Annual Fund 

Importance of the Annual Fund

Gifts to the Annual Fund benefit every student by supporting academic programs, athletics, the arts, financial aid, and faculty enrichment. These are unrestricted dollars which go directly to supporting the school's operating budget. 

Your Gift Matters

The opportunities that your gift provides for Sacred Heart's students are numerous and incredibly important. Tuition at 91st Street is considerable, but only covers 81% of the cost of educating a student. Just as all independent schools do, Sacred Heart relies on annual gifts to make up this difference. 

Consider A Gift

A strong Annual Fund is instrumental in enhancing each student's experience. These gifts help keep our school strong while also ensuring that Sacred Heart's academic, athletics, and arts programs remain at a rigorous level. 

We encourage your participation in fundraising initiatives at Sacred Heart, and invite you to volunteer for the annual giving program. If you have any further questions, please contact Amanda De Vito, Director of Annual Giving and Special Events, at (212) 722-4745, extension 124, or by e-mail at:
