Annual Fund

The Sacred Heart Academy Annual Fund is the most important gift you can make each year. The Annual Fund supports the entire Sacred Heart experience and enhances all aspects of life at the Academy, including academics, arts, athletics and more. Your gift has an immediate and direct effect on today's students and an immeasurable impact on their future.

The Annual Fund also supports our Tuition Assistance Program, allowing more young women to attend the Academy who qualify academically, but are in need of financial aid.

Supporting the Annual Fund communicates your confidence in our mission, vision, and educational program.

"With a focus on faith formation, and helping young women achieve academic excellence, Sacred Heart Academy is a place where they discover their true sense of self. Whether in a classroom, on an athletic field, or as a member of a club or activity, students at SacredHeart are provided with the opportunity to grow spiritually, academically, and socially, so they become the best version of themselves. My husband and I are proud every day to say that our daughters are members of the strong Sacred Heart Academy tradition."

Lori Schommer, P’16, ’18, ’20

Matching Gifts

Many employers will double or even triple charitable contributions made by employees and their spouses. If your employer matches donations made to educational institutions, your gift can be increased at no additional cost to you! The donor receives credit for both the original gift and the amount of the match.

Please send matching gift forms and direct questions to Holly Fink.

IRA Contributions

The IRA Rollover Law allows you make a gift to Sacred Heart Academy from your IRA without paying income taxes on the gifted amount; however, the donation does not qualify as a charitable gift for tax purposes. To qualify, you must be at least 70 1\2 years old, you must decline goods or services, and your rollover may not exceed $100,000. To make a gift, please send a letter to your IRA administrator requesting a direct charitable gift to Sacred Heart Academy in the amount you wish to donate.
