Foundation looks forward to Giving Hearts Day 2017

As part of the lead up this week to Giving Hearts day on February 9th, the Sacred Heart Foundation plans to share with you ways your dollars are making a difference for students attending SHS!

It has been another year of student success, achievement and growth for Sacred Heart School. K-12 Enrollment has grown by 24% PK-12 and 27% K-12 in the past four years as Sacred Heart continues to provide our students with challenging academic, athletic and extracurricular opportunities.

The Sacred Heart Foundation provides a direction for Sacred Heart in enhancing present giving opportunities while creating new opportunities for alumni, families, friends and supporters to be moved by the Holy Spirit in ensuring the long-term viability of the Parish and School into the 22nd Century.

Nearly half of the families enrolled at Sacred Heart rely on Scholarships & tuition assistance in order to be able to choose Sacred Heart School. The Sacred Heart Foundation exists to help raise and manage school scholarships and endowments.

Support Scholarships through this one-day donation event!

All gifts donated will be matched, up to $5,000, by a generous Sacred Heart supporter. The Giving Hearts Day Campaign encourages you to get a friend or two to #GOMATCHYMATCHY with you!

  1. Plan to go to on February 9th to make your donations. This is a 24 online giving opportunity, which runs February 9th from 12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. at You can choose the “Sacred Heart Foundation” when specifying the organization you would like to support.
  2. You can donate in person by stopping the parish office at 200 Third Street NW, East Grand Forks during business hours on February 9th and drop off a $10+ check donation dated February 9th.
  3. Ask a friend to match your gift, either by forwarding this email, or on social media, to match your commitment to donate to the Sacred Heart Foundation on Giving Hearts Day. If you love social media — post a fun “matchy-matchy” photo with you and your friend using a caption including “#gomatchymatchy with the #SacredHeartFoundation” anytime from now until February 9th to show your support for the Foundation and help raise awareness for Giving Hearts Day.

Having just wrapped up a successful Catholic Schools Week at Sacred Heart, we want to thank you for your support in changing student lives and shaping successful futures.
