Give to SHS
Sacred Heart of Jesus School is committed to providing an affordable Catholic education for our families. The mission to provide Catholic education to all cannot be done without the kindness and generosity of the community who supports our school by giving of time, talent, and treasure.
Each day our students pray for our benefactors. Please consider becoming a friend of SHS and help us continue to provide our students with quality, affordable Catholic education.
If you are able and interested in volunteering to help with our efforts to spread the good news of Sacred Heart School, please contact development team member, Ann Weaver, for more information.
We have been blessed with many parents and friends of SHS who have provided services for our school when able. Some examples are the construction of new front steps, donations of time and talent through painting and cleaning, electrical and plumbing work. We are always in need of friends who have talents that can improve our school facilities and enhance our academic program. If you are willing to offer your services, please contact Ann Weaver or Sister Danielle.
IHM ENDOWMENT FUND
The IHM Endowment was created to celebrate the IHM Sisters’ 100 years of service and dedication to the Sacred Heart School. The Endowment was a surprise gift in their honor presented by a committee comprised of faculty, parents, alumni and Father Messner. The committee raised the funds for the initial endowment and then held a beautiful reception at which they presented the surprise to the IHM sisters. This endowment was created in 2010 and funds continue to be generated to secure the sustainability of the school’s existence.
If you would like to make a tax-deductible contribution to the IHM Endowment Fund, please contact Ann Weaver. Your gift will undoubtedly benefit future generations of Sacred Heart School students and families.
Please write checks to Sacred Heart School, 235 Nevin Street, Lancaster PA 17603 and designate IHM Endowment Fund (in the memo).
You will receive a thank you letter which will serve as your document for tax purposes.
We are grateful for your consideration of the IHM Endowment Fund. Since the IHM Endowment Fund is truly focused on leaving a legacy, you may also consider leaving a legacy by naming the IHM Endowment Fund as a beneficiary in your will.
Each year, generous sponsors donate $500 to enhance the learning environment of a particular classroom or subject area. Those dollars are used by faculty to improve the student classroom in a manner which will directly benefit the students’ experience. If there is a subject matter (i.e. Music, Library, Physical Education) or grade level that is of particular interest to you, please consider becoming a HANDS sponsor. To explore the program further, please contact Ann Weaver.
THE GREAT LOTTERY RAFFLE
Each year we conduct a lottery raffle fundraiser to benefit out Technology Fund. The lottery runs the whole month of February. Each day's winning number mirrors the PA Evening Lottery winning number.
GUARDIAN ANGEL FUND
This fund exists to help SHS families who are financially struggling with meeting their tuition obligation. The current size of the fund is dwarfed by the financial needs of our students. We welcome you to assist SHS families in need, contact Ann Weaver.
