Sacred Heart School Shamrock Fund

The Shamrock Fund, begun in the 2003-04 school year, was created to (1) forward fund the Sacred Heart Teacher Incentive Pay Program and (2) to keep tuition low and affordable for all families who want a Catholic education for their children. Unlike tuition, donations to the Shamrock Fund are free, voluntary gifts by parents, patrons and benefactors. Each year, an annual goal is set, and when the goal is reached, an anonymous benefactor matches the total of donations made on the condition that tuition and parish assessments not be increased. The Shamrock Fund has been a life-saving program for Sacred Heart, providing $700,000 over the past seven years.

Up to now, there was an annual cap of $75,000 that would be matched. But now, on the condition that Sacred Heart conduct a five-year pledge campaign on behalf of the Shamrock Fund and Incentive Pay Program, the $75,000 limit has been lifted and our benefactor has promised to match the pledges for the next five years with no limit.

Yes, this is true. It is an amazing offer, an oppor-tunity that cannot be passed up. So...our first need is for support of the Shamrock Fund in the form of pledges for the next five years. Our own goal is to obtain a minimum of $135,000 in pledges for each of the next five years, with the hope of going as high as $150,000 for each year. For the past five years, Shamrock has received gifts totaling $75,000 without an organized campaign. The challenge is ours.
