Give a Gift and Lead with Courage, Compassion, and Commitment
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.  Consistently over 90% of our graduates receive scholarships in the areas of academics, athletics and arts.

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.

You can allocate your gift to support any the following areas:

An Unrestricted Gift to the Annual Fund 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.

Merit and Need-Based Scholarships of various levels are awarded to young women who demonstrate 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 a full or partial scholarship that is offered annually and in perpetuity to students who are in need of financial support.
Tuition Assistance provides vital financial support to families who value Catholic education and are unable to meet the tuition expense at SHA without assistance.  
Athletics at Sacred Heart Academy are an important part of an individual's total educational experience. A gift to athletics helps to continue to provide a safe and competitive environment and enable programmatic growth.
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.
