Our Sacré Cœur community has long been responsible for ensuring that the excellence and unique experience of a Sacred Heart education is available for our students today, as well as for future generations of young women. The Foundation plays a vital role in making this possible.
Established in 2004, the Sacré Cœur Foundation is a public company limited by guarantee and is governed by a Board of Directors appointed by the School Board.
While its prime role is fundraising, the Foundation also aspires to be a compassionate and caring organization. It has a strong belief in the benefits of a Sacred Heart education, both for society and the individual. Through its charter, the Foundation has accepted the responsibility for providing the School with additional capital resources to deliver on its promises to the Sacré Cœur students, parents and their families. We want our students to have the very best opportunities. One avenue for such support is through the award of Florence Buckley Scholarships. The funds from a bequest from Florence Buckley are administered by the Foundation Board.
Already, hundreds of our alumnae, current and past parents, staff and friends have given very generously to the Foundation. Thank you.
Fundraising has been and always will be an important part of securing the short-term and long-term goals for our School. Through the Foundation, we aim to nurture a strong belief in philanthropy within our community. By joining with us, you are sharing in our vision and building for the future.
I strongly encourage every member of our community to consider supporting the Foundation. By lending your support and being involved with the Foundation, you can help our School continue the fine tradition of Sacred Heart education, established internationally for more than two hundred years.
