Thanks TUE you, our beloved community, for supporting our 5th #GivingTuesday. It was a resounding success! With the generous Advisory Council match and your support, we surpassed our goal and raised over $60,000 for the students of Sacred Heart Academy.
For the 5th year in a row, #GivingTuesday was a momentous, all-day occasion filled with high energy from our students, faculty, staff, and alumnae. Our students embraced the spirit of giving with Class Giving Days and wore SHA spirit apparel. Alumnae from across the U.S., participated in #GivingTuesday and the #Unselfies were most creative—from Hamden, CT to Naples, FL. On social media, highlights included President Sr. Sheila O'Neill, ASCJ going "live" on Facebook from MaryLee Delaney's English class, to the original location of the Academy on Greene Street, to the beloved trip up our driveway with John Denver's "Looking for Space," the iconic "on the road of experience" lyric playing through the car speakers.
We are grateful for your blessings on this global day of giving as we continue to educate, inspire, and empower our young women! Your gifts truly make a difference in the lives of our students, faculty, and staff.
Advancement Associate Holly Fink shared, "#GivingTuesday is one of my favorite days all year. The spirit of the school community and the generosity from so many is truly moving. Though just a single day, the impact on our students is immeasurable. We look forward to #GivingTuesday 2019!"
