Rarely does generosity have such an immediate impact on the lives of others than through gifts to the Annual Fund. Why? Because these unrestricted and restricted gifts, regardless of size, provide flexibility through the immediate availability of resources to be directed where they are most urgently needed. Ensuring day-to-day operations are funded and special initiatives and programs are strengthened, means that we can spend more time focusing on the future, continuing to be a school that inspires young women to find their voice and succeed in the world.
The young women of Sacred Heart Academy continue to thrive thanks to the ongoing annual support of its extended community—alumnae, parents, grandparents, trustees, faculty, staff and friends alike.
Participation in the Annual Fund will make a real and meaningful difference to our students, our faculty and future generations of students who will have access to everything a Sacred Heart Academy education has to offer. A gift to the Annual Fund will assure that Sacred Heart Academy continues to build confidence in each student as she prepares to cross every frontier that is ahead of her.

Strategies for Giving
Many people are wondering, for charitable gifts, what do I do in the face of the changes that the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act makes to individual and business income tax, as well as the estate tax?

Instruction, Academic Support, and Student Services: Most people don’t realize that tuition and fees account for only a portion of Sacred Heart’s annual budget. Gifts to The Annual Fund create an essential bridge between tuition revenues and the actual cost of educating a Sacred Heart student, ensuring access to a quality all-girls independent Catholic education.
Financial Aid: With approximately 30% of Sacred Heart Academy students relying on financial aid, sustaining and increasing assistance for talented students remains a top priority.
Institutional Support: Resources provided by gifts to The Annual Fund make it possible for us to provide the wide range of services, programs and support necessary to keep Sacred Heart operating at our fullest potential each and every day.
Did you know? Alumnae participation in The Annual Fund is an important factor when Sacred Heart applies for grants from foundations. It is a measure of alumnae satisfaction that has an impact on a foundation’s decision to accept a proposal.
Community Effort: Gifts from our alumnae will boost our participation rate while helping to meet the immediate needs of our students. Contributions from parents and friends make a big difference too! Help make a Sacred Heart Academy education possible for those who seek one.
Thank you for providing for and protecting the Sacred Heart mission.
