Legacy Campaign

In its 118th year of educating students, it is imperative that Sacred Heart Catholic School strives to achieve financial stability for the next 100 years. Through the dedication and financial support of generations of teachers, parents, parishioners, and others in the Pine Belt Community, we have remained the best choice for a quality Christian Catholic education in the area. We want to continue this standard of excellence.

As a part of this effort, in 2017, Sacred Heart introduced the Legacy Campaign. This annual campaign provides financial support for specific programs and/or the school’s general operating budget. The Legacy Campaign begins with the new fiscal year in July of each year. Elementary and high school students benefit immediately from your participation. Furthermore, in 2018, Sacred Heart became one of three schools in the Diocese of Biloxi to be eligible to receive up to $500,000 in matching funds from an anonymous donor. These funds will be strictly used to retire debt. Sacred Heart has a five-year period to make the match, beginning August 1, 2018 and ending July 21, 2023. If the match occurs before the five years expires, all funds will be released to the school. As a result of this opportunity, Sacred Heart is launching the "Crusader Challenge" as a part of our Legacy Campaign. This is a unique opportunity for us to retire a large amount of debt in a limited time period and enable us to focus on educating our students.
