Stewardship Programs - Celebrating Philanthropy
We gratefully acknowledge all of our donors who make contributions to Convent & Stuart Hall. Your philanthropy supports many areas of the student experience, including enhancements to our academic programs and spaces, as well as helping us retain exceptional faculty. We are profoundly grateful to all the donors who contribute to and support Sacred Heart education in San Francisco.
Cor Unum Society - A Lifetime of Exceptional Generosity
Members of the Cor Unum Society are recognized for lifetime giving $1 million or more through major gifts, gifts to the Annual Fund, event participation and endowment giving.
Named Spaces and Endowment
Named gifts create a lasting legacy and strengthen the donor-designated facilities and programs at the school. Gift levels necessary to establish named endowments and secure named spaces typically begin with a minimum gift commitment of $250,000.
Leadership Level Giving Recognition
Leadership donors who support the school with cumulative annual gifts of $7,500 or more are recognized with an annual cocktail reception hosted by our President and Division Heads. These donors are also featured prominently in our Annual Report.
Principal donors who give or pledge $50,000 or more annually and members of the Cor Unum society recognizing those who have given $1M or more in their lifetime are invited to an intimate benefactor dinner featuring student performances hosted by our President and the Board of Trustees. The event is an opportunity to thank this group for their support while offering a chance to share the success and impact of their gifts.
Annual Fund Giving Circles
We honor donors who have given consecutively to the Convent & Stuart Hall Annual Fund at leadership levels for 10 or more years and recognize gifts at the following levels.
L'Esprit de Sacré Coeur Circle
$50,000 & above
Très Bien Circle
Prize Day Circle
Named for St. Philippine Rose Duchesne who brought Sacred Heart education to the United States, Duchesne Society members demonstrate their commitment to a Convent & Stuart Hall education by planning gifts that will benefit future generations. Such benevolence is not marked by levels of giving but by a generosity of spirit that ensures the school will continue to meet higher aspirations with every graduating class.
The generosity of event sponsors and underwriters is the cornerstone of Parents Association events, which are held in support of Convent & Stuart Hall students. Countless other community members support these events by attending, volunteering, donating gifts in kind and bidding on auction items.
Membership in the Sacred Heart community lasts a lifetime, as does the support that alumni offer to Convent & Stuart Hall, and many are a significant part of the recognition groups mentioned above. Annually, the Alumni Bulletin recognizes donors who make a gift of any size to the school for at least five consecutive fiscal years.
