  • Corporate Matching Gifts

    Many corporations match gifts to charitable institutions such as Sacred Heart Schools, thereby doubling or tripling a gift to the school. In annual publications, donors are recognized in the giving society commensurate with the total gift amount.

    Check with your employer’s Human Resources department to determine if a matching gift program is available to you, and to obtain the documentation necessary to initiate the match.
