Give a Gift and Lead with Commitment, Compassion, and Courage
Your investment in our mission to educate young women in the tradition and spirituality of the Sisters of St. Joseph is truly appreciated.  Our students are remarkable young women who are taking the lead on all fronts.  Over 90% of the Class of 2018 received scholarships in the areas of academics, athletics and arts which is consistent with last year.   Your gift sends a message about your confidence in Sacred Heart Academy’s future, and will inspire others to join us in empowering young women who “lead with heart.”  

Your tax-deductible gift may be in the form of cash, credit card or check, securities/stocks or visit our Planned Giving section for more long term giving options.

To make a gift by mail, please make your check payable to Sacred Heart Academy and send it to:

We also accept the following gift types:

Securities and Trusts
Gifts of stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or securities can prove to be the most beneficial way to lend your support. Donations through a trust can provide an opportunity to acquire major tax benefits and receive a return from the assets. Usually funded through appreciated securities or property, trusts can ensure a steady sheltered annual income.

Did you know you can allocate your gift to support any the following areas:

An Unrestricted Gift gives you the opportunity to do the greatest good.  It provides Sacred Heart Academy with the flexibility to allocate funds to address the most critical and immediate needs.  It allows for the opportunity to address unforeseen challenges and improve the quality of academics, as well as campus and spiritual life.

Academic Scholarships of various levels are awarded to young women who demonstrate superior academic achievement and outstanding leadership qualities.

  • Alumnae Association Scholarship - is a partial need-based scholarship available to an incoming 9th grade student with a Sacred Heart Academy alumna connection.
  • The Dear Neighbor Scholarship is a full tuition need-based scholarship awarded to an incoming 9th grade student from the Hempstead/Uniondale/Roosevelt area who demonstrates a desire to succeed and become a contributing member of the SHA community.
  • Mary A. Haigney Endowed Scholarship is offered annually and in perpetuity to students who are in need of financial support. The scholarship provides full or partial tuition support and allows Sacred Heart to maintain a talented and diverse student body and remain true to the mission of the Sisters of St. Joseph. 
  • Tuition Assistance provides vital financial support to families who value Catholic education and are unable to meet the tuition expense at SHA without assistance.  
Bloomberg for Education is used as a tool to bring the real world of finance to Sacred Heart Academy.  We are the first all-girls school to establish a Bloomberg Financial Markets Lab.  The annual cost of maintaining 12 Bloomberg terminals is substantial, but the dividends for our students and the effects they will have on our community are vast.
