As Sacred Heart Catholic School looks toward its 118th year of educating students, it is imperative that we strive to achieve financial stability for the next 100 years. Through the dedication and financial support of generations of teachers, parents, parishioners, and others in the Pine Belt Community, we have remained the best choice for a quality Christian Catholic education in the area. We want to continue this standard of excellence.
This year, we are introducing the Legacy Campaign. Your generosity to the campaign will provide financial support for specific programs and/or the school’s general operating budget. Our elementary and high school students will benefit immediately from your participation.
This year, our primary months for solicitation of donations will be November and December. However, your gifts are always welcome. The Legacy Campaign will begin with the new fiscal year in July of each year.
Please consider the following areas of need:
- Technology – $50,000 (providing Chromebooks and carts at the elementary and high school)
- Textbooks – $40,000
- Classroom Maintenance and Equipment Repairs – $21,000 (includes Jr. High Science Lab)
- Retirement of the High School Building Debt – $215,000 annual note
- Establishment of an Alumni Museum
- General Operations
Donations may be made by mail, in person or via PayPal using the link below. Mailed contributions must be postmarked by December 31st to receive contribution credit for 2017.
Thank you again for your support of Sacred Heart Catholic School.

Some donors take the opportunity to give to the school by providing tangible items such as computers, office or athletic equipment, books or other items related to our educational programs. The Development Office can help you determine the acceptability of gifts as well as potential tax benefits and implications of gifts in-kind.
You can remember Sacred Heart Catholic School by leaving a gift in your will or estate plan. Making a planned gift may allow you to give more than you ever thought possible and, at the same time, you may experience tax advantages or income for a number of years or life.
Gifts of Securities
If you hold securities that would incur a tax on capital gains if sold, your outright gift to Sacred Heart could mean significant savings. You obtain a tax deduction for the full market value of the gift, and you may avoid a tax on the increase in value.
