New school year. New needs for Annual Fund Support! Sacred Heart relies on Annual Fund gifts, day in and day out, to meet operating expenses, compensate teachers, offer financial aid, maintain our buildings and sustain a strong religious education program while preserving our cherished Sacred Heart traditions. Gifts go to work immediately, touching every aspect of school life.
Every gift is vital. Alumni, parents of alumni, faculty, staff and especially parents of current students all have an important role to play in making the Annual Fund a success. Last year, 98% of the faculty and staff, 83% of current families, 9% of parents of alumni, and 6% of alumni contributed, making the Annual Fund the Schools’ most financially significant, broad based, dependable, and flexible source of charitable support. This spirit of participation and generosity lends a sense of pride to all who support Sacred Heart Schools.
One heart. One community. One big show of support. We are grateful to our 780 donors--including current families, alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents, trustees, faculty, staff and friends--who helped Sacred Heart to raise more than $1 million in the 2013-14 Annual Fund! On behalf of every student and teacher, thank you for being a part of the Heart!
