A top priority for Sacred Heart is the ongoing advancement of technology (instructional resources and infrastructure), and the preservation of our historic property. Our Annual Giving Fund directly benefits our students and staff. This fund allows Sacred Heart to acquire excellent tools for learning, and to ensure that our campus supports play and growth in a safe and aesthetically pleasing environment. We look to the Annual Giving Fund to fill the gap between tuition income and operating expenses, especially in the areas of technology and facilities.
Sacred Heart values diversity in our student body. Our Bursary Fund provides needed financial support for families who qualify for aid and are a terrific fit for our school – academically and in regard to our mission. Contributions can be made to the Bursary Fund throughout the year. Some people make gifts to the bursary program to honour or remember a special event or person. Annually, we have a Sacred Heart Bursary Dinner to raise money for this fund.
Our Planned Giving Program invites benefactors to consider a bequest to the Sacred Heart School of Halifax in their will or through another planned giving avenue. A bequest can be for an unrestricted or designated gift, in the form of cash, property or securities, or it can be specified as a residual legacy. To enhance estate/income tax planning, a tax receipt for the full value of a bequest is provided to the donor’s estate. Bequests are not irreversible gifts, and can be amended when circumstances arise. When received, donations may remain anonymous, be acknowledged in memoriam, or celebrated on the donor recognition wall at the School.
