Because of a deep commitment to fulfilling the mission of Sacred Heart education, there will always be the need to expand technology, support financial aid and ensure competitive faculty compensation while keeping enrollment consistent and being thoughtful with tuition increases. Gifts to endowed funds provide a steady revenue stream to the school, ensuring continued programmatic offerings from strategic initiatives.

Endowed funds are established in perpetuity and provide long-term sustainability and vitality for students, faculty and programs at Sacred Heart. Sacred Heart’s endowment generates an annual stream of revenue to sustain scholarship, research, teaching and service programs. The school depends on endowment to ensure the support of programs, faculty and operations and the long-term advancement of the mission to educate the whole child.
