Sacred Heart School has established an Endowment to ensure the financial security of Sacred Heart School for future generations. Our Endowment is a permanent fund, the principal of which is never spent. The principal is invested, earning annual interest income. That income is available for the school to use for financial aid and to support the school’s programs. Because the principal is never spent, the fund lasts forever, supporting the school in perpetuity.
Because the Endowment is a permanent fund, gifts to the SHS Endowment last forever and give forever. Your gift to the Endowment will give to the School now and every year as long as the school is standing. In a very real sense, our Endowment is our legacy. It is a statement of our faith in the value of Catholic education. It is our gift not only to our children, but to future generations of children as well.
The income from the Endowment will be available to provide financial aid to those families who could not otherwise afford to send their children to Sacred Heart. The income from the Endowment may also be used support operating expenses which will help keep tuition as low as possible and help keep the school affordable for our parish families.
Financial contributions to the Sacred Heart School Endowment are encouraged and most enthusiastically welcomed. Contributions to the SHS Endowment are a wonderful way to mark a special occasion, such as a birthday or anniversary. It is also a thoughtful way to make a memorial gift to honor a loved one.
You may make a gift to the Sacred Heart School Endowment in many ways. You may mail your check made out to “SHS Endowment” to the Parish Office. You may make a pledge to the Endowment to be paid over a period of one-to-five years. You may make a gift of stock or securities to the Endowment. You may remember the Endowment in your will.
Please remember: Gifts to the Sacred Heart School Endowment are 100% tax deductible. Also, employer matching funds will double your gift.
Please make your gift, and establish your legacy, to the Sacred Heart School Endowment.
