Ways to Give

Annual Fund

The Annual Fund is Sacred Heart School's most critical ongoing fundraising effort. Unrestricted gifts help the school meet annual expenses such as faculty salaries, new programs, upgrades in technology and financial aid. Funds generated from the SHS Annual Fund help to bridge the $900+ gap between tuition revenues and the actual cost of educating today's students. Gifts may be made in honor or memory of a classmate, student, teacher or family member. A gift may be pledged to be paid over a period of time before the June 30 deadline each year.


The endowment can be compared to a savings account. The financial assets generate income through wise investment of the principal. Priority is placed on long-term growth of the endowment to satisfy future needs of the school. Income earned from the endowment is used to support the school's operating expenses and to provide financial assistance opportunities for students.

Gifts of Securities

Alternative non-cash contributions such as appreciated assets, stocks or real estate.

Capital Campaigns

Capital campaigns are periodic initiatives that support projects not generally funded by the yearly operating budget. The object of most capital fundraising is building the endowment or the construction or renovation of campus buildings.

Planned Giving 

Planned or deferred gifts are another way to make a gift to Sacred Heart School while meeting the long-term needs of your estate planning. Such contributions may include gifts of cash, securities, tangible property, real estate or life insurance.

Matching Gifts 

Many companies have matching gift programs that support various nonprofit organizations, including Sacred Heart School. The company for which you or your spouse works may match any cash or stock gift you make – sometimes on a dollar-for-dollar basis or more.


Volunteering can take many forms. Whatever your passion and available time, SHS appreciates your help.
