Ways to Invest in Sacred Heart Parish 

Sacred Heart Parish is a faith community of generous individuals and families.  We are extremely grateful for the support of many which helps us fulfill our mission.  In addition to the regular Sunday giving program, we are always happy to accept donations with specific designations to Sacred Heart Parish or Sacred Heart Academy.  The Business Office can accept and receipt all types of donations, including the following options:

Gifts of Cash

The simplest way to make a contribution is to write a check, use a credit card or donate cash. Your gift can be unrestricted, offering the freedom to apply it where most needed, or you can designate your gift to an area of your own particular interest.

Gifts of Securities

Stocks or other securities can be transferred to Sacred Heart Parish or Sacred Heart Academy Foundation. Please contact the office for specific transfer instructions.

Memorial or Honorarium Gifts

Consider a tribute gift to honor a living person or in memory of a deceased loved one. A memorial gift is a very fitting way to express your love by contributing to a cause that benefits so many young people in the community. 

Endowment Gifts

Your endowed gift helps to secure the future of Sacred Heart Academy. The principal of your gift is never touched. Only the annual interest is ever used.

Legacy Giving

The traditional planned gift is the bequest. Because a bequest is a gift made through a will or trust, the individual making the gift retains full use of the property during his or her lifetime. Sacred Heart Academy or Sacred Heart Academy Foundation can be a contingent beneficiary of your estate in case your primary beneficiary(s) is deceased at the time of your death. 

Gifts of Life Insurance

A way to invest in Sacred Heart Academy with a significant gift at a low cost is through the use of a life insurance policy. By naming Sacred Heart Parish  or Sacred Heart Academy as the irrevocable owner or beneficiary of the policy, you leave a legacy of Catholic education.
