Advancing Sacred Heart Forward

Sacred Heart Catholic School is focused on advancing the mission of the institution by securing financial investments and enrollment each academic year. Education is transformative! Financial gifts strengthen Sacred Heart’s ability to create resources for student learning. This learning produces strong graduates and future leaders within the community. Sacred Heart Catholic School was founded in 1900 as a parochial school funded by Sacred Heart Catholic Church and is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Gifts are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. As we move towards the 125th anniversary, the Quasquicentennial Year Celebration in 2025, Sacred Heart invites you to Fund It Forward!

Why Give?

Financial gifts support the mission of the school and supplement a student's development. Sacred Heart Catholic School believes in developing the whole student: academics, athletics, fine arts and faith. Your gifts enable enhancements to our existing programs, provide academic support, and fund tuition assistance for those in need. 

Designate Your Gift

As we approach 2025, Sacred Heart Catholic School is focusing on the following areas for financial giving:

  • On-Site High School Gymnasium Building Fund | This building will advance P.E. curriculum, student athletes and facilities on both campuses.
  • Academic Advancement | This fund will support classroom resources including, but not limited to, STEM, technology and facility.
  • Student Life & Athletics | This fund will advance student activities, fine arts and athletic needs.
  • Enrollment & General Growth at Sacred Heart Catholic School | Donations will support enrollment and communications at Sacred Heart Catholic School.

Once annual goals are met for these areas, additional money will be designated for the high school gymnasium building fund.

Other Gifts to Consider:

Gifts In-kind

Some donors take the opportunity to give to the school by providing tangible items such as computers, office or athletic equipment, books or other items related to our educational programs. Sacred Heart administration can help determine the acceptability of gifts as well as potential tax benefits and implications of gifts-in-kind.

Planned Gifts

You can remember Sacred Heart Catholic School by leaving a gift in your will or estate plan. Making a planned gift may allow you to give more than you ever thought possible and, at the same time, you may experience tax advantages or income for a number of years or life.

Gifts of Securities

If you hold securities that would incur a tax on capital gains if sold, your outright gift to Sacred Heart could mean significant savings. You obtain a tax deduction for the full market value of the gift, and you may avoid a tax on the increase in value.
