Annual Fund
The cornerstone of our fundraising efforts

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.

The Schools are entirely self-supporting and do not receive subsidies from the Catholic Church or the Society of the Sacred Heart. As a 501 (C) (3), not-for-profit institution, gifts to Sacred Heart (Federal Tax ID #36-2170839) are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. All gifts made between July 1 and June 30 are recognized in our Annual Report, mailed in the fall each year.
