically recommending SHA to others. All of this helps to protect and provide for our most treasured asset – our student body.
Current and future financial sustainability is critical in offering the educational experience that the entire SHA community has come to expect. Being mindful that tuition does not cover the entire cost of a student’s education, philanthropy and the support of gifts from alumnae, parents, friends, corporations, foundations, faculty, staff and proceeds raised at various school events remain a priority. SHA continues to stand on the shoulders of those benefactors who provide annual and estate planned financial support. Sacred Heart thanks you and encourages the entire community to consider a gift
Sacred Heart Academy Bryn Mawr's Annual Fund is the most important fund. Each year, you are asked to invest in our students with a gift to the Annual Fund. As tuition does not cover the entire cost of a student's education, Sacred Heart relies on unrestricted gifts to the Annual Fund to provide each of our students with a Sacred Heart education. This fund supports academics, athletics, extracurriculars, technology, our fiscal plant, etc. Without your gift, SHA cannot provide the excellent education for which we are known. This unrestricted support is used in the year in which it is received.
A restricted gift to the Annual Fund allows a donor to restrict their gift to an area of interest such as: science, the arts, field hockey, a scholarship, etc.
