Mission Statement for Advancement

The mission of Sacred Hearts School Advancement Office is to engage alumni, parents, grandparents, businesses, students and friends to foster relationships as leaders, ambassadors and investors of Sacred Hearts School to meet current and long-term financial supports.

Through educating alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty, staff, students, friends and businesses, providing information, and fostering relationships, the Advancement Office seeks to listen to and communicate with the school's constituents and the greater community for the purpose of encouraging them to invest time, expertise, and financial resources for the advancement of Sacred Hearts School.

Why is the Annual Fund important to SHS?

The Annual Fund involves unrestricted giving from Alumni, Parents, Grandparents, Parishioners, businesses, and Friends.

The Annual Fund is essential to the financial well-being of Sacred Hearts School. It helps maintain academic excellence, to compensate quality faculty & staff, to maintain and upkeep physical plant and grounds and of course, bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost to educate each SHS student.

All gifts to the program, unlike tuition, are tax-deductible. It is encouraged that all families participate in and support the institutional advancement program by offering your "time, talent, and/or treasure".
