Living the Mission is the Schools’ on-going major gifts program intended for those committed donors who are motivated to support strategic initiatives of the Schools, above and beyond annual giving.
Established in honor of Sr. Susan Maxwell, Director of Schools from 1997 – 2009, gifts to Living the Mission are designated exclusively for three areas: scholarships, faculty support and professional development.
Sacred Heart families, alumni and friends are encouraged to become Sustaining Members of Living the Mission by making a pledge of $25,000 or more to be completed over five years. Sustaining Membership is in perpetuity. Members are recognized on a permanent plaque outside the chapel and are celebrated at the annual Merci Beaucoup reception each May.
The Schools are deeply grateful to the exceptionally generous donors whose support is essential to the sustainability of Sacred Heart education in Chicago.
If you wish to join this truly extraordinary group of donors by making a major gift over and above your Annual Fund contribution, please contact the Development Office at 773.681.8409.
