There are several ways of supporting the Sacré Cœur Foundation. How you choose to do so will depend on your own personal circumstances and areas of interest.
Sacré Cœur Foundation Building Fund provides additional financial support for major building works, including the acquisition, construction or maintenance of School buildings. Gifts are tax deductible.
The Annual Giving Program provides funds for specified priority building projects. Gifts may be made at any time throughout the year and are tax deductible.
The Sacré Cœur Foundation Scholarship Fund will give the opportunity of a Sacred Heart education to young women regardless of their financial circumstances. Your gift, great or small, is tax deductable. Gifts to the Sacré Cœur Foundation Scholarship Fund will be invested, and over time, the annual income used to provide part or full scholarships. The scholarships will be open to the public and will be awarded on the basis of merit and/or need. Scholarships will be awarded at the discretion of the Principal and the Chair of the Sacré Cœur Foundation.
Capital Appeals will be conducted from time to time. Major capital developments as set out in the School's Master Plan will continue to be a priority for the future. Campaigns with set targets and timelines will be determined in consultation with the School Board.
Bequests can make a lasting difference. A very special way of providing for the future of our School is by including the Sacré Cœur Foundation Limited as one of the beneficiaries in your Will. Click here to obtain information from our Bequest Brochure.
Library resources and scholarships make a real and practical difference to the learning and educational experiences available to our students. If you are considering making a gift for one of these purposes, please contact the Foundation Executive Officer .
Sacré Cœur Foundation Professional Development Grant for Staff in recognition of the invaluable professional contribution made by the staff. A grant of up to $10,000 was made available to provide a professional development opportunity for a staff member in 2009. The Foundation is seeking financial support to ensure the Professional Development Grant will be made available in future years.
Endowments will be invested and the income earned will be used to provide scholarships and bursaries to assist with student and staff professional development.
Fundraising events are held throughout the year and everyone is welcome to attend. Proceeds for each event will be directed to a special need.
Cor Unum Walk
A special component of the redevelopment of the historic Sacré Cœur gardens is the Cor Unum Walk where the contributions of our students, alumnae, school families and friends are celebrated and current and future students can be inspired for their own journeys of learning and life.
The Cor Unum Walk was officially opened on 17 March 2013 and it creates a physical and distinctive welcome to the many visitors and to the hundreds of students who travel the Cor Unum Walk daily. It forms a component of the main thoroughfare from the School gates towards the main buildings, situated between the entry driveway and the tennis courts and oval.
The Sacré Cœur Foundation would like to take this opportunity to thank the many hundreds of people within the Sacré Cœur community who have purchased a paver to assist in the realisation of this important project.
To order a paver, please click on the link below to download the order form. Orders submitted by 1 September 2016 will have their engraved brick included in the Walk during Term 4 2016. Orders are installed on an annual basis.
