Catholic, Independent Elementary Schools Serving Chicago's Children Since 1876


Leadership Giving

Leadership gifts are fundamental to the success of the Schools.

Leadership donors include current families with Annual Fund commitments beginning at $3,000, which is approximately the difference between the cost of tuition and the actual cost of educating each student at Sacred Heart. Leadership donors also include alumni, parents of alumni and friends who make Annual Fund gifts of $1,000 or more.

Last year, more than 120 current families gave at the leadership level. Approximately 20% of those contributing at the leadership level were alumni, parents of alumni, faculty/staff or grandparents. Sacred Heart remains grateful to those who make such a dramatic difference in the Schools' operating resources.

Leadership donors are recognized in the Annual Report and are celebrated at the Cor Unum Reception in the fall. Donors also have the option of giving anonymously.

If you are interested in making a leadership gift, please contact Alexandra Voigt, Development Director, at (773) 681-8410.
